Just turn the capacitor around. If that doesnt work, just yell real loudly, "Hey blower, turn around". Then say, "Bite Me". Bubba

Perry had written this in response to http://www.thestuccocompany.com/hvac/blower-motor-running-backwards-36529-.htm : You have the polarity wrong which means you didnt put the wires on it right. You have Hot and common backwards.

Evidently they mistakenly sold you a sucker instead of a blower, reversing the polarity will probably fix that. It's a Comfort Taker... often sold to suckers, (sometimes given at a discount to blowers)

How many wires are there into the motor?
If there are just four then connect the capacitor accross the other two wires which are right now propably commoned up. Then common the two that were connected across the capacitor.
The capacitor must be in series with the highest resistance winding.
