fan spinning wrong way
emerson k55hxweg-624 motor on heat pump spinning wrong way. Has two wires out the top of vent area which are orange and yellow which are connected to orange and yellow wire that run back into motor. Then 4 wires from motor running to condenser that at white, black, brown, brown/white. Brown and brown/white put into plugs in condenser area. white wire from motor connects to black wire and black wire connects of cream colored wire in condenser area.

Is this a new motor? Or has it been in for a while and was spinning the correct way?

If new, the wires at the top(orange and yellow) are the direction wires, just reverse them. If its an existing motor, the run cap may be bad and needs replaced.

I just moved into the house. The fan blade looks brand new. The orange wire coming out of the top vent connects to orange as does the yellow to the yellow and directly back into motor. So swap yellow to orange?

Thanks for the reply. I really appreciate it.

Yep swap them to the different color.
