AC Blower wiring Help Help Help Plz Trane XE60
« on: May 30, 2010, 01:48:04 PM »
Hello,

I have a problem with my Furnace blower wiring. The old motor caught on fire and the specs burned so I took it to a distributor and they gave me a brand new unit that does not have all the wires the old one does.
I was trying to color match the new one to the old but these are the wires that I have:
Old Motor
brown-->capacitor
brown-->capacitor
blue-->purple on the furnace
black--> NOT USED
red-->red on the furnace
yellow--> NOT USED
white-->common--> white on the furnace
green-->chassis

New Motor:
brown-->cap
brown with white stripe-->cap
blue-->purple on the furnace
red-->red on the furnace
yellow--> NOT USED
black-->NOT USED
green-->chassis
MISSING WHITE

New motor is missing the white so I don't know what to do. please Help me I'm melting inside of my house at 83F

cheers,
Gil

Brown with white stripe is same as white/common. You should have got a new cap for that motor. Hook the brown wire on one side of the new cap and brown with white stripe to the other side of new cap then run a jumper from the brown with white stripe to common. That will feed common to the motor. If you are uncomfortable with it get a pro out there or take pictures of your setup, so we can see what you have. I am old school and I used to sell motors for a living. Brown with white stripe is the same as common.

Check the new motor's voltage rating. Usually no white wire 220 volts.
