Below is a picture of the motor, if you look at the wires you will see a round canister like object with 2 wires going to it, that would be the capacitor.

Why would a torpedo heater fan turn backwards? every time I start my all pro 115,000 heater the fan starts to spin counterclockwise and the heater wont ignite. But when manually spin the fan blade clo


If the fan has a 'run' capacitor, in rare cases, a faulty capacitor will cause a single phase motor to start in reverse. In most cases a faulty capacitor will cause the motor to only hummmm and not start or start slowly running the right direction then overheat and shut off.

See if there is a capacitor, change it first. If that doesn't fix it it sounds like its time for a new motor.

If you're troubleshooting HVAC electrical problems

230 volt single phase ac
The Common wire or circuit on an A/C or heat pump never has a run capacitor in that line.
The Run wire always has the run capacitor in that line or circuit.

115 volt ac
The Run or Hot wire has the run capacitor and the neutral wire does not.

So if you are tracing wires out in a circuit, if there's a run capacitor, it's the Run wire or Run circuit.
The Start wire always goes to the opposite side of the run capacitor than the Run wire and it is the only wire on that side of the capacitor.
The Run wire goes to the run capacitor, then goes to contactor, compressor, start capacitor or fan, so there's usually two wires on the Run side of the capacitor.

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.

My hot water tank won't start, i can hear humming sound from the blower, but blower doesn't run, ant it does no heat.


If the blower will not run, then the unit will not fire up due to a safety hazard. If it is a capacitor start motor, then you may have to replace the capacitor, otherwise you will have to install a new blower motor. Hope this helps

Heater blower switch only works in postions 3 and 4


When this happends, it usely is caused by a bad blower motor resister. I can't tell you if it is a seperate unit or if its built into the blower motor . If its a seperate unit it should be located close to the blower on the heater box, if its in the motor you will have to replace the motor.

R150B Kerosene Reddy Heater-


Neither of you state the model of heater that is giving you starting problems. many of the motors have an external starting capacitor (relay). If so, you may just need that part, if your heater is equipped with one. On the other hand, many have an internal capacitor , which is not servicable.
