Are you looking to wire up the fan or rewire the whole outdoor unit? The fan capacitor is the one with two prongs and you should have two brown wires coming off the fan. One brown wire per terminal

the new ge fan requires its own capacitor, the brown and the brown/white go direct to new fan capacitor. black to relay (leg one of power) purple to relay (leg two of power. the compressor will have a wire to the relay and the other to the herm terminal. you now will have nothing to the original capacitor fan terminal.
The new motor will have the diagram showing this. you need the capacitor that goes with the new motor. the grainger guy should have sold that to you with the motor.

Wiring- Connecting wiring on replaced fan motor


Your new fan motor should have a diagram with it or at least printed on the side of the motor, that will help a lot from your end. As for me, I don't know what unit you have, so I will try to help you with just the basics.

Your old motor probably had 3 wires. One went to the contactor, that is the "Line Voltage", one went to the Common terminal on the old capacitor (COM), that's the other "Line Voltage" wire, and the last one went to the "FAN" terminal on the old capacitor. The reason the old capacitor looks different is because it works for both the compressor and the fan motor (split capacitor). You still need this hooked up for the compressor to work.

The new fan motor.
These vary in brands and wiring so I can not tell you the colors without knowing exactly which motor you have. On the new motor wiring diagram, you should see the "Line Voltage" as described above that 2 of the wires are ran to each other (just on the diagram, not wired together on the unit). This is your power wire that goes to the contactor on the unit, usually black, and your Common wire that runs to the capacitor. You can still run this wire (COM) to the common terminal on the old capacitor since you still have to use the old capacitor for the compressor and the common terminal should still be jumper-ed from the contactor to the (COM) terminal. Then you will probably have 2 wires for the new capacitor, usually Brown and Brown/White. These wires run to each side of the new capacitor and doesn't matter which terminal. Then you will take a new jumper wire from the (COM) terminal on the old capacitor to the terminal on the new capacitor that has your Brown/White lead. Make sure you secure the capacitors inside the unit so not to touch anything surrounding them. Your new motor might also be a "Reversible" motor that has reversing wires also. Again, your new motor diagram can tell you how to hook these up. You have to have it spinning the right way, most of the time it is CCW (counter-clockwise).

I'm sorry I can't be any clearer on this, but without knowing the brands, models, etc, I'm in the dark. If you need any additional help, I would be glad to help! Good luck and hope you get to cooler days!

Looking far data sheet or equivalent circuit/connection diagram for a 97F9834 capacitor


You can find a datasheet located here. Page 14 contains your capacitor's information. As for a connection diagram, it's fairly simple. The dual capacitor (three prong) has a connection for fan, compressor, and common. Common (typically white) goes in the middle, compressor goes to herm, fan goes to fan. You should see the labels etched into the metal either on the side, top, or bottom. As for the colors of the fan and compressor, the brown wire should be for the fan, and the compressor's wire should be yellow. Of course, your system should contain a wiring diagram, which is usually attached to the door. Consult this diagram before assuming any wire colors I tell you are correct. Also, you should have some form of cutoff switch. Ensure this switch is OFF before doing ANY electrical work on your system. 220v in AC units WILL KILL YOU, especially coming off the capacitor. Best of luck!

I disconnected the capacitor on my Westinghouse HVAC unit. I took pics to help me put the replacement on and my pics don't show exactly which prongs the wires hook to. I know the blue wire goes on...


You are talking about a three post capacitor. One post may have 2 or 3 prongs, but it is still the same post and it doesn't matter which prong you put it on as long as your are on the right post. I am going to try and send you a video of a three post capacitor hoping it will help you. One post is for the "fan" whiich, by what you are telling me is the blue wire. "fan" will be marked right on the top of the capacitor next to the post. Sounds like the Red is "herm" which is a compressor wire. Orange and Yellow are the "C" wires. One wire will go to the fan and one will go to the compressor.
Again,, It doesn't matter which spade or "prong" you are putting it on as long as you are on the herm, c or fan post. hope this helps.

From cabinet you have three wires. 2 Orange,and 1, Black
1 Orange goes to on side of run capacitor the other Orange goes to the (2) R on the relay. The Black goes to the overload (round black disk). 1 White wire connector on end goes to run capacitor the other end connects to the (1) S on the relay.
The run capacitor is a small black cube like device with two prongs.

Where to connect three wires


You should have:

one wire from the compressor that will hook to "HERM".
one wire from the fan motor that will hook to "FAN"
one wire from the relay ("hot" wire") will hook to "C".

Kenmore dryer 3prong cord installation diagram


if its a" flat cord" what-ever color jacketed 3 wire cord, the 2 outside wires are your 2 hot power wires they go to L1 and L2 on your dryer,the center is the N neutral wire and goes to the N terminal,usually the L1 and L2 are a gauge larger than the neutral: HINT: the center is normally neutral on both the cord and machines terminal board in the back of the dryer,there usually is a diagram on the dryer on how to install the input power at the place you hook up power

The AC unit outside is running but the fan is not moving at all....The air coming into the house is not cold at all. Is the problem a bad capacitor? If so can I fix this myself? To be safe, will turning...


Could be a bad capacitor however, it could be a bad motor. (make sure you have disconnected the power from the unit ) The cheapest and quickest way to see is to get a capacitor and install Once the new capacitor has been installed if the fan doesn't activate then fan motor is also bad. The capacitor is a round or oblong and it is either silver or gray If it is a dual capacitor it will also connect to your compressor. There will be several wires coming out of it follow the brown or yellow wire from fan itself to the capacitor If it is a dual capacitor it will also have wires coming from the compressor to the capacitor. Make a diagram of the wire placement on the capacitor before removing to insure you place the correct wires back to the correct location. VERY IMPORTANT. Thiis capacitor will have voltage stored in it even though you have disconnected the power so make sure that nothing comes in contact with both prongs i.e. touching the prongs to metal together on th a/c unit while removing It will give you quite a jolt. Take the capacitor to an appliance warehouse for replacement to insure the proper capacitor is given to you. Hope this helps good luck on your repairs If I have helped you let me know

Old capassitor has 3 prongs new capassitor has 2 prongs


The old motor relied on a leg off of the ol cap marked FAN. No need to bother with it anymore because the new motor probably has a different cap rating therefore it needs its own wittle capacitor. Cute ain't it? That new motor will probably have a common wire to connect to that Old cap at the C mark on it though. It will have 2 brown wires to connect to that new cap for it. (insulate that cute little cap to prevent any shocktastrophies) The black wire will of couse go to wher the old one did on the contactor. Read a little ditty I affectionatly wrote for further info entitled 'old motor had 3 wires new motor has 4 WTF"
