A/C Gurus, I need some help
My A/C hasn't worked yet this year and I did some trouble shooting and determined that my condenser fan motor was bad. I tested the capacitor and it was fine, the contactor seems to be okay as well.
I had a guy at work order me a motor and I picked it up today. here is my problem:
Old fan has 3 wires Brown, Black, and Yellow.
Yellow went to one side of contactor
Black went to other side of contactor
Brown went to Fan on capacitor
New motor has 5 wires
Capacitor is dual run with a jumper from the yellow on the contactor to the common on the capacitor
Blue wire going to Herm (compressor)
Brown wire going to fan
The motor instructions say Orange and Black to line which I interpret as each terminal on contactor
Purple going to capacitor and the diagram shows another line off capacitor going to orange
Brown and Yellow together
Purple and brown can be switched to change fan directions
I am noticing the capacitor on the diagram only has 2 terminals so I believe I need to buy a single run capacitor for this to work.
Sorry for the story but it is supposed to be hot this weekend and I would like to get this working.
