I had good luck finding replacement fan capacitors for a reasonable price on Match the capacitance in microfarads (uF or MFD) and match a working voltage greater or equal to the capacitor you are replacing. Many fan capacitors are dual units having 3 wires and two capacitance values. You will need to match both values, e.g. "3/1.5 MFD". If you match within 0.5 uF of the original value, it should work fine. Search on Newark's web site for "ceiling fan capacitors". They are about $8 a piece.

My van keeps heetin up and pushin water back into the coolant tank

Hi... you are going to have to do some more checking. After the engine is cooled down open the radiator cap, look for goo on the bottom of the cap. Look for oil or goo in the coolant.

What you PROBABLY have is a bad head gasket and the pressure is pushing the coolant out of the engine...

I wish I had better news...

Theres thick, brown goo built up on the inside of my radiator, I'm ready to flush it but how do I get the goo out of the whole system?

you may want to take this one to a radiator repair shop and have them to check it for a blown head gasket or a transmission cooling line leaking inside the radiator.

The screen will suddenly begin flashing on and off for long periods of times.

the inverter board has an issue, take the monitor apart and see if there a Capacitor that is bulged or leaking a brown goo from it, if there is a blown capacitor then replace them with same type and heat rating. after than put the monitor back together.

hope this solves the problem.

PS the inverter board is the Board with the big transformer on it its normally the yellow/brown colored board.

Brown goo coming from exhaust pipe on a ford

I would think that the brown goo is most likely to be caused byworn piston rings or valve seals which are allowing unburnt oil to be expelled into the exhaust system. The other thought is that it may be a coolant leak such as a head gasket problem which is allowing steam or water into the engine and then exhaust.

Trying to install a fan motor for my outside ac unit replacement motor has 5 wires on it. my old on had only 3 driving me nuts

Your old moter had three wires. Common High and brown for capacitor. This one sounds like a two speed. Dont worry Now you have two brown wires for you capacitor instead of one. Tape off brown wire with white strip. Connect other brown to cap. You should have a white or yellow for common wire and black for high. Tape of the other extra wire and wire in like the three wire.

I am replacing the a/c blower motor and capacitor. The old motor has 1 brown wire to the capacitor, 1 yellow wire to the capacitor (the yellow then loops from the capacitor over to the wiring panel), 1...

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

Brown goo in top loading washer

I had exactly the same problem a few years ago. I thought it was a leak from an oil seal and had technicians out. The problem was that I used the wrong washing powder. Find out from the manufacturer what washing powder you need to use and use only that.
