Ok guys..........I found the capacitor to be bad.......melted and bubbly. I ordered one and now I'm gonna play the waiting game. 45$ Applianceman called it. I hope that fixes it.

 

 On a side note........I'm gonna replace the cap. and see if it works. You think that the actuator was bad?........I'm thinking about trying the old one again after I get the cap. in. Maybe get my 35$ back. Would that be a bad idea?

 

Maybe they go hand in hand in failing. I don't know.

 

 Until the meantime, THANKS for all the help guys. I couldn't of done it without your help and that "TECH SHEET". I'll update when it arrives.

Wow.......I feel about 1" tall right now "Curjones". It was right where you said it was sealed in a clear zipper bag. The whole time I was thinking it was in behind the main controls. I even looked around in there and just did not see it. Thanks though. Will have it for future fixes.

 

 Must be this Busch beer. :wink:

If you read my post, my friend I struggled at first with getting the lid top opened, lol, I could see the tech sheet inside but had to squeeze my hand in there to get it out..

 

I'm learning too here.  I come up with questions as I think.

 

The capacitor blew, in the old style motor the capacitor was dropped out of the circuit by a motor switch, capacitor only used to start the motor.

 

Need to research how the capacitor is dropped out of circuit, if its not dropped out, it will heat up capacitor and even the motor, it will cause the motor to fail.

 

There are capacitors that are run/start capicitors, they stay in the circuit.  I'm not looking at the print, just passing through the site today for a moment.

 

If the control board now has some solid state circuit on it that drops out the capacitor,  you have found the result, not the cause.  In troubleshooting we usally find the result, and bang our heads looking for the exact cause.

While you wait.  do a motor check, and a mode shifter check.

 

Maybe someone knows how the capacitor is now dropped out of start circuit.

Just change the capacitor and call it good. This is actually a common problem. I wouldn't worry about the motor test. Not sure why it blows but all the ones I have changed, the motor has been fine and all other components are good as well.
