Default How do i wire a bread maker motor?

A co-worker gave me an old bread maker to see if I could use the motor. It has a large motor (~4.5 inches across) and 4 wires that go to 3 prongs. The two blue wires go to the same prong. I'm guessing the red is (+) and the yellow (-), is the blue a ground or would that just feed another part of the bread maker?

Any advice you can give will help prevent me from electrcuting myself.

The one I dismantled had a big capacitor to help start it spin - did yours have one?

Not that I remember seeing when I tore apart the bread maker, but the wiring did go to a board that may have had a capacitor.

My bread maker runs two speeds, one for mixing and one for kneading. I suspect that might be what you have there. There is not really any universal color code, but it could be yellow as a common and red or blue as the high/low speeds.
