My dad, a refrigeration mechanic, bought a Copeland

Customer Question

My dad, a refrigeration mechanic, bought a Copeland compressor (from Emerson) and cannot find a wiring diagram in the box. We tried to look for it via Emerson's website but hit a dead end. Could you please give us specific wiring instuctions to confirm Dad's wiring? Dad is old school and needs feedback before turning the compressor on to test it...Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

The wire colors on the diagram don't correspond with the actual wire; the diagram helps but it's confusing...According to Dad the wires are black, gray and a kind of white.

Cancel the phone call; we found a local a/c mechanic who will help us...If that mechanic & dad hit a snag, can I still email you? Thanks so much for your help.
