    New draco motor install

    Hello

    Got a new replacement draco motor but it only has two wires red and black.
    The instructions say bypass the circuit board straight into the numbered plastic bit but there's already two wires black and red from the circuit board.
    Any help please

    Have a look at the instructions again and the electric box. I scratched my head on that too when I did mine very recently. I’ll go and have a look now and post a photo in a bit…

    It sounds like you're dealing with a replacement motor for a specific device or appliance, and you're trying to connect it correctly. When working with electrical components, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and ensure safety. Here are some general steps that might help you with the motor replacement:


    1. Turn Off the Power: Before doing any work on electrical components, make sure the power source is turned off. This is crucial for your safety.


    2. *Identify the Original Wiring: Take note of how the original motor was wired. You mentioned there were already two wires (black and red) coming from the circuit board. These wires likely connect to the old motor.


    3. Check the Replacement Motor: Confirm that the new replacement motor has only two wires (red and black). This is not uncommon, as many motors have only two power wires.


    4. Wire the Replacement Motor: If the new motor has only two wires, you will typically connect them to the power source wires from the circuit board. In your case, it seems that the red wire from the replacement motor should be connected to the red wire from the circuit board, and the black wire from the replacement motor should be connected to the black wire from the circuit board.


    5. Secure the Connections: Use appropriate electrical connectors or wire nuts to securely connect the wires. Make sure there is no exposed wire or loose connections.


    6. Test the Motor: After making the connections, turn on the power source and test the motor to ensure it functions correctly.


    7. Follow Manufacturer Instructions: If there are specific instructions provided with the replacement motor that differ from these general steps, it's essential to follow them carefully.


    If you're unsure about any step or if you encounter any difficulties during the process, it's strongly recommended to seek the assistance of a qualified electrician or technician who can ensure the proper installation and safety of the motor. Electrical work can be hazardous if not done correctly, so safety should always be a top https://zumbaliciouscrew.com/en/zumba-for-beginners/priority.

    Odd this has come up, was recently in a discussion with the local dealer regarding Draco at the weekend.
    I have a new Draco motor on stand by, bought about a year ago.
    Iíve been advised it replaces the digital motor that had a circuit board to run it. There has been an issue with the motor, long story though.
    is your motor a recent purchase, there has been an issue with them and it can upset the Draco Controller, it is wired in with the two wires as described, you may end up having to connect the two wires to the solenoid so the drum motor gets its power when the solenoid opens to do a clean.

    Now that is really interesting - the other day I witnessed the drum turning but the water didn’t wash. As per my original post my system had gone into fault and stopped working. I wonder if this is the reason why ie the drum isn’t being cleaned even though it’s turning.

    im becoming more sure about getting rid of the drum altogether.
