    I have a 1/2 hp ac motor i took out of a window ac unit that i am wanting to put on a squirrel cage fan. It is 220 v 4speed. The capacitor that came out of the unit is a dual capacitor labled fan/c/herm. I know that the herm is for the condenser side of it, so i need not worry about it. I know that the brown wire from the motor goes to fan on the capacitor. The question i have is after doing a little research everyone says that the white wire off the motor should go to the c on the capacitor, but it has to be hooked up to one leg of the 220 so im not understanding how to go about doing it. Help Please!
