Best Answer

An electric motor needs 2 primary things for it to run. First, it needs power, second, it needs a ground to complete the electrical circuit. Normally this is controlled by the switch...

In this case the wiring diagram needs to be compared to the physical condition of the wiring. If the on/off switch opens/closes the ground, then there is an alternate ground in the circuit probably due to a broken wire. If the on/off switch opens/closes the power, then there usually would be a short in the on/off switch, and the power is spanning the switch.

.. Goog luck..
