I have pulled up the service tech sheets again and it say motor. at the bottom it says check control board, there are only two parts for that failure but this doesn't have a motor control board all the electronics in this one are in the main control board. Attachments are only available to registered users.Register Here the only thing I can say is return the motor and order the control board, they will credit you for the motor and you can get the control board sent out. heres a link to that. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Main-Control-Board/12002651/1184314 sorry for the confusion, hope this helps, thanks, Bryan

I replaced the motor, but it still didn't work. The circuit boards were another $200 and I didn't want to pay that. I looked the old cirduit boards over real close and found a solder joint had melted. I resoldered that connection and everything is working fine. Thanks for your help.
