    i am confuse with my previous and to my new capacitor wire connection i don't which polarity is the positive and negative terminal.
    the first image was the broken capacitor yellow on the left side and there is 3 wires on the right 2(blacks) and 1(red)
    i knew in common schematic red wire is the positive and black is the negative, why this 3 wires joined together in
    single polarity? and the yellow is it also positive wire?

    There is no such thing as positive and negative wire with AC.
    Just connect the new capacitor as the old one was connected. The multiple wires may be due to connecting more than one winding in the motor.
