It is getting very hot down here in Florida. Your assistance in the matter of my capaicitor problem would be very much appreciated. The wiring diagram in the unit doesn't match the color of the leads going to the capacitor. The capacitor has three terminals(Fan, HRR and blank). I have an orange to the blank, a brown to the the fan and a darker brown to HRR. Do the brown leads need to be reversed?
The air coming out of the vents was hot. The air handler was working fine, but the compressor outside had a non-functioning fan. Took out the fan and had it tested(rated OK). The capacitor was rated as non-functioning during its test.
Reading your other post, it seems you reverted both wires. Since the wires are brown and dark brown.... just connect the brown wire coming from the fan to F on the capacitor, and the another brown is coming from the compressor on H on the capacitor.
My leads are orange, brown and light brown. The colors on the units wiring diagram are different, that why I am confused. Also, my markings on the wires came loose before I had a chance to replace the capacitor. Thats why I am confused. I am afraid that if I don't get the wires right, I might damage the compressor.
