If there is a small capacitor on your motor, it could be a bad capacitor.I am not showing one in my wiring diagram. If no capacitor, the motor is the issue.

To verify, take a volt meter and check between RED and White where they leave board going to motor. As soon as motor gets power it should come on immediately
