Ceiling Fan 3 Wire Capacitor Wiring Diagram

As you know we use single-phase types motors in ceiling fans and a ceiling fan required a capacitor to run. In-ceiling we use a capacitor, In which one type of capacitor has 3 wires. In this post, I am going to explain the ceiling fan 3 wire capacitor wiring diagram. This capacitor has 3 wires of which one is common for both and the other two for different value capacitance. This means that there are two capacitors instilled in this capacitor and both values are different from one another.

Ceiling Fan 3 Wire Capacitor Wiring Diagram

The 3 wire fan capacitor diagram is mostly available on capacitors but most people did not understood it. And he always tries to buy a 2-wire fan capacitor. But the 3-wire capacitor is better than 2 wire because we can use it for two different requirements.
In this capacitor one wire is common and between the common wire and 2nd wire, the capacitor is different than between the common and 3rd wire.
One thing more in some ceiling fans we use this type of capacitor for regulating speeds. I.e example” when the fan motor start at 1.5 µF the motor will be at low speed and when the capacitor is on 2.5 then the motor will be on med speed and when the ceiling fan motor run on both capacitor at the same time (1.5 + 2.5 = 4 µF) then the motor on high speed.  And as I told you in my above words we can use it for a fan motor which only required the 1.5 microfarad capacitor.
However ceiling fan 3 wire capacitor we use in the fan mostly for speeds. In the fan, we use a speed regulator switch form which we can regulate the speed using a capacitor.
We have 3 wires in the ceiling fan capacitor in which red is common and the other two are for different capacitors values.

First, I am gonna explain the 3 wire capacitor diagram and you can easily learn from the below three wire capacitor diagram.

As shown in the above ceiling 3 wire capacitor diagram red is common wire and yellow for 1.5 microfarad and Purple for 2.5 microfarad. However, IN SHA ALLAH in the further post, I will explain the fan 5 wire capacitor, regulating speed switch diagram, and replacement of the fan capacitor in the fan motor.
Now I hope you understood the ceiling fan 3 wire capacitor wiring diagram. Now if you have any questions or suggestions then post in the comments box below.
