Most motors come with clear instructions or a wiring diagram on the side, however, some people still struggle with the wiring part of the motor to the capacitor. It is important to get it right to prevent problems including burning up the new motor or even causing a dead short in the wiring and melting the wire. A PSC motor will run without a capacitor however it will run at higher temperatures pulling more amperage than design. Here we will illustrate the proper wiring for a motor to a run capacitor. The above illustration does not cover every single type of motor wiring available on the market. As always, we recommend you thoroughly read the instructions that come with the new motor or capacitor to make sure you get it right. Get as much information as possible especially if you have never done it before.
