Alright. I got 2 issues. I disassembled the motor because I was going to bring the housing inside, but instead decided to just bring in the switch. So, now that it’s reassembled here are my problems.

1) Did I do the ground correctly?
2) I only used 4 screws, where do the others go?

1)
Picture A and Picture B – Original before disassembly to orient
Picture C and Picture D – What do I do with the Yellow Box Ground wire? When I went to reassemble, the green wire was attached to nothing. I know the Red Wire from the Power Cord is going to get screwed against the black back plate, but does the Green one also get screwed to the backplate front and back?

Picture E and F – What I envision as correct. Loose green wire is screwed in front with the power ground, then on the back it is screwed in. Not sure how this ground works but it seems like it should be correct.

2) I used 4 screws, the ones for the holes shown in blue in pictures E and F, but there are 2 more holes that are colored white in that picture and I have like 4 screws remaining. Not sure where they go, any ideas.?

Green wires always indicate chassis ground. I would not attach any other color wire to the back plate.

So green wire to the backplate is ok. Just not any other color right?

So, the reason I have this question is not because I don’t know what the green wire is, it’s because I have no idea how it is grounding.

Is it grounding the motor to the ground wire in the electrical power cord and using that ground? Because my motor doesnt have a ground to the ground

I probably didnt pose my question accurately :)

Have your say...
