Do you have continuity between Grey 51 and Red 31 with wires off and no power?

richard dicarlo:
grey51-red31 shows connectivity with the power plugged in but no connectivity with the power unplugged.

theoldstoveguy:
On the motor switch with no power and wires off? That is the motor overload protector. If it is no continuity, bad motor.

richard dicarlo:
first thanks for the help.
not exactly sure how to check the motor switch. I was suspecting the motor. 


second if that is the problem with both what would cause it?

theoldstoveguy:
On the motor look for the wires ( from the back of the machine) remove both wires and put meter on continuity (ohms) check between the grey and red on the switch, should read as a closed circuit. Is the meter you are using digital? If so put on 200k ohms and you should get 000 across the meter. (closed circuit no resistance)
