Helo, stand by

First thing to check is the top door switch, if it is defective it will keep the auger from working.

Unplug unit then jump the 2 wires together then start it up

Dose not have door switch

OK, check to see if motor is getting power when it is supposed to turn

You need to measure voltage feeding the motor with a volt meter. the control board is responsible for doing that.
