The easiest way to do it is to get a capacitor just for the fan motor (in the motor tag you can read what size cap. you need , maybe 5uf or 7.5 uf) and put the two brown wires on each side of the capacitor and the lines (probably white and black) to the contactor.

Go to the website for the motor manufacturer- it will show how these capacitors are to be wired. You'll need the motor model number.

I do not have a diagram for you, but depending on the motor, I can tell you a couple of things. 1. All capacitors are wired in series with the start winding. Most multi-speed motors, that require capacitors, have two brown leads, along with the motor winding leads. If this is the scenario, then just connect line power to neutral and the speed you wish to use, and connect the two brown leads, one to each side of the capacitor. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thankyou for your assistance,very helpful."
On most motors the wires with the tabs are connected to the capacitor (usually brown). White wire is neutral and color wires are speeds.
