  That does not have the same motor switch as your model.

If I check AC Voltage and Current Draw on the Wire Harness Motor Connector, is the power first sent to the BK & YL Wire (Start) then power sent to the RD & BR Wire (Run)?

  Power is applied simultaneously and continuously. As soon as the motor comes up to speed, the start circuit is opened via an internal contact in the motor switch activated by a centrifugal mechanism in the motor. This centrifugal mechanism also operates another set of contacts in that switch for slow speed operation. The motor always starts in high speed regardless of user setting but if slow speed has been selected, it will switch to slow speed when the motor gets going.

Eric,

I'll review the Wiring Diagram to help with troubleshooting power going to the motor, speed switch and timer.
I'll update this post when it's repaired.
Thank You!
