Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I just purchased an fse1028sf to replace my faulty fan motor. I purchased it from a a/c supply store. My existing fan only had three wires. They were brown, black and purple. Black to: capacitor "c". Purple to: T2 and brown to: "fan" on the cap. The new motor has: brown, brown/white, black and white. The paperwork that came with the motor says to put brown & brown/white to the cap, black & white . The cap has a red wire on "fan". I'm confused

Hi, this is a different wiring diagram then what you have . The 2 brown/wht wires are for the run cap only. Black and white are t-1 and t-2. They sold you a motor that takes its own run capacitor to run it with just both brown wires. Take the diagram from the new motor back along with your original. They will give you the right run cap to go with this motor. Yes, the red wire is power to fire your existing cap and old motor. You will need another cap to run this motor. Don't put the 2 brn/white striped wires on the old cap! They have to be alone on there own run cap. Go back to the parts house and they will show you very fast the wiring diagram and give you the cap. This is a very easy fix when they give you what you need. Keep me posted and ask them to give you what you need to run the motor. A 5 uf run cap perhaps?
Keep me posted.

Desktop computer power issue


Hi Ryan,
Sorry but the video clip doesn't give me much to work with.
Can you confirm that the PC actually powers on and your operating system boots?
If the computer boots then the main fan attached to the CPU is connected and possibly running, if it wasn't working the computer would beep and power itself off.
So I'll assume you are talking about the case fans or the power supply fan....
The case fans could be something as simple as a disconnected cable or more complicated like a damaged wire or worst case the fan itself has become faulty and failed.. If you are thinking of removing any wires it would be best to take a photo or make a note of where it needs to be connected to but it would be better to test another fan connected in its place if possible.
If it's the power supply fan then the only option would be to purchase a new power supply that matches the specification of the existing one or even with slightly higher specs.
Best Regards
Mike

Fan will only start when you blow into it, and when it does start, it's noisy. Where do I get a Marshall replacement fan off the newer Marshall amps? These fans are said to be better than the ones...


Bearings have gone in it... The fans are standard part. Take number off the label and search for the same unit. Note if it has two or three wires. If it has only two wires, replace with one of same voltage and current or wattage rating and of course that fits size-wise. Three wire ones have a sensor and you are best to replace with exact unit.

I purchased a reoplacemetn motor for my Nutone/Broan LS 100SE bath fan based on a reccommendation here. The new motor, part # 89169, came with five wires compared to the original motor's three. How do I...


The additional wires are for a starting capacitor, not included with the motor. The easiest way to hook-up is to order the Outlet Assembly p/n 88617000 (available at Coastal Tech Supply.) The assembly includes the capacitor, connector, and shroud; and will replace the existing outlet assembly in the housing. Minor electrical work is required to remove the old assembly and install the new one.

Fan motor on condensor not starting. I have located the capacitor but unable to recognise any writing. it is a12000btu split unit.


There are two type capacitor. One for running capacitor for compressor and one for condenser fan motor by each separate capacitor. Some times two in one capacitor being used. Just check in your condenser unit, in your 2 in one capacitor, there are three parts and one has four pins and other two has each two pins where you can clip the wire.Remove existing wires and replace same with new capacitor.

Now, in this capacitor near each each part mention as "C" "H" " F". Cmeans compressor common and H means for compressor starting and F means fan starting. Be careful don't interchange any wire.
And also while replace capacitor don't add or reduce the mfd. Ex.. your existing capacitoris 35+3 mfd means 35mfd for compressor function and 3 mfd for fan motor function. Hope helpful.

If the diagnostic came up with the code for the camshaft sensor and you have replaced it have you erased the fault from the memory on your cars ecu if not do so as without doing so the problem will still exist.

Hampton Bay model 11420 52 inch fan did not come with any instructions.


If the fan and light assembly are fully assembled, all you've got to do is connect the original wires to their respective(white,black and uncoated copper ground) wires. Then mount your motor/light assembly using the proper supplied harware. Next you just put on the fan blades, connect each one with the three screws to the bracket. Do the same for the other two,three or four blades. and attach them to the motor assembly. P.S. When you are attaching the fan blades, make sure the side that faces down is correctly positioned and that it matches all the rest. If this blad is to be operated using the pull cords you're all set. If the fan is mounted too high up and it is not remote controlled then you'll have to purchase a special three speed wall switch for it. In the latter case you would leave the fan speed on high on the unit itself.

Problem with fan spinning on an outside unit. It is humming, not turning.


Only two possibilities. Check the fan motor for bearing play. If the shaft moves side to side or the motor is hard to spin then it is time for a new motor (note being able to wiggle the shaft in and out of the motor is normal, even new motors will do this). Other possibility is the run capacitor for the fan. Usually in a/c's they use a dual run capacitor for the fan and the compressor. this will usually be a grey or silver, round or oval cylinder with either two or three terminals on it. If there are three terminals, they will be marked, (C, HERM, and FAN) mark all wires to make sure that they make it back to the same terminal on the new capacitor. If there are only two terminals then it doesn't matter which wire goes to what terminal, but if there are multiple wires going to a terminal, those wires must be kept together on the same terminal. NOTE: the capacitor will need to be purchased from a HVAC service dealer or some place like W.W. Grainger or Johnstone Supply (these are wholsalers and you will need a business afilliation to purchase).
