Have you tried to carefully strip the outer insulation off the wire, to expose the 2 or 3 inner wires? If not, doing that will give you the color codes.

    Have already done so...Only the ground wire has a sleeve the other ones do not. Followed the wire inside until it split. Is the wire to the capacitor the white wire??

  • Rich Landrum May 23, 2011

    The White wire is the Hot or Positive wire. Black is the Negative. If I were you, I'd try to find a complete cable with the plug intact at Appliance Factory Parts . That way, it will have a molded plug and not have to worry about which wire goes where.

    Never mind got it figured it out!! Thanks for your help~The black wire is connected to the on/off switch~~
    Thank you!!

    That would be correct. You interrupt the negative to turn any electrical appliance ON & OFF. Good man!

How many btu's does the fedders model # A6X05F2A have?

The unit should have a boiler plate behind the front panel indicating btu's and other electrical parameters. Look for it. Or Google the unit

5000 btu..

Fedders A6X05F2A fan has stopped working, and therefore air conditioning has stopped. Could the fan be the problem (or just the dirt and gunk I have to clean out?)?

Honestly, it could be either one. But, to save on costs, clean out "dirt and gunk" first. Be sure the unit is turned OFF and unplugged before attempting any cleaning. FYI - Hosing it out does not count as cleaning. And could do more damage than good.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My unit is 220v single phase ----the wiring in the wall is one black, red, white and a ground wire ----what is the proper connection to the outlet

The black is a 110 "leg" the red is a 110 "leg" the green is ground and the white is neutral. Not sure of what type receptacle you have but the black and red are
the hots and the white is connected to the neutral and the green is connected to the
green screw or terminal or wire that may be attached to the box itself.

The receptacle should be marked "Hot" or ACTIF on the hot terminals or identified
by reddish colored or gold screws. The neutral should be a silver screw. Make sure
power is off at the panel and check with a meter or tester before proceeding.
If you have any doubts, please contact a licensed electrician to prevent damage.

Leaking inside. Fedders A3X05F2A-J Unit is sloped away from house. Have sprayed coils. Doesn't seem to be drain hole at back of unit

Mellisia, the problem very well may be, that the drain pan hole under the unit, on the outside may be clogged. When that happens, water backs up and leaks out the front of the unit.The drain hole should be near one of the corners of the drain pan. And with Fedders, it may be on the edge/lip of the drain pan. The clog, may appear to be part of the drain pan and that's why you haven't noticed it.

Inspect the drain pan closely. If you can't find it. You can create one, by CAREFULLY drilling a hole at one of the corners of the drain pan. It doesn't have to be a large hole 1/8" to 1/4" should do.Be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged from the wall, before attempting this. Also, once the drill bit penetrates the drain pan STOP. You don''t want the drill bit to pierce the coils on the back of the unit.

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

on a capacitor with three diff conections
1 is for the condensor fan it will say fan on top of the capacitor usually 5mfd. just look at the wire colors. on the fan motor
2 is the common wire usualy white however not always.the top of capacitor will say C this will be tied into the ground usually like your house common.
3 this is for the compressor the top of the capacitor will say herm, trace the wire that is going inot the compressor.
i would just like to know why the wires are off. it could be the capacitor is bad or the compressor was not coming on and someone thought it was the capacitor.
