Emerson Motor Pdf


I have an Emerson Motor K55HXLGG-3702 Pt. No#51-19069-02. 1/2 Hp 115v. 60Hz 9.6Amp 1Ph 1075/4Spd 7.5Mfd 370v Cap. Came out of an Elc. Furn. Kept it as a spare, has no Digm plate. When un wired it, I wrote on it White Common, Black Hi, Blue Med, Yellow Med/Low, Red Low andBrown Capacitor. It only has 1 (one) Brown Wire. I thought that the other line to the Cap went to a relay that triped the Cap when the Blower started. I can't find anything about it from the Emerson sight, it just gives me the Replacement motor specs which has 2 (two) Broen Cap wires.

I read on a Form on Yahoo that 1 person was running it with the Yellow as the second Cap lead. I ask this because I had a replacement for my Trane XL1000 and a friends went out and I gave hime my replacement by mistake and now I have to use this one. Can anyone help me here? Thank you

The white goes to the opposite side of the cap from the brown.And then a wire from the common of teh furnace goes to the same terminal as the white wire.

Some 240 volt motors use Yellow as the common. Your 120 volt doesn't.

Well I was hopeing that someone would know how to wire up the Capacitor, I belive that it's a Start/Run Capacitor not just a Start Capacitor.

Its just a RUN cap, its not a start and run cap. They don't make such a thing.

OK so from what I'm understanding here is this. If I wanted to run it on High I would put the Hot Led on the Black, Then the Brown would go on 1 side of the Capacitor and the White and the Common go on the other side of the Capacitor. Is this correct, because after i posted this I did a Google search and 1 form said to put the white and the common on the other side of the Cap.

I have one of these fans as well but I want to use it as a floor fan in my barn. Has anyone wired this up as a multi-speed fan? If so, how?

Thanks

You could use a 4 pole rotary switch.

Should be able to find them for sell online. or possibly at your local electrical supply house, or farmers hardware store.
