Sorry, my mistake.....can I plead "senile" because of my age?
Take a look at this one i am very happy with mine. It is simple and less likely to be tore off.
I'm just over 130hrs, on mine. O'Reilly's and Auto Zone are in just about every town, so I'm not sweating a motor failure too much.
OK heres how you fix the powerchute motor problem,first take the gear assembly out and weld the gear to the plate and it will last,weve done two now and both have lasted twice as long as when they were new.Heres some pics
My motor gets stuck in the full down position and sometimes in the full up position. Any ideas?
Most likely this is not a motor issue, especially if your unit uses the toggle switch. What happens is after the switch gets towards the end of its life span the return spring does not return the switch to neutral. The switch has a built in overload/safety to keep if from burning out. After returning to the neutral position it will usually reset itself in 30-60 seconds. Eventually, the switch will quit working and need to be replaced.
my old one does that,usualy its just a bad wire connection where the plug goes into the motor,i just push it in and it will start working again.
thanks guys, i'll play with it and see what i find
I just went through my second motor is less than a month yesterday. Very frustrating. So can the motors that go bad still be fixed? Or are they junk once they quit working?
Probably getting one soon thanks for pics like it a lot.
Grass Flap over power chute any day screw motors on subject.
