That sounds to me like you now have TWO faults:The test was with the wires disconnected from the v-box. I think the wires have become disconnected at the motor end so when the installer can get back to check I have no idea atm. No movement with power supply. the reed sensor can be replaced on the 36v motor ?
- somewhere (probably at the motor terminals) the M- & M+ wires have become shorted together (not disconnected!) - probably as a result of what the installer was doing up at the dish when he changed the LNB!
- that short means that the output terminals of the Vbox have thus also been shorted together, and that has caused a failure within the box itself, which then meant that it cannot output the correct voltages along the M-/M+ wires.
OTOH, I doubt that the reed relay has had any part in either failure - therefore the "solution" is probably to get the installer to correct the fault at/around the motor terminals, and then, unfortunately, to repair or replace the Vbox.
