Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The motor has failed and will need to be replaced.

They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY! Motor <----- CLICK HERE FOR THE CORRECT PART FOR YOUR MODEL The motor comes with installation instructions. Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help! Please remember to leave positive feedback before you leave. If you have any other questions, please let me know!
