My guess is the magnet is shorted. Get a meter and put it in resistance and measure across the two leads and report back.

Now why is it shorted will be the real question. A blown transistor will melt a coil and cause that.

The transistor is likely shorted to ground which is telling the magnet to always be on. Test the transistor and see if it’s open.

And for the magnet, just test across the two leads on the magnet connector itself. Unplug it and test for resistance across the two pins.

Quoted from xbmanx:

I did a continuity test on this and it beeped

It’s supposed to beep don’t test continuity. Test for resistance.

Quoted from xbmanx:

I wish i better understood what this means. Can you point me to a resource on testing this? Does changing the magnet board fix this?

Changing the magnet board may fix it. But you’ll want to know for sure the magnet coil is still good or you’ll blow the new one. You should be able to search here or google to learn what you need. Take your time, lots to learn.
