So long story short last year at the end of the season I had to replace my Auger motor on my Accentra52i- insert stove. I never got the thing back together until recently and now the stove won't stay lit. It looks like the motor is turning counterclockwise and is 'sucking pellets into the hopper.'

I'm guessing I bought the wrong motor but purchased this from Amazon: Replacement Harman 4RPM Clockwise Auger Motor 3-20-60906 AMP-CW4

I was looking and it seems there may be a way to mechanically change the direction of the rotation but I can't find instructions online. Does anyone know how to do this?
