SOURCE: Wiring a retrofit soft start blower into a Ruud 5T/100k gas pack

Chances are, you've smoked the motor. You basically put 120 volts across the speed windings of the motor when you did this.

What you need to do is, with the new motor, you will have neutral, and speed 1, speed 2, speed 3, etc. Hook one of the original black wires to neutral (it would be best to trace which of the two black wires is connected to neutral, and connect this one.).

Black on the new motor is probably High speed, red is probably low, orange is medium speed. Hook the remaining black wire to one of these, and no more than one of these, or you will smoke the motor again.

Attach a wire cap and/or electrical tape to the remaining wires to insulate them from contacting anything else.

SOURCE: I am replacing the a/c

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

SOURCE: i HAVE A HEIL HEATPUMP.CONDESING FAN MOTOR WENT

a commom wire comes from the top of the contacter , attactch this wire to two prong cap, then attatch what is usually a brown wire to the other side of the cap , find coommon wire from fan motor and attatch it to the same side you attatched the common from the contacter ,caps are not polarity sensitive just make sure brown fan wire is opposite common

SOURCE: black, white, red, wires on motor and the connect

White is always neutral so I am going to say hook it to brown, unless you have another white wire.

Black on a motor is usually high speed, so hook it to black
Red is usually low speed to hook it to yellow. If you do not get
high speed then hook black to yellow and red to black

Hello, Typically your common wire will be white, high speed- black, medium speed- yellow, medium low-blue, red- low. The motor could still run for a short time if it was wired wrong but will either trip a breaker or go off on it;s overload when it's gets hot.

I have Dryers whirlpool model gew9200lw0 not heat


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Blower motor will not stay running it periodically slows down by itself or stops working all together


Sounds like the resister pack malfuntiong or the blower motor going bad. Pack is a cheaper fix and they age badly anyway. The pack is near the motor.

Carrier 48sx gas pack. Won't turn on. No smell. No igniting sound. Blower fan works. How do I troubleshoot this?


Remove the panel from the heater section, you will need to watch what happends as there is a call for heat. There may be a light on the control board that lights up or blinks to indicate a call for heat. The inducer blower (exhaust blower) will start. INn a few seconds after the blower starts, the igniter will glow orange. After a few more seconds the gas valve should open and the burner will ignite. If the inducer does not run, you may have a bad motor or control board. If the igniter does not glow, you could have a bad pressure switch, bad pressure switch hose or a broken igniter. If the gas valve does not open, you may have a bad control board or bad gas valve. If you get no light on control board, bad fuse, bad thermostat or bad control board.

My dryer wont heat up


Hello,
First, I assume that the drum spins OK but there is no heat. Many things can cause this. From the most likely cause to the least likely:
1) An open thermal fuse. This is a small "thermostat" with 2 wires at the middle/top of the heater "box" (a tall narrow box on right in the back of the machine), or a plastic type on the duct close to the blower, depending on the model. You will need to remove the back cover of the machine to see these. Check with an ohm meter after disconnecting one of the leads, or jumper the 2 wires together to see if heater works (don't use this way though, fire hazard... replace the device) If this proves to be the cause of the problem, it would be wise to check all ducts and blower for excessive lint buildup. This will reduce air flow, causing overheating and blown thermal fuses.
2) A burned out heating element. Remove tall box on right, element slides out from the bottom together with the "carrier". Look for broken coil, or check 2 terminals at bottom with ohm meter.
3) Burned wires at connectors. Check for obviously overheated wire terminals at all sensors (thermostats and thermal fuses in back), heater box, main terminals where power cord hooks up, etc.
4) Bad thermostats. There are usually 2 or more. A high limit on heater box, just above terminals on the bottom. 1 or 2 will be on the duct next to the blower. Check these with an ohm meter (or continuity checker). Some have 4 terminals, the extra 2 small terminals are small heaters inside the thermostats which alter it's temperature characteristics. These will usually read around 4000 ohms or so. Check the 2 main largest terminals for continuity.
5) Only getting 110 volts: This is often overlooked, but if for some reason one of the poles feeding the 220 power from the house wiring is open but the other is OK (for example, houses with fuses where only one fuse is blown, or a bad circuit breaker with one pole open). The motor and timer run on 110. If the side of the 220 line that feeds the motor is OK but the other one is open the motor will run but the heater, which needs 220 will not heat. Check for 220 volts between the 2 outer terminals where power cord connects or between the 2 "hot" terminals of the 220 outlet the dryer is plugged into.
6) Bad centrifugal switch in motor. This is what actually turns the heater on, for safety reasons, so the heater cannot come on unless the fan is spinning. Otherwise without air flow past it, the heater would burn out.
There are 2 large gauge (usually red or yellow) wires going to the connector on the motor, these go to the contacts inside the motor that turn the heater on.
Hope this help in solving the problem...

Fan doesn't come on


First is the blower motor casing hot to the touch? If so, the motor is probably bad, capacitor good? If the blower isn't running the burners will shut down due to overheating. You could have a dirty flame sensor, circut board problem or loose/bad wire connection.

No power to ac indoor fan motor


sounds like you might have a bad control board. try putting a jumper wire on the control board low voltage terminals R and G your fan should come on and run if you have 120v power to fan motor. double check that you do have 120 leaving board and going to motor. if no 120 bad board if you do have 120 bad motor. if it is the board it likely has a bad blower relay which is common in amana models and goodman equipment.

Trying to hook it up 220 but not enough terminals on numb 6


it should be in manual because that compressor run both ways. it really not going to make start up faster. how long is the cord and the gauge of wire.Compressor company only give you a cord that plug’s directly into wall, after that your on own see the manual for cord size.
