Dayton Motor and capacitors for Carrier AC Unit (model # 38ck030300)

I purchased a Dayton Motor (4M205G), and a Dayton capacitor (MPP2505370J) and I need to confirm the proper wiring setup to the capacitors and contactor. I have a 1.5 pole 30 amp 24VAC Definite purpose contactor from Mars.

Currently my compressor will not start, but I think I have something miswired.

The 2 brown wires to the cap in first legend is how they are wired electrically,inside that motor the run winding is common to that brown one they cappped off in the 2nd option, but the powers still going to Run.ommon and run get the juice either way, its just another way to do it, but electrically as to sides of power and where they go is no different, just different way to do it.you can run power in on the Run terminal on the run cap, the run winding and run cap and start cap if equipped are Run to Run to Run.So the hot leg for the run winding also goes to run on the caps, run to run to run.,run winding to run cap to run on start cap.

Replace compacitor on Carrier 5 ton 3 phase AC


Your 3 phase unit should not have a capacitor. I'm guessing it's single phase. If it's a single capacitor than the compressor should not be going to it also. To test the motor, common to start plus common to run should equal the ohms you get between start and run. For instance, 1.2 ohms+ 2.2 ohms= 3.4 ohms. Follow the wiring diagram on the inside of the door, send model number!!

Can the compressor run w/ a 'blown' capacitor?


The capacitor starts the motor. You would have had some other problem had the motor not started. The A/C ran until the failing capacitor no longer provided the ability to start the motor at which point your A/C died.
My A/C bulged both its capacitors 2+yrs ago and it's been running ever since they were replaced, no problem.
I think you're OK.

Look at the old capacitor. The mircofarad rating should be printed on the side. If you can't read it then take the capacitor or the model # with you to a heating and air dealer the sells Carrier products. The repairman should have put one it for you.

Do no what wires go where on the capacitor for our carrier a/c unit


Some capacitor start motors have two brown leads (one with white stripe) that go to capacitor. Others wire into the start winding, if that is the case follow wiring diagram on the motor. Also if this is in an A/C unit follow the wiring diagram in the unit (usually on inside of cover)

The condenser fan for carrier xarios 300 is not


there is a run capacitor is probably bad.
you can purchase a replacement one from slakey brothers. However the capacitor will still have a charge after the power and wires are removed. after turning off the breaker use a long bladed screw driver and ground the electrical leads to discharge the capacitor before removing. take it with you to the supply house along with the model and serial number of the condensing unit.
