Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
Hi, the new motor takes its own capacitor to run it. This is what the 2- brown wires are for, one will have a white stripe. You will need to but a seperate run capacitor for this motor, a 5 uf, 7.5, or what ever it calls for. they should have told you when you bought the motor. It will have to spade connectors on it where the brown wires connect alone. Use the dual capacitor if that is what you have for the other 220 volt wires.Black and purple will be your 2 hot wires.You can connect either one to the old capacitor on the fan terminal and the other to the load side of the contactor, so when the contactor closes it will energize the motor.Or, take both the black and the purple wires and to the load side ( outlet side ) of the contactor, connect one to one side and the other to the other side. The line side is where your 2 hot wires that connect to the contactor from the incoming wires from the electrical box, you want to be on the other end. I would connect the black to the contactor load side and purple to the old capacitor as long as the old wiring is still on it as it has to be fed by a hot wire from the contactor. Each wire, blk, and purple has to have 120 volts to each one and you can get this a couple of ways. The contactor has several terminals that are not used and if you wire them on the outlet side, they will only be energized when the contactor is closed on a call from the stat, very easy to do. You will have to get a coulple of crimp on connectors to put on the ends of the wires, but the brown ones should already have them for this capacitor. Do not try to put the brown wires on the old run capacitor as you will burn out the new motor! Go get the small run cap for these 2 wires for about $10. I know that you can do this wiring change just remember the blk is hot 120, and purple is hot 120, = 240.volts. If you have removed all of the wires from the old capacitor, then use the contactor to connect to. The compressor wires must stay on the old run cap on the hermetic side and this old cap. must be fed by a hot wire from the contactor to the common terminal, that is marked with a C..If you look at the new motor diagram, it will show you also. Please dont forget to rate me as I know you will be kind, and I will check in on you to see how you are doing. Get this capacitor and it will run. This is a must!! Please keep me posted.

This motor can be connected using just three of the four wires. Put a wire nut on the brown/white wire. Connect the brown wire to the fan terminal on the capacitor. Connect the purple to the common terminal on the capacitor. Connect the black to the defrost board. There should be instructions printed on the motor label for connecting the motor this way. The brown/white wire is the same as the black wire electrically. If you connect an ohmmeter between the black and brown/white wire you should read close to 0 ohms.

The black and white wires get 220 from the contactor. The brown and brown/white go to the capacitor. I do hope you bought a matching capacitor to go with the new motor. They don't cost much and make the hook-up way easier.

The extra wire is a additional speed wire and the existing model that you are installing is possibly not set up for that additional speed. It depends on the exact model of air conditioner that your post says you have, but we can never be sure until you confirm the model number of your Goodman, if its a split unit, a package unit or condenser fan or evaporator fan. Let me know all of those answers and I will help you determine the answer, Thanks, Sea Breeze
