Hey Joe and All, Right church, wrong pew. Trace the circuit board from the top capacitor's upper leg to the large solder joint, one of two that secures the motor to the circuit board. If you are having door opening issues, the solder joint will be bad. The plastic connector w/4 red/white wires has nothing to do with door operation. If you are dubious, and who wouldn't be at this point, carefully remove the four wire plug. The door will still open when the the solder joint is healthy. I hit the joint w/ a pencil soldering iron and it just dropped off the board, exposing the motor's mounting leg. The solder joint has two purposes, one keeps the circuit trace leading to other areas, the other purpose is to secure the motor to the board. If your door won't open, keep pressure on the Open/Close button and flex the circuit board towards the rear of the unit. Flex the side of the c/b,where the two caps are, and the door will open. After re-soldering the motor joint, and all four of the white plastic's male socket joints, the door now opens EVERY time. I do apologize for leading anyone astray.  AD
