wiring a/c capacitor

My a/c fan stopped turning last night so I took capacitor off to get a new one. my question is there were two red wires and an orange wire all hooked to the herm and a blue one hooked to the com and nothing to the fan. When hooking up the new one which wire should hook to fan?

Look around for the schematic. It will most likely be on the inside of the panel you pulled to get at the cap. It will direct you in which wire goes where.

you're mistaken. blue is most likely herm, one brown to fan and three to common. take a pic of old and new caps and post them.
