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

Iam replacng my home a/c blower motor. My unit hasa red a black and a white wire. My new motor has a black wire a blue wire a red wire and a yellow wire. I need to know which color wire goes to which


On the original motor, red was low speed, black was high speed and white was common. The new motor should either have a diagram on the side of it or within the box for verification, but the black SHOULD also be high speed and the red wire SHOULD be low speed , the blue wire SHOULD be medium and the yellow SHOULD be common. However, you MUST verify those connections on the wiring diagram provided with the new motor before you connect or you will probably let out the MAJIC SMOKE !!! The speed you decide not to utilize can just be taped off and zip tied to the bundle.

You made no comment about two brown wires, and if either motor has two browns, they go to the run capacitor.

on the motor should be a diagram detailing the wires. brown white goes to either side of the capacitor and brown wire to other side of capacitor. hi speed goes to normally open contact on the indoor fan relay and the wire designated common on the motor goes to the other side of power from the relay contacts.

How do you hookup a universal hvac condeser motor the old one had a black wire,red and a brown wire plus the green&yellow ground the new one has a black wire a yellow then it has back connetor thats...


WHAT??? Did the new motor come with a wiring diagram? Typically you will either be using a "3 wire" connection or a "4 wire" connection. 3 wire is for using the existing capacitor (provided it's the right size), 4 wire is for using a separate capacitor. You should have 5 total wires on new motor HIGH/LOW/COMMON/CAP & CAP. Then possibly some separate wires for ground and rotation. The ground goes right where you mount the motor, rotation...make sure its blown up and out of the machine. 3 wires would be...1 SPEED 1 COMMON 1 CAP. 4 wire would be 1 SPEED 1 COMMON 2 CAPACITOR WIRES. Good Luck!!

There should be a wiring diagram on the side of the new motor.
The brown and the brown w/ white go to the new capacitor you should have bought with the motor.
The black and white go to your L1 & L2 power source. The remaining wires must be capped off.

The best way to wire that motor is to connect a separate capacitor to it. The brown and brown w/white stripe go to the capacitor. The black and red wires go to the contactor.

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.
