Problem with Jenn-Air dryer replacement
« on: March 16, 2016, 08:57:21 AM »
Hello

Kind of at my wits' end here, and wondered if you guys would be able to help me out. I'm working on a pretty basic Jenn-Air electric dryer (Model no. JDE1000W), trying to swap out the faulty original motor with a replacement (Part no. W10410996). The two motors have different switch connects and I had to do a little bit of rewiring, guided by a handy table in the instructions that came with the motor.

Now, for the problem. The table in the instructions covers five different wires that you have to swap over to specific terminals on the new motor but I've got a sixth. There's a white and red wire coming off the original motor that feeds into the top terminal of a thermostat (Part no. 31001192) mounted on the blower wheel housing. On the original motor's side, that wire is hooked into an unlabeled terminal behind terminal no. 3.

I've attached a picture of the wire hooked onto its original terminal. Hoping that helps.

The instructions that came with the motor make no mention of the wire, and my thorough Googlings have uncovered nothing.

PLEASE HELP!

Here is a wiring diagram,but don't see that red and white wire on it, but in the picture i see the number 3 on the wire would think it goes with the same wire that was on that same terminal as it is the share the same contact on that old motor.

Terminals 3 and 4 are for the motor cent. switch as read on the diagram.And the red wire on the diagram goes to that thermostat by the blower.
