Wiring up a compressor + start kit



Wiring up a compressor
If there is an identifying mark on one side of the capacitor such as a Dash, Red paint or arrow pointing one direction that will be the run side of the capacitor, if no marks you can use either side for start or run.
If you have three terminals on the capacitor you have a dual capacitor, (C = RUN compressor and fan) (HERM = compressor start) and (FAN is fan start wire).
The Start wire goes to one side of the run capacitor it will be the only wire on that side of the capacitor.
The Run wire goes to the terminal side (T2) of the contactor, it will have another
wire from that terminal to the run capacitor which is the opposite side of the start wire.
The Common wire will go to the other side of the contactor (T1).
Start Kit
Start from the capacitor to terminal #1 on start relay There should be another wire from
here to start on the compressor.
Common from contactor (T1) to terminal #5 on start relay. There should be a wire from this terminal to the Common terminal on the compressor.(there will not be a capacitor in this circuit)
Run from the other side of the contactor (T2) to the start capacitor and from the other
Side of the start capacitor to terminal #2 on the start relay. There should also be a wire from this
Terminal to Run on the compressor.

Where do I connect the two little wires from the thermostat to the compressor contactor.


The contactor should be the only part that your main voltage wires, from the house to the o.d. unit, connect. The control wires connect to the terminals that are opposite of the line voltage wires. If the line voltage wires(wires that come from the house & the wires that supply through the unit) connect on top and bottom, there should be a connection on the right(2 terminals) & on the left (2 terminals). Doesn't matter which control wire goes on what side. Google : 2pole condenser contactor, should give you a picture of the contactor. Don't forget to turn off the power first

Air compressor on Heil air conditioner is humming but not kicking in


Capacitor Failure Symptoms are sometime harder to identify without the right tools and expertise. Capacitors can be found in several different sizes and shapes. There may be one or multiple capacitors included in your ac with regards to the design. While the most popular capacitors are the types found on circuit boards, the ones most associated with air conditioning will be the bigger capacitors that assist start and run your motors. There are several motors present in an conditioner and heater systems:
  1. Compressor Motor Run Capacitor: Here is the most popular capacitor that fails. Most of the time these are duel capacitors, which means that there are 2 capacitors built into one. A duel capacitor will have three terminals on the top where a single capacitor will simply have two terminals on top.
  2. Outside Fan Motor Run Capacitor: That is the smaller capacitor found with or part of the Compressor Motor Capacitor. It helps start and run the outside fan that blows air through the outside coils.
  3. Indoor Blower Motor Run Capacitor: Similar to the outdoor fan motor capacitor, it is a small, single (two terminals) capacitor that will help start and run the indoor blower motor.
  4. Start Capacitor: Some models include an auxiliary start capacitor that helps jump start the motors. Most are found on the compressor. These are less common.

You may need to get that checked out.

I am replacing a intermatic t101r with a tightwatt timer. the t101r has 5 terminals wired, the tightwatt only has 4


Hello Barbara.
You dont have T101R timer. Because T101 has 3 terminals.
Remember any Intermatic timer can be replaced into the T101 enclosure.
First step, Identify your voltage.
Second step, identify if you are controlling a 2-speed pump.
Third step, identify the Intermatic timer by looking at clock motor and wiring.

T101R timer has 3 terminals, and has WG1570 120Volt clock motor.
T103R timer has 5 terminals and WH1570 120Volt clock motor
T104 timer and T106R timer have 5 terminals and WG1573 240Volt clock motor
Copy following link to help identify your specific wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Terminal A on Intermatic could be Neutral or Hot depending on what has been done to alter the timer.
Generally the tightwatt timer wires very similar to P1353 timer.

I have a Ruud Air Conditioner and need to install a new capacitor, but I forgot how the wires were on the old one. Can you help me in tellilng me which wire goes where.


There should be 3 terminals on the capacitor marked "C" "F" and "H".
A wire from the high voltage contactor goes to the "C".
Another wire from "C" goes to the compressor.
These wires are usually red.
The "F" terminal has a wire going to the fan,usually a brown wire.
The "H" has a wire going to the compressor,usually yellow.
There should be a wiring diagram on the control box cover identifying the terminals,colors and number of wires.

Compressor makes a buzing sound and then clicks off.


Change the start relay.

The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by a tension spring or with a retaining clip.
Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay , overload protector and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor. Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.
Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector for corrosion. If it is corroded it should be cleaned or replaced.
Reattach the wire to the new compressor relay and press the relay back onto the compressor terminals. Replace the terminal cover box and plug in the refrigerator.

The three prong relay connector on the compressor on my Haier compact does not have the common, start and run marked. how do I figure out which is common and run?


Tecumseh terminal pins always thought of
in the order: Common, Start, Run. To identify the
terminal pins, we read the order exactly as we would
read a book: That is, we start at the top left hand
corner and read across the first “line” from left to
right. We then drop down to the second line starting
at the left and read across. Some compressor models
have terminal pin identification embossed on the
protective terminal cover.
The common will go to the external overload protector. The run will be connected to the power side of the relay.
Hope this helps.

How do I wire a new condensor fan motor to the new capacitor? The old capacitor is longer and it has 3 terminals. the new capacitor is much smaller and oval. It has 2 terminals. the fan motor has 3 wires,...


Before attempting any of these recommendations, First disconnect all the power sources and check your wiring diagrams on the motor and condensing unit.
On the old capacitor if you look on the top near each of the three terminals. Are they marked, fan - C - herm? If they are that is a dual capacitor and that needs to stay because that is also your compressor capacitor.
The Red wire from the conductor is Run and it's connected to C on the old capacitor.
Follow the Yellow wire and see if it goes to the S or start terminal on the compressor, if it does then that is the Start wire for your compressor and it connects to herm on the capacitor.
For the fan motor a lot of times the wiring connections are printed on the motor label.
Check the label, Purple should be run and connect to C on the old capacitor.
Black should be Common and it connects to the opposite side of the contactor as the Red wire. If the Red wire connects to T1 then the Black wire connects to T2.
The Brown wire shoud be the start wire on the fan motor and it connects to the Fan terminal on the old capacitor.
Now if you want to use the new fan capacitor. Take the Purple wire from the motor and look for any marks (red paint or a dash) on or beside the terminals on the new capacitor. If there is an identifying mark then connect the Purple wire to that terminal, if no marks you can connect it to either terminal. Then you need a jumper wire from C on the old capacitor to the purple side of the new capacitor. Then take the brown wire and connect it to opposite terminal of the new capacitor.

I have a Trane XE1200 condensor for which I bought a replacement fan motor, same specs as the original G.E. motor. The original G.E. motor was wired to a dual capacitor, which is also wired to the...


OK, locate the terminals on the capacitor marked "HERM"(Compressor lead), "FAN", and "COM".(common)

HERM and COM remian as they are.

The wire going to "FAN" (usually brown) will be placed on either terminal of the new capacitor. (This is the ((usually brown)) wire comming off of the fan motor.) An additional wire needs to be run from the other terminal of the new capacitor to the "COM" on the old capacior.

What you are doing is bypassing the fan side of the old capacitor but still using the compressor side of the old Cap.

The fan should have a wiring diagram on it to help identify the wires if there is no brown wire. The other two wires will be identified on the wiring diagram as well, but one typically goes to the contactor and the other to the board.
