Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a Carrier 8000 weathermaker. Recently the blower motor began to run progressively slower and finally just bogged down. I replaced the motor, but the replacement motor has three speeds (red, blue and black wires) whereas the old motor had four (red, blue, black and yellow). Initially I hooked the new motor wires up to the circuit board the same way the old ones were, leaving an open spot where the old yellow wire was. New motor works, but at lower speeds, pushing less cool air. We liv


Answers :

Found system was slowly loosing coolant through a variety of miniscule leaks in rusting part of condenser. Apparently coolant level had dropped sufficiently in the blower repair interval to where the system no longer functioned with adequate efficiency. Bottom line - low coolant level as is the first suggestion in most related ac repair forum sites. I'm buying a Trane, this system is no longer economically feasible to maintain.

Where do the 3 wires from the blower motor connect to on the control board for high speed use in the summer time? Black, Blue, and the Red one? The white is a no brainer. I can go to M1, cool, and heat. Ruud, lateral in the attic. UGPJ-10EBRJR. I have blue on M1, Black on cool, Red on heat. Does that speed take air across the evaporator the quickest? New motor ha same specs as old; 3/4 hp, 9.4 amps, same frame...matches up perfectly to the old. I'm freezing up.


Hello, the black wire is your high sped motor tap and it should be on cool as you have it. Blue is med-hi and red is your low speed motor tap. You have it wired correctly. Now the freezing can be caused by 2 things, low airflow or a low refrigerant ... Air Conditioners

Need to change a broken blower motor in RUUD central air unit. Old central air blower motor (GE electric) was connected with brown and orange wire to 15 MHD capacitor.

I am installing a Mars 1/3 hp fan motor. It has a black wire,red wire, blue wire, yellow wire and (2) brown wire that go to a capacitor.

It ran fine for 5 min then it thid my breaker in bresker box???? If the blue was not common how could the motor run at all??


Hello, Typically your common wire will be white, high speed- black, medium speed- yellow, medium low-blue, red- low. The motor could still run for a short time if it was wired wrong but will either trip a breaker or go off on it;s overload when it's ... Air Conditioners

I am replacing the a/c blower motor and capacitor. The old motor has 1 brown wire to the capacitor, 1 yellow wire to the capacitor (the yellow then loops from the capacitor over to the wiring panel), 1 green wire to ground, and a black wire that comes from the wiring harness from the wiring panel. The black wire is plugged into a small white box on the side of the motor that has a port with three places to plug in wires. These are labeled black, red, and blue, but only the black is there, no red

5 ton carrier. we changed the condenser motor and marked where the wires connected. Old motor had yellow and brown to capacitor. New motor has an extra brown wire with white stripe... I connected it the same way as the old one without using the extra wire.... didn't work. Advise how to connect the new 5 wire motor... red and black wires I'm confident are connected correctly.


The best way to wire that motor is to connect a separate capacitor to it. The brown and brown w/white stripe go to the capacitor. The black and red wires go to the contactor. ... Air Conditioners

The Hampton Bay has a push in wiring diagram for 3 wires, Green, White (Red or Black). On my old fan the red wire was for the light switch and the black wire was for the fan motor switch. What do I do to keep the light on one switch and the fan on the other?


The green wire is ground, the white is neutral, and the black it hot. I really do not understand the question, as the pull chain for the light switch is black and usually there is like blue wire for the lighting kit( which is marked light) as the lig ... Air Conditioners
