Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling
I am replacing a fan motor on the condenser unit of a Carrier heat pump. The motor I am replacing is a GE P612S, 1/12 HP. The new motor is a Dayton 4M261J, 1/6 HP. Other than that the specs are about the same. The capacitor and wiring set-up of the motors is different and my problem is I don't know how to connect the new motor/capacitor. The old motor had three wires and the new has four wires. On the old motor, the Brown and Yellow wires went to different terminals of a three-terminal capacitor, and the black wire (marked line) clipped into a circuit board. I bought a capacitor for the new motor, and it has two terminals which are unmarked. The new motor has 2 wires marked for the capacitor, a brown and a brown-white pair. It's black wire is marked for line 2 and it has a purple marked common-line 1. So, I have some ideas on how to wire the new motor into the existing set-up, but I really don't know the right way. With electrical components, there is often only one chance to do it right. I will appreciate it if somebody can enlighten me on how to tie in the new motor.

If it is just the condenser fan that means you have a fan relay that has welded shut. Turn power off to your unit and trace the wires from your condenser fan back into the control panel at the unit. You'll have 3 wires going to it. 2 go to the run capacitor and one goes to the fan relay. The one that goes to the fan relay is the part that needs to be replaced. If you have no fan relay and it goes to the main contractor, half of your main contractor is welded shut and will need to be replaced.
