SOURCE: I bought a replacement Dayton electric condenser

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).

I have no problem, in fact I want to tell you about the fan we bought in 1987, which was hung in the living room of a mobile home unit. It ran 24/7 till 2007 the fan was moved to the porch area of our new...


I'm a vintage fan collector. I had a fan like that in my collection at one point. It had the same "E89510 C" label. But I ended up parting it out because it was extremely difficult to repair. Do you know where you got it and who it was made by?

I have a Model MOD-CAT-23785-380 Ceiling Fan. I broke the arm that holds one of the blades. I need a replacement.


Davd the "arm" is technically a "Blade Iron". You can find them at most Home Improvement Centers (Lowe's & Home Depot) as they both sell Hunter Fans and universal parts.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I just installed a new hunter ceiling fan (model #27301) and it will not work at all


I'm going to have to ask you the same question(s) that Hunter tech service will ask, if you called them.

1. Are you certain you have it wired correctly? Hunter's color coding & installation instructions are one of the worst in the business.

2. Is the wall switch ON? In addition, is the circuit breaker for the wall switch ON?

We had a new Hunter fan installed today and it works fine but it makes a whining noise. The electrician says it may need a "dehummer" reostat. Was he joking? R.B.Doner


LOL - He was half joking. Not all wall rheostats are designed to work with electric motors and in fact, it could burn up the rheostat. Most home centers have what you need in their electrical dept. To find the right one, look at the specifications in the Owner's Manual, for the amount of amps the fan motor draws at high speed. This will help determine, which rheostat fits your application.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

My AC unit comes on, but the fan doesn't work or blow air


Hi,
The condenser fan motor has gone bad... this is a very common problem. Find the specs. on the side of the motor and then get a replacement from Goodman or from a company like www.grainger.com
The fan motor is rather easy to replace, the worst part is getting the fan blades off of the shaft of the old motor. Use WD-40 and be patient...

Goodman 3 ton outside unit fan not blowing


Motor, wiring and/or capacitor. If the sticker on the side of the motor isn't burned off you can get the motor info off that. Model numbers from the motor do little for locating the motor but my help. Best thing to do is get the AC motor specs and look up online (cheapest) or go to a motor shop. The specs you need would be as follows.
Horsepower-Such as 1/4 or 1/3
Voltage-Most likely 240/1 (240vac single phase)
Rotation-CW/CCW looking at the shaft end of the motor
Amps
Frame size
