    Could be a bad ground or the wire connection are not good, resistance in wire or connection could cause it.

    Ditto with humble1. We blew several solenoids on our LESCO Z-two sprayer/spreader. We found that two wires were extremely hot to the touch, so we took it to Sprayer Specialties. Turned out that it had two bad grounds in the wiring harness. Cost us about $300 in labor cuz he had to trace each wire.

    I'd call Scott at LT Rich to see what he thinks. This ain't the time of year you want aerators to be down.
