Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner
I am replacing an older Ge motor (5kpg39fg) three wire motor...
New Dayton motor (4m205g) four wire (plus ground) motor...
I am using the optional three wire installation as depicted on the motor frame.
They use a term called "insulate" that I have not seen before
I connected it up per the three wire diagram and the CB blew immediately. I did not have the motor frame grounded at the time... could this be the problem?
Anyone familiar with this replacement? I can't seem to locate an actual diagram for the motor so I can see what is going on inside and make my choice on how to wire. Need some help. Going to hit 100+ tomorrow and need to get this thing running.

The fan motor is held in place with screws
and possibly a mounting bracket. Remove the bracket and the
screws and pull the motor back away from the housing.
The fan motor is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the motor before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip-on connectors or a plug. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Remove the fan blade from the old motor and install it onto the new motor. Connect the wires to the new motor and install the motor into the bracket or housing. Make certain that all of the screws are tightened securely.
Replace the access cover (if any) and plug in the refrigerator.
