West Chester PA (Chester County). Just added to my profile.
Any [glass] fuses to check?
Fume switch location...look in your Operators Manual.
It is in the exhaust outlet pathway.
I read the manual before and I don't recall it saying anything about a fume switch or fuses. There might be fuses but I didn't see any when I was messing with it yesterday. I will have to look through the manual again when I get home. I'm at work and they don't have the manuals available to download on the Alaska stove website. Their website really doesn't have much useful information at all.
All the above steps are excellent. IF you are comfortable with 115 volt power, simply unplug the unit, isolate the two wires to the feeder motor, and connect to a temp power cord, plug it in, view the results. It will work or not. Then if it does work, you can reassemble, and go to the next step. Could be lots of things, however it may be simple. IMO the feed motors are not a lifetime deal, HOWEVER if you keep the area clean, keep the stoker clean when in storage or off line, you increase the life expectancy greatly. At $110 +/-, that is a cheap part to be sacrificial. WELL WORTH having one on the shelf or available locally. Murphy's Law will assure that you will not be able to plan any event, only react to it. Are you comfortable with where this is taking you? DO not try to get a motor online UNLESS you are familiar with the shaft diameter, gear reduction speed, and purpose the motor was designed for. Free advise from the $.02 Gallery.
I think I will try this later. If it does turn out to be the motor I was informed by Alaska Stove they stock the motor for about $105 although it sounds like they will not sell direct and I will have to find a dealer. I won't try to use a different motor, I will use the Alaska OEM motor if that is the problem.

When I plug it in everything else is working besides the feeder motor. The combustion fan motor comes on and the blower fan motor comes on. That is why I think it is the feeder motor because the power cord from the electrical outlet runs to a circuit board which is powering all 3 motors and only the feeder motor is not turning on.
