    Two separate motors and circuits. Do you have power to the front motor?

    This is what frustrates me about this forum. I have tried to help you diagnois the problem, but you just want the "silver bullet" guess to try. This trade is hard to do well. I do not guess at repairs, we diagnois the problem.
