Couple days ago my auger motor stopped working or so I thought. Auger does not turn but I do have constant power to it. So went and picked up a replacement auger motor from earth sense. Plugged it in and nothing. I still have constant power to the connectors.

So first question does the main circuit board supply constant or intermittent power to the motor?
Second any thoughts on what could be wrong?
