Wiring would be for low voltage 1-3, 4-2. L1 feeds 1-3 and L2 feeds
4-2. For high voltage L1 feeds 1 and L2 feeds 4 with the 2-3 terminals linked by wire or bus bar.

How to wire Dayton capacitor E136401


It appears this is a 7.5 microfarad (mfd) capacitor like the ones installed on fans. If your fan motor has two brown wires, in addition to the black and white power wire, just fasten the two brown wire to the leads on the capacitor and insulate the connection with electrical tape and mount the capacitor in some dry convenient location inside the controls section of your unit. Be carefull to mount the capacitor in a location where it does not short an electrical connection.



If the capacitor is replacing the low side of a dual capacitor, for example a 35/7.5 capacitor, extend another lead from the common side of the dual capacitor to one side of the 7.5 capacitor and place the one brown lead from the fan motor to the other lead on the capacitor. If trying to replace the lower side, it is better to just replace the dual capacitor.

Replaced a ge condensor fan 3 wire with new dayton the wires are different...old fan has a wire connectort mouted to it orange,black yellow, the new one 2brown 1 with white stripe, purple, black, i have...


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.

My whole house fan has been having problems. The motor gets very hot and turns off. After cooling, it can work again (though I am not keeping it on!) The whole house fan is a Sears fan. The original...


Ada, I think you have already diagnosed the problem. It's the Leviton timer. For whatever reason, it can not handle the fan motor without over heating. The best indicator, was the melted hot wire. Perhaps the switch was defective from the start. I suspect the timer was rated for a ceiling fan and not a whole house fan.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a 1/3 hp through the wall dayton exhaust fan. It has (3) wires, Balck/white and red. What isthe red for?


The motor should show wiring on its side, if not my guess is that its another speed, black is high and red would be low or a slow speed you use either black or red not both unless you have a relay to control the switching tape up the unused lead or it will short out.

HOW DO YOU REVERSE THE ROTATION ON A DAYTON 6XJ04 MOTOR?


If the motor is reversible, you will have 4 small leads that have pigtails that will connect to eachother to make the circuit. Usually they are 2 colors and you will either hook up the matching colors for CCW or opposite colors for CW. If you do not have these leads, you will more than likely have a non reversible motor. You can also look at the data plate on the motor itself and it will tell you the rotation. If it says REV. then it's reversible. Hope this helps and good luck!

I have a dayton 1 1/2 h.p electric motor, and need the wiring diagram for 460 volt. the part number is [1] 3n013bb. thanks


Line is L1 L2 L3 to line voltage. wire nut 4-7 together wirenut 5-7 together and wirenut 6-9 together connect 123 to line for low voltage 123 together 456 together 679 together. This works on all dual voltage 3 phase motors. Some of the newer Daytom motors have a plug that you just turn for changing voltage. Rudty
