Quadrafire Pellet Stove won't feed

Help.
Quadrafire Freestanding Santa Fe pellet stove circa 2003. Worked great for 3 months. New Exhaust Fan Motor went bad and I resat the old Electrical motor on the new fan assembly. Works fine. I was unable to get the feed motor to feed pellets. Works fine if I feed it manually. I have replaced all 3 snap discs, the Vacuum switch, the feed motor and capacitor, the Controller, etc. I checked the power to the feed motor and there was power present before I ordered the feed motor. I am assuming I have a Vacuum leak somewhere. I am going to bypass the Vacuum switch to confirm. Anyone have any thoughts......

Welcome to the forums.

I checked the power to the feed motor and there was power present
How did you check for power ?
You should be checking it with a voltmeter across both wires.
Do not use a non contact tester.

If you have the correct voltage on the motor.....it should work.
