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.
Sincerely,

    Thank you for your help. The old 3 wire motor had the blk wire conecting to the defrost circuit board. How does the new 4 wire motor connect to this? 5 days in FL without a/c is brutal..

  • Robert Horton
    Robert Horton Sep 07, 2010

    Connect the blk wire to this defrost board as it is half of your 220 volt circuit to run your motor. I am glad you told me this. Now, you have the purple wire to deal with, You can connect it to the load side of the contactor or if the old capacitor is wired up to run the compressor, you can get the other 120 volts from there.
    Please let me know. I will be home from work at 5:00 P.M., which would be 6:00 your time, I believe.

    Hi, am am home early. Just keep in mind that the 2- brown wires, one with white stripe, stand alone on the new capacitor to run it. So that just leaves the black and purple. Now that I know you have a heat pump, one lead will go to the defrost board to stop the condenser fan motor when it goes into defrost mode in the winter months. So, all you need to deal with is the purple wire which is the other half of the 220 volts to run the motor along with the new 2- wire run cap. You can either put it on the contactor ( part that has points in it on 2- sides ) that closes when the thermostat calls for cooling and sends 220 volts to all high voltage motors, or if you had a dual capacitor on this unit with 3- sets of terminals coming out the top, marked Herm, Fan, and C for common, you can connect the purple to one of those terminal as you are only using the terminals for the compressor to run now. The fan will not be connected there as you removed the motor terminals. This will give you full 220/240 volts or what ever it may be to run the new motor. Just remember, you will HAVE to add this new 2- terminal capacitor for this motor to run properly, or it will burn out.
    Sincerely,

    Connect the 2 brown wires to the single run cap alone, do not tape off one and connect the other to the fan connection on the old cap. You can connect the purple to the C or common terminal if you haven't removed the compressor wires from it, but like I said before, you can look at the motor and it will show you how to wire it.

    Good, now connect the black to the defrost board and the purple to the common on the other cap if all the wires are still there and if is hot, or connect it to the contactor, one terminal on the load side for 120 volts and it will run when you turn on the stat.

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.

SOURCE: CHANGING OUT A FAN MOTOR

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.

SOURCE: replacing old 3 wire condensor fan motor with new 4 wire

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

the new ge fan requires its own capacitor, the brown and the brown/white go direct to new fan capacitor. black to relay (leg one of power) purple to relay (leg two of power. the compressor will have a wire to the relay and the other to the herm terminal. you now will have nothing to the original capacitor fan terminal.
The new motor will have the diagram showing this. you need the capacitor that goes with the new motor. the grainger guy should have sold that to you with the motor.

I have an old york unit model #HICF030506a and just replaced the fan unit but forgot where to connect the 4 wires . I have a tan, tan w/white strip , black , and purple wire. Can anyone help???


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.

I am assuming you still have both motors, if you look on the side they will show you what wires go to what. Your Brown/white should be for the capicator. blk should be blk, blu might be white and red be red. I couldn't really say for certain with out looking at the diagram on the side of the motors.

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 two brown wires go to the fans capacitor. The capacitor should always be changed with the fan motor.

It sounds like your unit has a dual capacitor. One side for the fan and the other for the compressor. All you will be doing (After rewiring the compressor wires as they were originally.) is abandoning the fan side of the capacitor, and wiring your new capacitor to the brown and brown with stripe wires. It does not matter which terminals the brown wires go on.

If new motor is 4 wire verses 3 wire use seperate capacitor between brown wires and don't use terminal on 3 pole cap. If this motor has a white strip on one brown wire you can wire it the old way using only 1 brown wire and tape off the other. Can't remeber this morning which brow wire to use . I need to leave.

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.
