On mine they are a magnetic brake that keeps the motor from moving when it is supposed to off. I have a lever to move it manually. Very delicate coil inside so be careful if you take it apart.

The black wires are the motor brake. The brake is disengaged with power to the motor in either direction.

When i jumped power to the motor i only supplied power to the red/black wires on the side and the motor ran. Do i need to also apply power to the to black wires on top to release the brake ? And if so, does polarity matter.
