You're not an electric wizard. Please don't die trying to fix this. 230 volts is powerful and lethal. Sounds as if you procured a general purpose replacement for the dead motor and now it's not going back together correctly. Look up schematic diagrams and connect the dots. If your new motor isn't the same as the old one, it can be made to work with labor and materials. If you mess around too much something will die. Then you will spend more money on it or get shocked or both. Find a schematic reader.
