In this post, I am writing about the 5 wire ceiling fan capacitor wiring diagram, in the last post I have written about the 3 wire capacitor diagram which we use for fans and can regulate speed by using a speed-controlling switch. Now in this, you will learn about the ceiling fan 5 wire capacitor and its diagram.
5 Wire Ceiling Fan Capacitor Wiring Diagram
In the ceiling fan, we use the 5-wire capacitor for speeds, low Med and High speed. On this type of capacitor, we have five wires, in which two is common and 3 other for different value capacitance microfarad.
In the below diagram I showed a 5 wire fan motor capacitor with it’s capacitor diagram.
In the above diagram, I have shown an image of a fan motor capacitor which CBB61 and it’s a 5-wire capacitor, the two gray wires are common red is 4.5 µF 250V and Brown is 6 µF 250 Volts and Purple is 5 microfarad and 250 V.
Ceiling Fan 5 wire Capacitor Working and instillation Diagram for Fan regulating Speed Low, Med, High
Mostly we use this type of capacitor for speeds, as I told you in my above words, so here is a diagram from which you can get an idea of using this capacitor. in the below diagram, I show how can we regulate the fan speed. Here I showed a diagram in which I have shown a ceiling fan’s main winding/running winding and auxiliary/starting winding with capacitor with speed controller/selector switch and one-way switch with low, med, and high speed.
In the above diagram, I show the AC supply and I connect the neutral wire to the motor winding (common winding point) and the phase (Hotwire) connect to the one-way switch and form switch connect to the motor main winding and capacitor all wires of capacitance which is 4.5 uF, 4 µF, and 6 microfarads. and you can see that the speed selector switch is in the low direction and when its switch moves on the 5 µF,” the ceiling fan will be on med speed, and on 6 microfarads the speed will be high. This is a basic diagram of 5 wire ceiling fan capacitor wiring diagram and it’s working.
