    I believe the common for the capacitor connects to one leg of the 240 V contactor output (say, L1), which is where the motor *run* winding also connects.

    The "common" terminal on the motor...

    If you understand how one motor works, you understand how two motors work.

    Draw two separate circuits, one for the compressor motor, and one for the condenser fan motor.

    Notice how they're...

    One of the best books I can recommend is an older copy of "Trane Air Conditioning Manual". I'm talking like the 1950s versions. They're written much, much better than more modern stuff, and cover...

    I never thought about cleaning a blower wheel without taking the blower housing out & taking the motor off. I use a toothbrush & shop vac. It's a nasty job.
