New condenser fan motor wiring
Asked May 29, 2007, 11:13 PM
We just installed a new condenser fan motor (A.O. Smith OYK1028) and are feeling a bit lost with finishing up with the wiring. Both the old and the new motors (this is an OEM replacement) have three wires: purple, brown, and black. We did not remove the old motor, so we did not see how the wires were connected to the capacitors/system.
This is a split system and there are two capacitors, both of which are good. It also seems that the wiring diagram that came on the motor is at odds with the wiring diagram that belongs with the outdoor unit. I have included pictures of what we have. Any help would be appreciated.
