NOTE: The 32LT900301 Motormaster I device is rated at 8 amps, and the 32LT900611
Motormaster I device is rated at 4 amps.

GENERAL
Motormaster I solid-state head pressure control regulates
fan speed. A temperature sensor, mounted on a return bend of
the condenser (outdoor) coil, activates the device. The Motormaster I controller controls the speed of approved condenser
(outdoor) fan motors in order to maintain a constant head pressure in the condenser (outdoor) coil. When properly installed,
the control will maintain the appropriate head pressure at low
ambient temperatures down to –20 F. Usage is shown in
Table 1.

1. Disconnect power to the unit.
2. Disconnect condenser (outdoor) fan motor (OFM) wires
at the contactor and capacitor. Note position of fan blades
in relation to fan orifice.
NOTE: 38ARD012, 38ARQ008-012, 38ARS008-12,
and 38ARZ007-012 units require 2 OFMs.
3. Remove OFM(s) from the unit (except 38AKS013-024,
38ARD014-024, and 38AQS012-016 units with voltages
220-3-50, 208/230-3-60, 400-3-50, and 460-3-60).
4. Remove fan blade(s) from motor(s).
5. Mount Motormaster I controller on the unit. See Fig. 1.
The controller must be mounted vertically with leads at
the bottom. Using the template supplied with the controller, drill 4 mounting holes. To ensure electrical ground,
insert star lockwashers (supplied with the controller) under the heads of the sheet metal screws.
For 38ARD,ARQ,ARZ007-012 units, a field-fabricated
mounting bracket is required (2 for 38ARD012 units).
See Fig. 2. The bracket is mounted under the unit control
box. Mounting holes are provided in the unit basepan.

Sensor assembly is delicate. Handle with care.
7. Replace the OFM(s), if required, with the motor(s) shown
in Table 1. Rewire the motor connections as shown in
Fig. 8-21. Two wirenuts are included in package, if needed.
NOTE: A capacitor is needed on 48/50HJ006 and
50HJQ006 single-phase units; 48/50TF,TJ004-006 units;
and 50TJQ004-006 units.
On single-phase 48/50HJ006 and 50HJQ006 units, use the
capacitor (HC91CA010) as an additional capacitor in parallel. Use the capacitor strap to hold the capacitor in place.
On single-phase and 3-phase 50TFQ,TJQ004-006 and
48/50TF,TM,TJ004-006 units, replace the capacitor with

a field-supplied capacitor (HC98KA048, HC91CA010
respectively). Use the capacitor strap to hold the capacitor
in place.
Coil up all excess wire and secure it next to the controller.
Winter start control is required on all units except
condensing unit heat pumps. On units equipped with a
low-pressure switch on the suction line, disconnect
low-pressure switch and replace it with Carrier part
no. HK02ZB038. Locate the new switch on the access
port located on the liquid line (small rooftop units only).
Wind baffles are required to prevent wind cross currents
from causing abnormally low condensing temperatures.
Fabricate sheet metal baffles as shown in Fig. 22-25. Use
20-gage sheet metal.
Re-install fan blade. Ensure that fan blade is properly located in the orifice. Refer to the base unit installation instructions for further details.
Reconnect power to the unit.
