My Bionaire fan died and instead of buying new one I decided to fix it. Took it apart trying to figure out it's circuits. Found the motor has three wires plus ground, also a capacitor. On circuit board it has three TRIAC's for it.
Can somebody tell me what kind of motor is it? I know three-phase motors which have three wires and obviously need three-phase power. I know one-phase motors that need a capacitor to run. This one is unknown to me.

In fan ,by using the capacitor there made a new phase to the winding by shifting the phase of the original phase with the capacitor.
the capacitor used to a 60 angle phase shift made

tha capacitor used to shift the signal and connected to the one of the winding serially

Thanks, but I figured out it has three wires because it has three speeds. As I said in my initial post I do know one-phase motors with capacitor.
