Russ here what probem are you having.

1 brown to each side of capacitor . You should have 1 brown with white stripe.

gotoman for ac :

Connect the two white wiresto that side of capacitor with brown/white. Tape off blue and yellow wires. Russ

If you have it wired correctly. 1 brown on one side of capacitor and 1 brown white on other with your white common wires attached it should start. If not replace capacitor. Russ

What Gotoman meant was the capacitor ONLY has the brown on one side and brown with stripe on the other side..the whits are removed and just connected together with a wire nut.

The only wires on the cap will be the 2 browns, one on each side.

motor is running from the way you said to hook up the wires don't smell no burning just waiting to see how long before it shut down from getting hot it sound pretty good so far
How is it running? Just a follow up. Russ
