If the replacement motor is an exact replacement, hopefully the wires will be the same colors, or come with a wiring diagram, either on the motor label or on a piece of paper. I would suggest taking pictures of the motor and where its wires connect. Post any information you can find (particularly any wiring diagrams you find) in this thread and we'll try to help you. I think it goes without saying, but be sure your husband turns off the power before working on the unit. You should also replace the capacitor with the specified value & voltage (new motor may have come with the appropriate capacitor).

If the replacement motor you bought is an exact replacement, it should use the same capacitance and voltage as the old motor. However, if the replacement motor is different, it may require a different capacitance value (voltage is likely the same). If you know that the capacitor in your system is good and is the correct value for the new motor, it's not imperative that you replace it. However, when going to the trouble and expense of replacing the motor, it's best to start with everything new, including the capacitor.
