The ECM Motor Tester is designed to isolate the ECM blower
motor and help the technician determine if the blower motor is
defective. The ECM Motor Tester can only be used to test the
variable speed ECM 2.0 and 2.3 blower motors on thermostatically
controlled (T- STAT) systems and ECM 3.0 blower motors on
serial communicating systems. This tester cannot be used on ECM
2.5 blower motors. This includes residential fan coils, small
packaged products, some models of 80% non- condensing furnaces
and 90% condensing furnaces.
The ECM Motor Tester contains alligator clips to connect to
24VAC from the circuit board of the unit being tested.
NOTE: This tester will rotate the motor a portion of the expected
airflow. This is not intended to replace the functionality of the
control board.

2. Unplug the 16- pin connector for ECM 2.0 and 2.3 motors
or the 4- pin connector for ECM 3.0 motors. Leave the
5- pin high voltage plug connected at the ECM blower motor. Plug the 16- pin connector for ECM 2.0 and 2.3 motors
or the 4- pin connector for ECM 3.0 motors from the ECM
Tester, shown in Fig. 1, to the ECM motor.
3. Attach the RED lead of the tester to the R terminal on the
unit control board and the BLACK wire to the C terminal
on the unit control board. The ECM 3.0 may require the use
of additional alligator clips or piggy- back connectors.
4. Turn on power to the unit. The green POWER LED found
in the switch should turn on.
