Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you verified that the belt is on all the pulleys properly? I would hate to think that it would come from the factory and not be assembled properly but it can happen.
Try moving the speed control to high speed and see if it won't make the unit operate then you can move it back to slow or low once it is moving.
