Question about Amana 30 in. ACC3660AS Gas Cooktop
From the capacitor there is a black wire and brown wire that I assume are speed control wires.
The motor has a yellow/green wire (ground I think) a black wire (hot) a blue wire and a brown wire.
From the power source there is a green wire, white wire and black wire.
I have figured out the brown of the capacitor goes to the brown of the motor, the green/yellow wires connect together. Now I have the blue wire, and black wire, of the motor and the black wire and white wire of the power source. Does the black from the capacitor connect with the black of the motor and the black of the power source? That leaves the white in the power source and the blue from the motor. Do they connect?
A capacitor is typically inline with your power source and stores a large amount of power to supply bursts of power when heavy draws occur. it sits between the source and the motor so you should have the (source - capcitor - motor) hot wires all conecting at the same place. The other wire on the capacitor should be the ground (if they have +/- markings use the negative as the ground).
