LOOKS LIKE RED BLUE AND BLACK ARE THE SPEEDS, THE YELLOW WOULD BE THE LINE . I TESTED THE VOLTAGE ON THE HAVAC AND THERE IS 220 ACROSS THE ORANGE AND RED. WHEN I TEST ACROSS EITHER OF THESE AND BLACK BLUE OR YELLOW IT DOES NOT SHOW ANY VOLTAGE
SORRY THOSE COLORS ARE RED-L, BLACK H, BLUE MH, YELLOW ML, ORANGE C.

Ok are you still there?

Ok hook up yellow to orange,

Red to red,

black to black

2 browns to capacitor

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
WHAT ABOUT THE BLUE WIRE ON THE MOTOR

blue wire is for medium speed and will not be needed , put a lug nut on the end of it

How are you doing with that? Sorry it took so long, got tied up with another customer on the phone for an hour

So hows it doing? got it done?
