I have a powerfeed on my mill that is warm to the touch without use. My other powerfeed on the other axis is cold. It seems to be drawing power somehow.What could this be.

It also smells when it is in use.Here in darkest africa it is difficult to order spares and is expesive. I am hoping someone has had experience with this. Thanks.

If your Align unit is like mine, the lever activates a couple of microswitches. All should be OFF and it should not be drawing any power when the lever in the middle. If it's drawing power, I'd suspect that one of the switches is defective.
