    Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise
    was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying
    12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz,
    Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship
    after its stop in New York.

    This would have been the largest single shipment delivered to
    Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York.
    The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were
    eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their
    anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of
    Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

    The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is
    known, of course, as "Sinko de Mayo".

    WHAT!!!! You expected something educational from me??

          Well I never... you learn something new every day. Perhaps that explains why Mexicans use sour cream on their tacos.

          This has reminded me of a Canadian archeologist who told me that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce was very popular with early Canadian settlers and trappers who foraged in the tundra. Since Lea & Perrins have maintained a record of all their bottle designs, archeologists have been able to sift through the remains of settlements and date them according to the types of Worcestershire sauce bottles they found.

              Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
              That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

              If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

              The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

              You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
