Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a 24" whole house fan with this GE 5KH3QPA0358 motor, but need to figure out how to wire it: This oldGE motor is super quiet 2 speed, single phase, 1/3-1/9 HP, 6.4 / 2.8 AMP, 1725RPM / 1140 RPM. Can anyone help with how to wire it? I need to find out how to wire 3 leads from the 2speed toggle switch to the motor's terminals, one for common, one for high speed, one for low speed. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: wiring diagram
The white wire is nuetral, if you are trying to make a shop fan or something like that then you hook it to the white wire which goes to the wide spade on the outlet. The black one which is the hot and goes to the smaller blade (looking at an outlet in the U.S. on the right hand side) on the plug and should be for one speed operation. The other three should be capped off if you use it this way. If not, then cap off the black on on the motor and run the hot wire on the plug through a three stage switch. To find what speed corresponds to what wire you have to check resistance to the white wire and the lower the resistance, the higher the speed and hook up to switch accordingly. Also, ground the case with a solderless ring connector under a mounting screw attached to the ground prong on plug. Hope this helps.

if you have a volt/ohm meter you can unplug all the wires to the valve set the meter to ohms and check to see across each terminal which have measurable resistance these should be the coil, usually the diagram is on the panel door i guess this is not the case so you will probably have to see which wires have voltage when your tstat is calling for heat also you need to make sure there are no other safety holding this circuit out let me know how you make out

You almost have it Look closer at the run capacitor. It has Herm, this is for the compressor, Com or C and F or Fan.
1 of your power wires is the fan speed so connect them accordingly usually black is hi, blue med, & red is low. You are "feeding" voltage to the selector switch on 1 side and coming out to the fan motor speeds.
Next you have a "Common" wire on your fan motor (this means its Common to all the other connections inside the fan motor to me. It is usually white. Connect this to the other line of power usually the Com on the capacitor unless it connects to a strip on the selector switch. But 1 of these 2 places will be the other side of your Power when plugged in. Lastly the brown it is usually the fan capicator only wire and it will connect to the fan "F" terminal on the capicator this terminal will not have any other wires connected to it.
This should make you a happy camper. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.
