Replace goodman draft inducer
the draft inducer on my goodman furnace needs to be replaced. I have purchased a rotom replacement (recommended replacement) for the same. the old motor had 2 wires coming out from it - one black & one white. the replacement motor does not have any wires; rather 2 male spade connectors. Can someone help me figure out which one should be white and which should be black?
It is a
1/30hp, 3000 RPM
1.4 amps, 115 volts


any help will be appreciated.

thank you!

Doesn't matter.

Thanks - i was afraid either it would burn or then it would turn the other way around (Reverse) if the wires were switched.

Nope. Single phase motors require more then just changing those 2 wires to change direction. And as far as which wire to which, its a bit like a light bulb, it doesn't care.
