I need to test my old door switch, and need to hook it up again. Unfortunately, I didn't pay attention when I unhooked it. Can someone who knows a little about wiring these things let me know which wire goes where? I have a black/red wire (with a plastic clip on the connector), a black wire, a blue/white wire (actually 2 wires to one connector), and a white wire. Based on the length of the wires, I believe that the black/red wire and the black wire go to the red box with the switch (which I believe is the wax motor), and the blue/white wire and the white wire go to what I believe is the solenoid. The solenoid (if that's what it is) has 2 connectors. One is marked 120v, and the other is 60Hz. 
 
There is also a wiring harness with 4 wires, but it is obvious where that goes.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Big thanks, Cactus Bob.  Unfortunately, I need a little more detail.  Although in other ways I'm pretty handy, electricity and I have never seen eye-to-eye. 

 

My guess is that the black/red wire with the plastic clip goes on the top connector of the wax motor.  That would leave the black wire (ground?) to connect with the lower (or side) connector (see picture 1 and 3).

 

As for the solenoid, which wire goes to the 120v connector, and which goes to the 60Hz connector?  

 

Sorry to ask you to type again.

doesn't matter
they're both AC ..
FYI with AC, black is "hot"
