Using the wire stripper, strip the ends of each wire approximately 1-2 cm  to reveal enough wire to twist back together with new motor's wires. Next, using the wire cutter, cut the {Positive & Negative} wires that are heading from the Coil Assembly  to the  Attached power cord. Cut approximately half way between the two ends of both wires.

Note: Black being {Negative} goes with the Black wire, Red being {Positive} goes with red wire. However, in this case the red wire goes with the white wire (it all depends on how the manufacturer ships it). The white wire extends from the Attached power cord Twist the red wire that is coming from the Coil Assembly with the white one, and the black wire with the black one.

  • Twist the red wire that is coming from the Coil Assembly with the white one, and the black wire with the black one.

  • CAUTION: Match the wires correctly, Black with Black, and Red with White. If you matched the wrong wire, it will cause the clippers to have a short circuit (electrical malfunction) when you plug the electrical cord into an outlet.

  • After you have twisted the wires together, use electrical tape to wrap the stripped wires. Leave some tape over the ends of the wires, and below the cutoff of the rubber around the wire as shown in the photo. Wrap the tape around the wires as tight as possible.

  • To complete this repair and reassembly, follow these steps in reverse, starting from the end of step 3 up to the beginning of step 1
