After replacing the directional switch I still have the same problem. Sometimes when I close the door the cycle starts automatically. Then when it gets to the top, it keeps going. Is this another switch iossue? Or Drive gear issue?

It sounds like the start switch may be the culprit.

After rereading your original post, I reconsidered my response. If it has been goiing on for a length of time, it coudn't hurt to inspect the gears and drive cams for damage.

The problem is more likely caused by the upper limit switch (or stop switch). It mey be loose, misaligned, or broken.

I went as far as to replace the centrifugal switch.... Now its worse. Starts EVERYTIME I shut the drawer.

I checked continuity on the start switch and it seems ok. Unless I did it wrong.

OK just got done checking everything. The only thing not coming out right is the Y wires from the upper limit and start when connecting to the black wire off the centrifugal switch. I get no reading yet the diagram says there should be a 3-5 ohms reading. So what does that tell me???????????

Since we already know your motor runs, it probably means there is a disconnected wire somewhere. (or you're taking your reading through an open switch).

Were you able to download the manual for your machine?

yes I have it right here. I have checked all the switches and wires. The yellow is the only ones not closed whereas the diagram shows there should be at least a reading. A yellow goes from solid pack button to the upper limit. The upper limit has a wire going from it to the temporary start switch. From there it goes to the centrifugl switch.

Ok Im second guessing myself here. I think I may have tested both yellows while they were disconnected simultaneously. Does that make a difference?
