Hey Joe...THANK YOU as the part showed up in about 30 hours after I pressed send...WOW !

HOWEVER, as I feared the instruction sheet is missing one wire from the unit. The BLACK wire, thicker and from the 110 V plug wire itself is not mentioned at all in the instruction sheets ??? On the old switch, this wire was on the top connection of the White connection with the White wire being on the bottom. So the instruction sheet shows W goes to the W connection, my question is does the Black wire also go onto (top spot) of the W connection ? Also, FYI, the W wire is not long enough to reach the new spot on the other side of the new switch so you have to make a new W wire...just in case you have any input on things like the instruction sheet and this wire. Please confirm that the Black wire goes onto the same connection point as the W wire Joe....thanks, Frank

Frank, Let's try this, page 2 heading "4 Install new switch." of the instruction sheet, heading B. Connect motor leads to the new switch. This refers to the wires from the interior of the motor, and the terminals should be attached to the "lower" terminals of the new switch. Heading "C. Connect wire harness leads to the new switch" of course refers the the wire harness in the cabinet, and the terminals should be attached to the "upper" terminals of the new switch. The large "heavy guage black wire, should be the "neutral" leg of the power cord, and should attach the the upper W terminal of the new switch(pg.6 is the wiring diagram to refer to).
