    I just replaced one the other day, you will have to tip the stove forward. The motor shown is the one, you will have to remove the motor from the mount by taking off the 3 nuts on each arm. You will not need that large black mount. There are 4 wires to the motor its self, you will two wire connectors for the black and white wires. The red and blue wires will need to have a butt connector each. Very simple job, it takes longer to pull the stove out, tip the stove, and push back in than it does to replace the fan.

    Are you saying that the red and blue wires are spliced together and only the black and white wires are actually connected to the stove wiring ? I have the same stove (2005) and it sounds like my distribution motor is starting to go as well.

    Thanks

    The red wire should have a butt connecter on it and the blue wire should also have a butt connecter on it (2 connecters). The white and black wires should have a spade connecter each to plug into the stove wire harness. Then tape all 4 wires together and snake them into the hole in the bottom of the stove. Should come out just to the side of the auger motor, control panel side.

    blower went in easy - two wires on motor ... butt connector - easy feed - I tend to snake a firm wire thru and tape then pull back thru .. works with general electric feeding in tight spaces of home as well ......
