Pump motors used in most pool aplications can not be reversed. Changing the wires on the capacitor or reversing the line connections will not change the motor rotation. A failed capacitor can, from time to time, let a motor start "backwards" but it will not happen often if even at all. You might need to take the motor to a local electric motor repair shop for an inspection.

I need the wiring diagram for a Nordyne GS3BA-024KA condenser


3 wires for compressor, 3 for fan. 2 comp. wires go to the top of the contactor, the remaining goes to herm terminal on capacitor. 1 fan wire goes to the top LEFT of contactor, remaining 2 go to com and fan on capacitor. You will then have 1 wire left that goes to the com on the capacitor and should go back to the top RIGHT of the contactor. NOTE: IF YOUR FAN MOTOR IS RUNNING BACKWARDS (MEANING AIR IS NOT BLOWING OUT OR UP) swap the to fan motor wires on the capacitor (fan and com) this should reverse rotation. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TURN POWER OFF AND DISCHARGE CAPACITOR BEFORE TOUCHING WITH INSULATED SCREWDRIVER. Good Luck!

Its always possible for a component like a relay to damage a motor. I normally see them run backwards due to a weak capacitor. A single phase motor is not supposed to run backwards but I've seen it many times. Ive seen a new motor run backwards, new capacitor, new air handler. To answer your question, its possible but likely it was the motor or relay.

Bandsaw runs backwards


This is some sort of electrical stuff. Please make sure that the wires are connected properly. Check your manual for correct installation of the wires. If this won't work, Check the motor. Turn it around. If it still runs backward, it must be the capacitor.

My condenser fan is running backward


An abrupt cycle of power can cause a motor to run backwards. If you turn the power off again and wait 10 seconds or so (enough for blade to stop spinning) it should run the right way. Put the capacitor back the other way and try again.

Replaced fan motor and runs backwards has a dual capacitor on unit could i have plugged in to wrong term on cap.


Sounds like you have the run wire connected to the capacitor instead of the start wire. I expect you have 3 wires; Common-black, Run-probably orange, and Start-brown. You should have either L1 or L2 from the contactor connected to the Com terminal of the capacitor. Connect Orange/Run to the Com terminal of the capacitor. Connect Brown/Start to the Fan terminal on the capacitor. Connect Black/Common to the other side of the contactor. The fan should run the other way.

My air conditioner fan motor runs in reverse thus, none or very little air is coming out


The fan motor can be wired correctly for up flow and still run backwards for downward flow or reverse when you put the wrong value capacitor or connect a hard start capacitor to an already bad start dual cap. Case in point: I come across a condenser where the fan motor is running (in the right direction, up) but the compressor is not. I put a hard start cap on the dual cap. The compressor comes on but now the fan motor runs reverse. No other wiring was changed. The hard start cap connected to the defective compressor start cap shifted the current, voltage phase 180 degrees to make the fan motor run backwards. I removed the hard start cap, removed the defective dual cap and replaced the dual cap with a known good one and everything worked correctly.

Compressor fan motor runs backwards


Most likely a bad motor or bad capacitor. I would check the capacitor first as this is probably a $20 fix. The fact that it runs in the correct direction but at a reduced speed really leans hard to the capacitor.

Good Luck and hope this resolves things for you. Let me know.
