your looking at $175-$225 for just the single phase motor depending where you purchase, I just replaced mine(identical unit) due to screaming dry bearings, if you replace it your self make sure to keep new wires tight along side of unit or fan will cut them if loose and its a fan- 5mfd/25mfd compressor@440volt cap

Does the motor data plate say anything about the motor. You can hook up a motor like yours with 3 wires. First use an ohmmeter and check the resistance between the brown/white wire to the black then the yellow wire. The resistance between brown/white and one of the others should be pretty much 0 ohms. If not check between the brown wire and the black and the yellow. Which ever wire has 0 ohms with the brown/white wire is the common leg. You can put a wire nut on the brown/white, it will not be used. Next the brown should be for the start winding and the other wire left over will be the run winding. Then connect the common to L2. L1 will go to the run winding and one side of the capacitor and brown will go to the other side of the capacitor. I hope this isn't too confusing. Let me know if I need to explain it better.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your help-I had the motor leads reversed and when I placed the brn/white to the common on cap like someone else had instructed it of course shunted out and blew the fuses in the disconnect. I used my meter(duh) and switched the motor leads. We got air!! THANK YOU!"
