I'm the guy with the "spanner nut" thread. Thought I'd start a new one and make the subject match the actual situation
Got everything back together (I think) except for a situation with the motor wiring.
In the videos it is shown that removal of the motor involves removing the motor harness plug and the wires connected to the capacitor. However, in my situation I also have 2 white wires that come out of the harness next to the wires that go to the capacitor. These wires were wire-nutted to 2 white wires that come out of the motor winding. I would just put them back together except that they are all white and I do not know which wire goes to which.
Is this the way these wires are supposed to be connected to the motor or was this a jery-rig job? I am enclosing some photos to illustrate. If you can make sense of this I will appreciate it.
I wonder if the wires originally went to the plug and the one coming out of the windings originally went to the terminal block on the motor.
