Did the old fan use 4 wires or 3 wires. If it used 4 then connect the brown and brown/white to the capacitor. Then connect the Black to L1 and Purple to L2. If it used 3 wires then tape up or put a wire nut on the brown/white wire. Connect the brown wire to the Fan terminal if the capacitor has 3 terminals or to either side if it only has 2 terminals. Look at the motor data plate. It should have the wires labeled on it. Purple should be the run wire, connect it to the Comm terminal of the capacitor if it has 3 terminals or the opposite side from brown if it has 2 terminals. Another wire should go from this connection to L1. Then connect the Black wire which is common to L2. I hope this isn't too confusing. Let me know if I need to explain it better. Also if the motor data plate says that Black is run and Purple is common just adapt the instructions above to the wire colors.

The gray tan and the other wires usually have plug on the end and the plug into the fan unit when it's put together . The part the mounts to the ceiling should be blue black and white

Replacing a switch on a ceiling fan


Wall mount. Cut the power to the switch by tripping the breaker at the "fuse box". You will need help to see what breaker controls that lighting circuit.
Get new switch,remove old switch from wall mount and note the color coding of the wires.
There will be screws that attach the power wires to the switch and
wires that go to the fan.Power wires are one black and one white. The other wire is a green ground wire.
Remove the wires,one at a time and connect to the switch,IF there is enough wire length to do so.You will need pliers to yank the wires out.
The stripped,bare wire at the end should go on the new fan switch so when you tighten the wire end,the wire end tightens onto the terminal clockwise.

If the stripped end is broken off,strip another 3/4" of wire and wrap the wire around the terminal,clockwise.

You MAY test the switch B-4 you put it back into the wall.Be careful of the "hot" black wire.

Click the circuit breaker back off and install into the wall box.

I replaced an old mercury T-stat (York with model number 2TH11704024) installed a new T-stat (RTH6350). The wires that I I have are O (orange), G (green), Y (yellow), T (gray but not used in new T-stat),...


Did you shut the power off to the air handler/furnace...... before you installed the new thermostat??? You may have shorted out the transformer or blown the transformer fuse...... If you try to put the Fan switch on the stat to Fan ON does the fan come on ..... if it does the transformer is OK.. On the new thermostat did you program it to tell it that you had a heat pump system ???? Looks like you had it wired right. Here is a pdf manual for a RTH6350 http://customer.honeywell.com/techlit/pdf/PackedLit/69-2416ES.pdf

Its on page 13 Advance setup for tell the new stat that you have a heat pump....There is also a Honey well Hot line on page 2 Hope this helps.

I bought a replacement Dayton electric condenser fan motor. The original GE had 3 wires. L1 L2 & the fan capacitor wire. The Dayton replacement model 4MB21 has 4 wires, L1 L2 and 2 capacitor wires tan...


The tan/white wire can be insulated/capped and not used. Use and ohmmeter to take a resistance reading between the tan/white wire and L1 & L2. There will be no resistance between the tan/white wire and one of the others. This will be the common wire. Connect it to one side of the contactor. Connect the tan wire to the fan terminal on the contactor and the other wire to the common terminal on the capacitor (that is if you have a 3 terminal capacitor, if you have a 2 terminal capacitor connect tan to one side and the other wire to the other). Then connect the other side of the contactor to the common terminal on the capacitor (on a 2 terminal capacitor connect the contactor to the side that doesn't have the tan wire on it).

Hi,
Yes, that can be confusing...hook the tan wire with the white strip onto the same line wire as the one going to the capacitor...usually the L2 wire....so then in reality you have the two tan wires hooked onto the common and the F terminals of the cap...

Trying to install a fan motor for my outside ac unit replacement motor has 5 wires on it. my old on had only 3 driving me nuts


Your old moter had three wires. Common High and brown for capacitor. This one sounds like a two speed. Dont worry Now you have two brown wires for you capacitor instead of one. Tape off brown wire with white strip. Connect other brown to cap. You should have a white or yellow for common wire and black for high. Tape of the other extra wire and wire in like the three wire.

Hunter Fan # 20723 The Westminster - lights delayed when turn on


Here is the answer I received from Hunter Technical Support.

"The light fixtures are manufactured with a limiter that prevents a higher than recommended wattage bulb from working. The limiter causes the slight delay even when the correct bulbs are is in use."

Pretty annoying if you ask me.
