The ac unit should have a diagram on one of its covers, usualy on the compressor or controls cover.

The compressor has three terminals, Common, Start and Run.... The terminals read left to right, top to bottom just like pages in a book. So if theres one on top, its Common then Start will be the first one in the next row. If theres two on top, it'll be Common on the left and Start on the right then Run on the bottom.

The run capacitor wires in between Start and Run and line voltage is applied to Common and Run.

How do I reconnect the capacitor?


Not easy to explain. The capacitor is split, it has two values, or like two capacitors connected internally with a center tap between them. Two capacitance values, maybe 5uf and 20uf, the lower value for the fan motor and the higher for the compressor, with terminals C-common, F-fan, M-compressor.
Capacitor terminal C is the center tap and that takes 3 connections, line (power) - fan line common to capacitor, and Compressor line common to capacitor. Notice the fan and compressor have a power line not common to capacitor, just power line.
Capacitor terminal F has one wire connecting to Fan terminal C, fan may have three or four terminal writes, two for power with one power being common to capacitor connection and the other power alone, two power connection wire leads. Fan motor third line is capacitor, connects to the capacitor alone. Four wire configuration fan motor is not likely your needs. Omit or ask again for further explanation.
Compressor is similar to fan, only with a capacitance value higher than for tha fan motor. Two power leads, one straight power, the other power lead connects to the capacitor power. The third compressor lead connects alone to the capacitor.
The with is to draw a diagram and level the colors of each lead and terminal lavels too. The motors nameplate may indicate wire color code, the a-c nameplate wiring diagram may be present in the control wron wiring compartment, the goal is to find clues or to trace each wire and verify what they connect or do, take notes on your drawing.
Basically the motor has three terminals, L1 - L2 - C, or C- S-R (Common, Start,Run)

Replaced a ge condensor fan 3 wire with new dayton the wires are different...old fan has a wire connectort mouted to it orange,black yellow, the new one 2brown 1 with white stripe, purple, black, i have...


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.

How to wire in new hard start


It's very simple to install a 3N1 Supco Hard Start Relay, Some refrigerators have a run capacitor located on compressor or mounted nearby. It will be important that you use the run capacitor in with the 3N1 Hard Start. Here is a Photo of the=> URCO810_3_N_1
1_31_2013_3_26_55_pm.jpg
The instructions come with the 3N1 Hard Start Relay. Can you please post the model number of your refrigerator here so I can look up a wiring diagram? Look around the fresh food section door frame for your model number. I do need to know so we can get the right run capacitor in the 3N1 hard start circuit, Thanks Sea Breeze

Looking far data sheet or equivalent circuit/connection diagram for a 97F9834 capacitor


You can find a datasheet located here. Page 14 contains your capacitor's information. As for a connection diagram, it's fairly simple. The dual capacitor (three prong) has a connection for fan, compressor, and common. Common (typically white) goes in the middle, compressor goes to herm, fan goes to fan. You should see the labels etched into the metal either on the side, top, or bottom. As for the colors of the fan and compressor, the brown wire should be for the fan, and the compressor's wire should be yellow. Of course, your system should contain a wiring diagram, which is usually attached to the door. Consult this diagram before assuming any wire colors I tell you are correct. Also, you should have some form of cutoff switch. Ensure this switch is OFF before doing ANY electrical work on your system. 220v in AC units WILL KILL YOU, especially coming off the capacitor. Best of luck!

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.

How do I wire a new condensor fan motor to the new capacitor? The old capacitor is longer and it has 3 terminals. the new capacitor is much smaller and oval. It has 2 terminals. the fan motor has 3 wires,...


Before attempting any of these recommendations, First disconnect all the power sources and check your wiring diagrams on the motor and condensing unit.
On the old capacitor if you look on the top near each of the three terminals. Are they marked, fan - C - herm? If they are that is a dual capacitor and that needs to stay because that is also your compressor capacitor.
The Red wire from the conductor is Run and it's connected to C on the old capacitor.
Follow the Yellow wire and see if it goes to the S or start terminal on the compressor, if it does then that is the Start wire for your compressor and it connects to herm on the capacitor.
For the fan motor a lot of times the wiring connections are printed on the motor label.
Check the label, Purple should be run and connect to C on the old capacitor.
Black should be Common and it connects to the opposite side of the contactor as the Red wire. If the Red wire connects to T1 then the Black wire connects to T2.
The Brown wire shoud be the start wire on the fan motor and it connects to the Fan terminal on the old capacitor.
Now if you want to use the new fan capacitor. Take the Purple wire from the motor and look for any marks (red paint or a dash) on or beside the terminals on the new capacitor. If there is an identifying mark then connect the Purple wire to that terminal, if no marks you can connect it to either terminal. Then you need a jumper wire from C on the old capacitor to the purple side of the new capacitor. Then take the brown wire and connect it to opposite terminal of the new capacitor.

There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the access panel. If you can't read it, check online for model wiring diagram. Don't guess, you may cause more expensive damage.

Need wiring diagram for Ruud Model UPCA-048jas


The wiring on these is pretty straight forward

Basically a contactor, either DPST or DPDT, depending. Input power connects here.

Compressor C terminal connects to one side. R terminal connects to the other. 1 terminal of the run capacitor connects to the terminal with the R terminal of compressor. The other side of run capacitor hooks to S terminal of compressor. One wire of condensor fan hooks with compressor R terminal, the other condensor fan lead hooks with compressor C terminal.

Only things missing from all this is a hard start kit and crankcase heater. Let me know if you want to know how to hook those up.
