I have a Kitchenaid trash compactor KUCS02FRSS1. Sears Parts Direct sent me a new Compactor Motor 9870343 and Switch 777971, but wiring is for switch 780164.

The installation instructions for Compactor Switch Kit #780164 do not match the connections for the actual switch 777971. They're not even close. Here are the connections that came with the motor and switch. The "wire harness leads" from the compactor will match up to color on the"Motor Leads" on the switch. When I hooked them up this way on the first motor the compactor worked correctly for a few minutes and quit. This is the second motor. Did I wire it up correctly to a defective motor, if not I need correct wiring instructions.
