    3-Wire Starting Capacitor Wiring

    Hi,

    I have an old pump motor that gives a humming noise but won't start. I took off the capacitor and after some time, ordered a new replacement. When I try to put it back on, I found there are three wires from the motor: red, black, and brown. Now I cannot recall how it was hooked up before.

    The motor runs one speed when I flip a switch. From a sticker on the motor, I can vaguely read: Century E plus pool pump duty, 1HP, part #8-132(?)??????

    I usually take a photo of everything I disassemble, but not this time. I guess I

    Thank you!
