Do manufacturers of electric, cap-start/cap-run, 1ph motors use a standard wiring code for the capacitor wiring?


probably not as different manufacturers use what ever wire is available at the time of manufacture
however there is a standard attachment method for the capacitors and that is the diagram that you should be seeking
for example-- many capacitors have two lots of connected terminals and the motor will have only 2 wire ,so connection is to one each of the terminals that is not connected
others have 3 wires so one wire on one terminal and two wires on the connected terminals
This is knowledge that motor repairs will have learnt in their trade so it may be advantageous for you do do a lot of home work on power

How to Reverse the Rotation of Single Phase Capacitor-Start Electric Motors


Reversing the rotation of electric motors can be done easily with 3-phase motors. This can be easily achieved by swapping the connection of any two motor leads. But 3-phase motors are usually found and used for industrial purposes. The ones found and used in our homes, from water pumps to electric fans, are single phase capacitor-start type motors. Unlike 3-phase motors, reversing the rotation of single phase electric motors is no easy task. Swapping any two motor leads will not result in the reversal of the motor rotation. Analysis of the motor windings and connections are necessary before any modification can be done to achieve the desired result. Let's take a 3-speed single phase capacitor-start electric motor with electrical diagram shown below as an example. Make sure the motor is disconnected from the power supply before attempting to follow this tip. This tip is intended only for individuals with electrical knowledge, necessary tools, and understand the risks associated with handling electrical equipments and devices.

The first step in the process is determining the start winding which is connected to the line (AC white) and to one side of the start capacitor. To accurately determine the start winding, disconnect all motor leads from the start capacitor and the speed switch for multi-speed motors and then setting your ohmmeter to the lowest scale (R x 1), measure the resistances between the AC white line and each of the motor leads connecting to the start capacitor. The one with the least resistance is the starting winding lead.

Once the start winding lead going to the capacitor is determined, reconnect the capacitor then connect the black AC line to the found start winding lead (marked X). Connect the white AC line to L of speed switch, the motor lead formerly connected to AC white to 3, red to 2, and white to 1 as shown below. Leave the green/yellow ground wire connection as is.

AC condenser motor 3 wires, black,orange,brown. Which is L1, L2 and capacitor ????


The black wire is usually the L1 line connection. The brown wire is usually the capacitor wire, and that leaves the orange wire for the other line connection - either L2 or Common depending on the voltage involved.

My old motor on my central air unit has 4 wires and my new motor has 5 wires. wich brown wire do I use and what do I do with the extra one


There should be a wiring diagram on the side of the motor. Usually when you have two brown wires they connect to the terminals on the capacitor.

The replacement switch has 4 wire ports marked L,1,2,3. The fan has a black wire (power) and 3 other wires from a plastic capacitor box, 1 green and 2 brown. How do the wired connect to the switch?


dear sir
try to find out first all wire wich type of you shold use ampere meter for testing thise wire .
ampere meter turn into continuty mode and conecect its one lead (wire cable) to your motors black wire and watch the display what is rating there .and write it next wire check and date write like this way check your all 4 wire and now who is high number data its conect to number 1 after that some low conecet number to switch number 2 after that who is lowest conect to number 3 and that black colour wire conect to the L mark then try to start your motor
hope answer the question
thank you

Wire an AC fan motor


Look at the schematic on the new motor , but i think if the 2 purple wires go each one to each side of the capacitor, the black to line and you need to connect the other line which Im 99% sure is the whte wire which is the only one left.Remember you need 220v between the fan motor lines for it to work.

Wrong direction of rotation


swap any two leads L1 to L3 this will change rotation hope this helps a common color code is brown orange yellow in that order known as BOY at power feed you can change the wires at the disconnect load or motor side
