Wanting to know whether the main red and black motor leads/wires can be simply unplugged from the motor. I'm not sure what's under the black covering sleeves and don't want to break anything. Thank you.

Hi Punterian, AFAIK the answer is no. They can only be removed as a complete unit from the inside of the casing. I must admit I've never tried it. To remove the motor open up the Control Box and release the leads, a long winded job, but I know of no other way. [color=red]P.S. You should post your questions in the appropriate section e.g. Projects/HELP WANTED.Otherwise your question can be easily overlooked.[/color] [color=red]Edit in red. [/color]

Just undo the control box and unbolt them from there if you want to take the motor out ?

Hi Dave, his question was could he remove the leads from the motor. I assumed that the only reason for doing this was to remove the motor, this is why I suggested he should remove the leads from the CB. All's clear now, clear as muddy water.
