The extra wire is a additional speed wire and the existing model that you are installing is possibly not set up for that additional speed. It depends on the exact model of air conditioner that your post says you have, but we can never be sure until you confirm the model number of your Goodman, if its a split unit, a package unit or condenser fan or evaporator fan. Let me know all of those answers and I will help you determine the answer, Thanks, Sea Breeze

    Thank You for returning an answer and the votes! Bad connections to a motor will burn one out also. Wish I had the time to tell you all the repair war stories I have been through. Some were funny and others not a happy ending.

    But glad to here from you and what you found,

    Thanks, Sea Breeze

the new ge fan requires its own capacitor, the brown and the brown/white go direct to new fan capacitor. black to relay (leg one of power) purple to relay (leg two of power. the compressor will have a wire to the relay and the other to the herm terminal. you now will have nothing to the original capacitor fan terminal.
The new motor will have the diagram showing this. you need the capacitor that goes with the new motor. the grainger guy should have sold that to you with the motor.

I REPLACE CONDENSOR FAN ON A LENNOX BUT THE FAN IS OVER HEATTING AND STOPS& COOLS DOWN AND RUNS


Did you replace the fan blade or the fan motor? If you replaced the fan blade, is it exactly the same blade as the old one? If it has more blades, or wider blades, or if the blades are at a different pitch than the original, it is capable of moving a greater amount of air, but the old fan motor is not big enough in Horsepower to do the extra work. Thus, you should change the blade again to one that is exactly the same as the old one. If it is a window unit, you could try running the fan on a lower speed and it might work.If you replaced the fan motor, you must check to make sure that the new motor is exactly the same as the old one. You also could have it wired wrong, so you must check that also.

Can't find cooling fan resistor which i was told was located on the fan body. Low fan does not work...have replaced coolant switch at bottom of radiator. High fan comes on when heat gauge is about 3/4....


hi craig cooling fans on those cars have two or three connection wires. two wires means one speed. three wires means two speeds. they work with extra poles in the motor, not with a resistance. when you have a motor with 3 conn. wires and only one speeed, you have to replace the motor. most types haves only one speed. extra speed fan motors where optional for extra heavy duty or high temps. if you have more questions let me know. greetings.

OK, locate the terminals on the capacitor marked "HERM"(Compressor lead), "FAN", and "COM".(common)

HERM and COM remian as they are.

The wire going to "FAN" (usually brown) will be placed on either terminal of the new capacitor. (This is the ((usually brown)) wire comming off of the fan motor.) An additional wire needs to be run from the other terminal of the new capacitor to the "COM" on the old capacior.

What you are doing is bypassing the fan side of the old capacitor but still using the compressor side of the old Cap.

The fan should have a wiring diagram on it to help identify the wires if there is no brown wire. The other two wires will be identified on the wiring diagram as well, but one typically goes to the contactor and the other to the board.

Condensor fan runs after compressor shuts off


If new motor is 4 wire verses 3 wire use seperate capacitor between brown wires and don't use terminal on 3 pole cap. If this motor has a white strip on one brown wire you can wire it the old way using only 1 brown wire and tape off the other. Can't remeber this morning which brow wire to use . I need to leave. Goole replacemotor with 2 brown wires for more info or call where you bought it. Sorry got to run.

Bottom blower dose not go on


you should have two wires that go to a capacitor for turning the motor the right way durring start up then you should have two wires for run current. Now my motor has red and blue as the run voltage and blue and a white wire to the capacitor -6uf+/-10-5%@250AC. This cap is mounted on your fan shroud and refer to you top motor wire configuration, as both blower motors is in like the same wire colors to cap. Now my lower motor keeps blowing the thermal fuse and dose not overheat as the thermal needs at least 360 degrees of heat to blow yet my moter when running is not that hot.... I would replace the motor and cant seem to find one where did you find yours.
