    need to trace back to find what is bad, its not the blower motor, follow the wiring schematic, if your not a tech, call one.

    If disconnecting the green ground wire stops the motor, you are completely wired wrong. Call a pro and save a life.

    If you can't figure out wiring a blower motor, you better call a real tech.

    Big Mike ? The green is ground ? Tim Allen said the sun is yellow and heats the ground, therefor the yellow is ground.....or does that just apply to dishwashers ? JK.. like the others have said... any service call $ would be cheaper than the ER... or worse.

    First you have to understand the sequence of operation. Then you have to check if the motor is getting the correct amount of power to run . Now that you didn't do either you have to ask yourself who should pay for the motor and brackets and should I call someone who has already paid for the education.
