I recently purchased a house that has a Piazzetta Sabrina. I haven't seen the stove work but the previous owner said it was having feeding issues and the auger motor needed replacing. I started with the cold function test to test each motor individually. I found both the auger motor and exhaust fan not functioning. After replacing the auger motor and clearing the feed chute that was packed full of pellets the motor still will not operate. I measured the voltage to the motor and found it only getting 57V. Next I replaced the control board. Now I'm only getting 50V to the motor. Does anyone have any input on this or suggestions on what the issue may be? The cost of parts darts is adding up fast.

Thank you for any input.

Do you have a manual?
If not search for one.
Possible pressure switch malfunction
I am not versed in your stove so not much help.
Test everything before throwing parts at it!!

I do have the manual, it's been helpful to a point but not as in depth as I've gotten. I bypassed the pressure switch and the auger motor does function now. However when I do the cold test to test each individual motor/function the exhaust fan and auger are actuated when only calling for the auger. I ordered a new pressure switch and we'll see where that leads.
