Goodman Draft inducer motor

I have a Jackel inducer motor that runs intermittent. Motor runs fine when you jiggle white wire. Replaced connectors but still have to jiggle to get it running. Male connection in motor housing is loose. Is there anyway to hard wire this to eliminate the male/female connection? Thank you

Welcome to the forums.

There are an awful lot of different models of Goodman draft inducers in use. I can't offer much help without knowing which one you are working on. It's part number or even a picture or two would be helpful. How-to-insert-pictures

Goodman Furnace Draft inducer motor switch contacts

I have a Goodman Furnace and the draft inducer motor works intermittent. If you jiggle the white wire it will turn on. I replaced the connector but still have the same problem. I believe the problem is with the male contact which is in a plastic housing on the motor itself. Since the motor runs fine when it turns on is there anyway to Hardwire this to bypass the male/female connection. Thank you

Yes, open up the blower motor's housing and connect the wires directly.

Thanks for your reply. I did mess up the thread. I'm new to this...lol. The inducer motor is a Jakel with a part number of 119435-00.

The male slide on terminals are connected directly to the motor windings. If you remove that terminal you'll be working with a copper wire the size of your hair. One possible problem could be where the fine copper wire solders on to the terminal.

Do you need to cut away the plastic to reveal the slide on metal spade?

I'm not sure what you are asking. When you unplug the motor leads the quick disconnects are exposed. They are molded into the plastic motor housing. If you pry them out of the plastic housing.... the motor wiring will most likely be broken.

You just answered my question. I don't want to disturb anything that would.lead to it not working at all. Do you.have any recommendations for this issue? I read in a thread from a few years back that a guy was able to get some high temp epoxy in there to solidify the connection. Please advise

Recommendations... replace the draft inducer.

You've already said it has an intermittent connection somewhere in the connector. If you're not able to figure out how to directly wire to the motor or to get past the male connectors then all you have left is to replace the draft inducer. You can goop on glue but you still have the underlying problem of the bad connection. You may get lucky and goop it in place where it's making contact but odds are good that corrosion or vibration will cause it to fail.

I wouldn’t try that, if it’s the motor just replace it.
Loose connections, even small ones like that motor, can be fire hazards.
Just make sure it’s not the wiring

Thank you for your input. I'm quite certain the area of issue is the connector molded into the plastic. Any recommendations on where to get the motor from? I've seen quite a few places when I searched but perhaps you guys have a go to place.

You can search using the Jakel model number you posted. You can buy just the motor or the entire blower assembly. If you are crunching dollars you could purchase a used one from eBay.

I’d take a look at the inside of the assembly before you ordered anything. Many times the acidic flue gases will start to eat at the metal, which makes getting the assembly apart impossible without destroying it.
