I had a condensor with a shorted compressor today that a co-worker had replaced the fan motor 3 weeks ago. While checking it I noticed he had mis-wired it but it ran for 3 weeks! There was a potential relay, start capacitor, dual capacitor, and a contactor. He had the capacitor wire from the fan on the "fan" terminal of the dual cap but he had switched the "common" wire and the "herm" wires. The wire that goes to the potential relay and the wire that goes to the compressor were on the "common" terminal. The wire that goes to the contactor was on "herm".
How did this work for 3 weeks?
Do you think it contributed to the compressor failure?"
