    Polarity reversed on the wires going to it could make it go backwards.

    if it was a "c frame" motor the stack could have been put on upside down , this will reverse polarity in an ac motor reversed wires would not , however if a dc motor it will , our poster did dissasemble the motor , depending on how far it was pulled apart it could be a reversed stack

    yep , most of them are c frames and can be reversed that way a "shaded pole would not work like that though and i dont know what type is in the unit in question, but im betting thats what happened if he has an ac system
