Damper motor has loose wires how to access?
 
I have two zones connected to one heat pump. The upstairs damper motor has loose wires. If I jiggle the two red wires on the motor it will begin to spin, but I have to climb into the attic and do this about once a day. I can't see an obvious way to remove the small housing from the motor to access where the wires seem to be loose. Any help? :huh: The photos below are of the motor with the loose wires and the label on the main damper unit:

might consider removing the motor off the damper or the entire damper housing and instasll a round piece till you can replace/repair it.that motor is not servicable with the wires going right to the windings...might be able to pop the cap on it down on a bench
