    How to hook up blower motor?

    Hello

    I was wondering if someone here could explain to me how I to hook up my new (used) blower motor?
    Attached are some pictures of the control board and the wires coming from the blower:

    And the control board:

    It's a 220V motor.
    Could you tell by the color which one is which?

    Thanks for everybodys help in advance.

    I wasn't aware of this rule. Of course it's my own responsibility what I do or not do wit the unit.

    I asume it's a 220V 1 Phase. has a capacitor on the side.

    Site rules do prohibit us from giving diy.

    That being said, even if we where able to help there isn't enough info to go by to tell you how to hook it up anyhow. The colors don't necessarily mean anything, it all depends on what they are hooked to.

    WOW those are clean hands.
    It's not if your doing it right it's whether your doing the right thing that is important.

    In fact, "clean hands" are an old legal principle. And of course, we want no chance of legal problems here due to DIY work being done where someone could get hurt.
