110V switch "field" wiring for Square-D/Sundial furnace

Square-D/Sundial model HU3M060H3.ON7.

The 110 V primary has had all switches removed. I have black and white 110 V power coming in on a conduit. From the furnace I have a black solid wire, two solid white wires, a black stranded wire (roughly 14 AWG), and a white stranded wire of the same gauge.

I can't find a wiring diagram on the doors. How do I hook this up? I assume all the whites go together since they're neutral, but where do the solid and multi-strand black wires go? Something has to go to the switch, but do they all go to the switch on a pigtail, or do some stay live and only one goes to the switch?

It's in a duplex and the other furnace was easy, two wires to two wires. This Sundial job is a little confusing with more wires from the furnace than come from the breaker panel.

Sure, assuming I can find the batteries for my camera. I'll hang it up tonight.

It's irresponsible to guess, assume or go by the color of the wires. You need to be able to check and know.

If you can't do that, do yourself a favor and find someone who can.

The most important decision for a DIYer to make is "can I do this job competently and safely? Your post implies that the answer to that question is no.

Found the wiring diagram.

The whites all go together. The smaller wires are the 24 V xfmr primaries and the others are for the fan. So black on the switch, all the whites tie together, 110 V black on the other switch terminal. Why they didn't just tie it all together internally is beyond me.
