Cool Magic Chef Forced Air Furnace Wiring

I have a Magic Chef Furnace that has 3 wires, 2 black, 1 white, for hooking up the 110 electrical. I put the 2 black wires on the black side of the 110, and the one white wire on the white side of the 110. The pilot lit great, stayed lit, the burner came on about 10 seconds later, but the motor never came on, and after a while the burner finally turned off. When it cooled down the burner came on again, but no motor. My question is since the two black wires could be a circut to the motor, should one of the black wires be hooked to the white side of the 110 power? Thanks Dave

Dave,
Do you have a voltmeter so you can check the voltage on those wires? Can you trace those wires back to the main panel and see where they go?
