Sounds like a four speed fan.
Green=ground
White=neutral
blue,red black, yellow are the four speeds. Connect any one them and the white to the power and it should run.

i disagree....

give us a part number..or the wiring diagram is probably on the plate anyway.

yellow can be the hot and black the HI on lots of motor wiring, also 120v, 220v, 480v, etc..

no way to have any clue what is what from those wire colors or the wire-wire resistance.

OK so now there is a switch. Is it connected to anything?
Is there any name or model number on the motor?

6 wire box fan motor


it is a powr kraft box fan, no model, no tags, no wire connections, no power cord. A neighbor offered to paint the fan for a friend, he took it apart and asked if I could put it back together, it has me stumpted. The switch is a 16 position General Electric, no model number. I tried to find any information on the Montgomery Ward Powr Kraft fan but no luck. Thank you
