How to wire new motor & capacitor

HEEELLLLPPP!! I want to replace the motor and capacitor on my carrier model 38tho60300, but the new capacitor has only 2 terminals (old one has 3)and the motor shaft is 4 times as long. How do I do the wiring? Is there a schematic for the average "joe"?

Do not panic. The new motor has several ways to connect common. READ MORE
If this is a fan for inside then you have the speeds to contend with. The info on the READ MORE link is for that of a central unit but it covers your question too. As far as the shaft being too long you have to cut that yourself. I have an electric hacksaw that cost $500 bucks from milwaukee tools that does a fair job of that.

My carrier model # 48ss-036100331 induced-draft motor will not start


On some of those inducer motors there is also a capacitor in the blower compartment on the left side of the burner section. It is possible that if you have 230v coming from the board CM terminals and if the motor is new maybe you have a bad capacitor in the blower section. Follow the wires to the capacitor and check microfarad reading to that capacitor. Caution there maybe 2 in this area but one is for the indoor blower motor and the other will be for the draft motor. The blower capacitor may be somewhere between 10 or 15 mfd but the draft inducer capacitor will be around 3 mfd. hope this helps

My Carrier rooftop ac blower motor quits blowing. It'll run fine for a while, maybe up to 8 hours or so and then just quit. If I go up to the roof and spin the fan motor and then come back down an


There is probably only 1 wire leading to the F or FAN terminal on the capacitor. You remove the 1 wire to the fan side of the capacitor and connect it to the new fan capacitor. Then you take an extra wire that you will need to make, buy, or find, and connect it from the opposite terminal on your new capacitor. Meaning the other side that of the capacitor. Then connect that new wire from the new capacitor back to the old capacitors C or COM terminal. Clear as mud I know, but basically you run your fan capacitor wire to the new capacitor, then the other side of the capacitor runs back to common on the old capacitor. And beware! Those things can hold a charge!!! Disconnect all power & discharge the capacitor! Hope this helps

You need to check the wiring to the limits and safety devices with are in a number of locations, make sure all connections are tight.The most common cause for the blower to run is the high limit device which is the one mounted above the burners on the flat metal panel with two wires.

Check and tighten all wiring. Replace the capacitor and add a HardStart to the capacitor.Check the indoor coil for dirt/dust/obstruction. Check the outdoor fan motor for over-heating.

Wire an AC fan motor


Look at the schematic on the new motor , but i think if the 2 purple wires go each one to each side of the capacitor, the black to line and you need to connect the other line which Im 99% sure is the whte wire which is the only one left.Remember you need 220v between the fan motor lines for it to work.

Carrier Furnance Fan / Blower Doesn't Start (Model 58GP-125-GA)


sounds like a bad capacitor usually screwed to the blower housing (round or oval shiny can)
this gives the motor a kick start)
depending on the motor there is usally two brown wires that go to it
check the mfd rating on it probably 5mfd and replace it with a matching one
its a very inexpensive part

Dayton Motor and capacitors for Carrier AC Unit (model # 38ck030300)


The 2 brown wires to the cap in first legend is how they are wired electrically,inside that motor the run winding is common to that brown one they cappped off in the 2nd option, but the powers still going to Run.ommon and run get the juice either way, its just another way to do it, but electrically as to sides of power and where they go is no different, just different way to do it.you can run power in on the Run terminal on the run cap, the run winding and run cap and start cap if equipped are Run to Run to Run.So the hot leg for the run winding also goes to run on the caps, run to run to run.,run winding to run cap to run on start cap.
