To replace the motor, reverse the above procedure:
  • Replaces the capacitor first since its screw has poor access once the motor is in place.
  • Be sure the fusible link's retaining screw is tight before placing the motor on the frame.
  • Take care not to pinch any wires and be sure that top heating element's wire is routed properly as the motor is moved into place.
  • When replacing the heating element's connector you may need to squeeze the connector as secure fit is very important!
  • Loosely install the four screws before tightening. Be aware that the four screw securing the motor to the frame are the only screws which use lockwashers.
  • Finally, after connecting the motor's wires on the main circuit board, secure them with a tie wrap inside the spilt protective sleeve. This is to keep them from rubbing on the frame.
