    Want to Verify New Blower Motor Wire Placement on Rheem Control Board

    I am replacing the blower motor in my 14-year-old Rheem Furnace. The new OEM replacement motor has a yellow wire that the original motor did not have. I need help with the wire placement of all the wires (Black, Blue, Red, White, and Yellow) on my furnace's control board.

    When using a generic motor have to compare amperage not hp. Generic has to have the exact full load amps or more.

    The wires are just speeds. Unless you have cooling you are probably just using one speed with an old furnace
