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
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
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.

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

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.
