Thanks guys, I went out and tested the motor to see if it would run if I pulled the neutral off the switch, it doesn’t. My very simplistic understanding of AC/DC motors led me to believe I may not need the neutral since it’s a direct current and not alternating. Turns out it doesn’t work that way. Have to have both to run.

THanks again guys!
