Compressor fan unit wiring

I had to replace a fan on my carrier unit and I did not mark the 3 wires I disconnected for the fan. One yellow, one brown, and one black. I know the yellow connects with the other yellow wires on the capacitor and I think the black goes to the output side of the power block and the brown to the other side of the capacitor, but I am not sure of these two connections.

    Replaced defective fan motor on my a/c unit. Old motor had three wires: black, yellow, brown. New generic motor has black, white, brown, brown w/white stripe. This new motor came with a new two terminal capacitor. Old cap. had three terminals. The black and white wires from motor connect across the line voltage and the other two wires connect across the capacitor. After install and trying to run the unit, found that compressor turns on for about two seconds and shuts down, but fan keeps going. This repeats every 4-5 minutes. Compressor has three wires, two for line voltage and a third that connected to old capacitor. This third wire I connected to the new capacitor, but not sure if connection is right. Could this be the problem with compressor not working properly or is it something different?

Should be OK to hook it up and try it, make sure the fan is blowing out, if not, reverse the wires..

I need to know if a mercury thermostat is bad will it allow the ac to come on but not the heater


need to know what thermostat you are referring to
the coolant thermostat has no connection to the ac system
if it is the ac thermostat the it maintains the cabin temperature by activating the ac compressor as required
if you are referring to climate control then that controls the heater flow to keep the ac temperature at a set temperature with the ac compressor operating all the time
so as an answer to you question , check the climate control module

No steam coming out from steam cleaner


I know its a silly question but is it plugged in? and does it have water in it? Is there any lights on it to show that power is on? Have you plugged it in elsewhere? If no power light on check the fuse in the plug, only replace it with one of the same rating. If this cures the problem and the power light is on, it should be working, if it blows the fuse again then it has a short and needs repairing or replacing

Household steamer not heating at all


Well, first thing, just hook up service water and turn it on so the water heats up. Leave it long enough for water to get hot. If water doesn't get hot like should, then heating unit is malfunctioning. If it is getting hot after a while, you pull the handle trigger and water comes out, you have to wait long enough for the hot water to get to the head/trigger for it to go into the nozzles. If it was working ok before, and you were waiting for the water to heat, then then it should be working fine. Tell me what is happening if you wait for water to heat and get to the nozzles. I'm right here at my computer and we can get this thing going if the heater unit is good. Regards, Rigger.
