You have a reversible motor or a two speed motor check the old motor for speed and rotation

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.

Wiring- Connecting wiring on replaced fan motor


Your new fan motor should have a diagram with it or at least printed on the side of the motor, that will help a lot from your end. As for me, I don't know what unit you have, so I will try to help you with just the basics.

Your old motor probably had 3 wires. One went to the contactor, that is the "Line Voltage", one went to the Common terminal on the old capacitor (COM), that's the other "Line Voltage" wire, and the last one went to the "FAN" terminal on the old capacitor. The reason the old capacitor looks different is because it works for both the compressor and the fan motor (split capacitor). You still need this hooked up for the compressor to work.

The new fan motor.
These vary in brands and wiring so I can not tell you the colors without knowing exactly which motor you have. On the new motor wiring diagram, you should see the "Line Voltage" as described above that 2 of the wires are ran to each other (just on the diagram, not wired together on the unit). This is your power wire that goes to the contactor on the unit, usually black, and your Common wire that runs to the capacitor. You can still run this wire (COM) to the common terminal on the old capacitor since you still have to use the old capacitor for the compressor and the common terminal should still be jumper-ed from the contactor to the (COM) terminal. Then you will probably have 2 wires for the new capacitor, usually Brown and Brown/White. These wires run to each side of the new capacitor and doesn't matter which terminal. Then you will take a new jumper wire from the (COM) terminal on the old capacitor to the terminal on the new capacitor that has your Brown/White lead. Make sure you secure the capacitors inside the unit so not to touch anything surrounding them. Your new motor might also be a "Reversible" motor that has reversing wires also. Again, your new motor diagram can tell you how to hook these up. You have to have it spinning the right way, most of the time it is CCW (counter-clockwise).

I'm sorry I can't be any clearer on this, but without knowing the brands, models, etc, I'm in the dark. If you need any additional help, I would be glad to help! Good luck and hope you get to cooler days!

Fan motor on condensor not starting. I have located the capacitor but unable to recognise any writing. it is a12000btu split unit.


There are two type capacitor. One for running capacitor for compressor and one for condenser fan motor by each separate capacitor. Some times two in one capacitor being used. Just check in your condenser unit, in your 2 in one capacitor, there are three parts and one has four pins and other two has each two pins where you can clip the wire.Remove existing wires and replace same with new capacitor.

Now, in this capacitor near each each part mention as "C" "H" " F". Cmeans compressor common and H means for compressor starting and F means fan starting. Be careful don't interchange any wire.
And also while replace capacitor don't add or reduce the mfd. Ex.. your existing capacitoris 35+3 mfd means 35mfd for compressor function and 3 mfd for fan motor function. Hope helpful.

I REPLACE CONDENSOR FAN ON A LENNOX BUT THE FAN IS OVER HEATTING AND STOPS& COOLS DOWN AND RUNS


Did you replace the fan blade or the fan motor? If you replaced the fan blade, is it exactly the same blade as the old one? If it has more blades, or wider blades, or if the blades are at a different pitch than the original, it is capable of moving a greater amount of air, but the old fan motor is not big enough in Horsepower to do the extra work. Thus, you should change the blade again to one that is exactly the same as the old one. If it is a window unit, you could try running the fan on a lower speed and it might work.If you replaced the fan motor, you must check to make sure that the new motor is exactly the same as the old one. You also could have it wired wrong, so you must check that also.

Condensor fan runs after compressor shuts off


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. Goole replacemotor with 2 brown wires for more info or call where you bought it. Sorry got to run.

Bottom blower dose not go on


you should have two wires that go to a capacitor for turning the motor the right way durring start up then you should have two wires for run current. Now my motor has red and blue as the run voltage and blue and a white wire to the capacitor -6uf+/-10-5%@250AC. This cap is mounted on your fan shroud and refer to you top motor wire configuration, as both blower motors is in like the same wire colors to cap. Now my lower motor keeps blowing the thermal fuse and dose not overheat as the thermal needs at least 360 degrees of heat to blow yet my moter when running is not that hot.... I would replace the motor and cant seem to find one where did you find yours.

Wiring compressor


The two terminal cap is only for the new fan motor. Connect the compressor wire back where you found it, on the 3 terminal cap. It's the terminal marked, "herm". The "common" terminal on the 3 terminal cap must still be connected to one side of the 220 power at the contactor. One side of the 220 goes to the common on the compressor. The other side of the 220 goes to the run winding on the compressor AND the common terminal on the 3 terminal capacitor.
