I took some REALLY bad pictures, see them here:

I tried to check Voltage on motor while it was running. I went from the Red wire to the green ground. I was unable to get a constant reading (using AC on digital voltmeter- DC didn't work either).

I checked voltage on the speed sensor contacts on the motor shaft and it IS showing increasing voltage as the motor spins up. That makes me think its OK.

Therefore, I assume the motor is bad or the board is bad. The hard part is figuring out which one, as I can't return either once I have purchased it. When the motor was running freely, I grabbed the grooved drive end with enough force to slow it down and it threw the 3E code. This makes me think it's motor.

I'd like to hear thoughts on how to determine if it's the board or the motor. THANKS!!
