Air compressor drain valve produces brown liquid

There are two reasons for this, 1st water is staying in the tank too long and should be drained more often and 2nd is what no one wants to here, the unit may be passing oil by the rings. We know everything starts to wear out. My suggestion to fix this problem is to install an oil water separator and capture the liquid that comes from the bottom of the tank. The oil will separate from the water and allow water to go to the ground while capturing the oil.

Need capacitor wiring diagram

No model number gotta shoot from the hip on this one:

The cap has 3 sections: Herm for compressor, F for fan, and C for common.
The common section of the cap gets a hot wire off the power cord, a wire from compressor marked C on compressor and a white common wire from the fan gets connected to C on that cap. These wires are almost always white in color on American OEM. The fan has a small brown wire that connects to F on tha cap. The compressor has a wire marked S on it make a note of that color wire and connect it to the section on the cap called HERM. Herm stands for hermedtically sealed compressor. So both your commons and a hot wire go to C. You need one small brown wire which goes to F from the fan. One wire marked S on the compressor goes to Herm for compressor starting. S stands for start winding.
Lets look at typical American fan motor wires: The fan has a black wire for high speed a blue wire for medium and a red wire for low. It has white wire for common, and a brown wire for capacitor. Connect your common fan wire to common and the brown wire to F.
With that cap properly connected basically all you would need to do to make it run is connect a fan speed, the compressor wire marked R for RUN, and and the other power wire.

I Have a Stanley air compressor Bostitch model APC-OL6-UK it is spitting brown liquid how do I clean this please

The brown liquid you are getting out of the compressor is water with rust in it from the inside the air tank. Somewhere on the bottom of your air tank there is a valve you need to open from time to time to drain the water from your tank. If you are getting rusty water from the air outlets you probably have a lot of water in the tank. If you can take the compressor outside, with pressure in the tank, where the water won't stain anything and slowly open the valve to drain the tank.

Why water is coming from the compressor?

The gas and liquisd is cooling off in thast area and the temprature difference causes the water to build up. Yhis is normal for a condensing fan system. normally htrere is a pan that catchs the water that aloows the heat to boil it off.

Please help.... kenmore 580.74124400 AC wiring color coded for the capacitor. wires fell off and all else works compressor is not turning on

Take a look at the capacitor. A terminal with just 2 connections is for the fan and has a small brown wire from the fan there and is usually marked with an F. The compressor portion of the cap has 3 terminals on it, usually marked as HERM for (hermetically seald compressor), a large brown wire goes there most of the time from the compressor. The other 3 wires all are white and go to the portion of the cap with 4 connections usually marked as C for common.

The two brown wires go to the fans capacitor. The capacitor should always be changed with the fan motor.

It sounds like your unit has a dual capacitor. One side for the fan and the other for the compressor. All you will be doing (After rewiring the compressor wires as they were originally.) is abandoning the fan side of the capacitor, and wiring your new capacitor to the brown and brown with stripe wires. It does not matter which terminals the brown wires go on.

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.
