Gene - I will check the windings and the solid pack switch. Thanks for that.
The on/off switch is new; just installed it and it works exactly like the switch that I removed. In order for it to compact you must hold the switch; if you release it the power goes off, the plunger stops, and the next time you turn the switch you find that the motor direction has reversed. So I am not quite sure what to do. PS - top limit directional switch is new too.
