SOURCE: how to wire motor to dual run capacitor

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.

SOURCE: wiring diagram for electricmotor with capacitor

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.

On most motors the wires with the tabs are connected to the capacitor (usually brown). White wire is neutral and color wires are speeds.

My Emerson model k55hxjcp-2593 electric fan motor has 5 wires connecting to the motor. The replacement motor only has 4 wires. I need to know how to connect the new motor seeing there is only 4 wires

the motor should have wireing diagram on side. i would expect 2 of the wires go to a run capacitor & the other 2 are your 110 or 220 depending on unit need.

If you're running 3 phase, swap 2 infeed wires. If you're running single phase, look in the wiring diagram in the motor head for the wires to move.

The WEG 7.5 hp motors often blow the start capacitors. The box on top of the motor has 4 caps in it. 2 start and 2 run caps. Mark the cap wiring or make you a diagram to have at replacement time. Remove one or both of the caps. It is easier to remove two wires and pull the start caps out as a set. They are the black, large ones. I think they are 286 Micro farad caps. To get identical caps you may have to order from IR. If you can find a WEG motor shop they may have them. I usually go to grainger or my local motor shop to purchase. The ones here will be larger in size but can be fitted into the box on the motor. Also inspect the wiring in the box. I have found some wires with insulation gone. This may have caused your problem or a problem latter down the road.

Old capassitor has 3 prongs new capassitor has 2 prongs

The old motor relied on a leg off of the ol cap marked FAN. No need to bother with it anymore because the new motor probably has a different cap rating therefore it needs its own wittle capacitor. Cute ain't it? That new motor will probably have a common wire to connect to that Old cap at the C mark on it though. It will have 2 brown wires to connect to that new cap for it. (insulate that cute little cap to prevent any shocktastrophies) The black wire will of couse go to wher the old one did on the contactor. Read a little ditty I affectionatly wrote for further info entitled 'old motor had 3 wires new motor has 4 WTF"

Older sears bench grinder wont run 1/3 hp model 397 19581

Hi again, OK, Well since I don't have a wiring diagram and the colors don't help. I am also going to assume it is 110VAC. The larger wires are probably the run or primary, it you remember which ones were connected it will help with polarizing. ( getting it to run in the right direction as well as the start and primary working together). You can use the two terminal switch but you should use a three wire cord. Use the switch to break the neutral and ground the case. The connections should be as follows: Connection 1, would have one of the primaries and one of the starts to neutral. Connection 2, the other start to the relay. Connection 3, the coil side of the relay to the remaining primary. ( if the relay has two connections on one end and one on the other it would be the single) Connection 4, the 3rd position on the relay to hot. That is how a split phase is wired. You may find a simple wiring diagram on the net if you type split phase motor wiring diagram. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!
