Not sure if this is the correct place for this, if not please let me know.

My power feed has no speed adjustment. It still runs but at full speed. Is this something that can be repaired, I or just get a new one.


Thanks Danny KIMG0077.JPGKIMG0078.JPG

off the top of my head it would appear that the potentiometer or the wiring in the potentiometer circuit is faulty.
there is the potential for control board failure too.
crack it open, inspect it and look for broken or burned wires or connections.
my unit didn't work when i got it on my BP.
turns out there was a broken wire inside, a 2 minute solder repair saved a couple hundred bucks ;)

Check the set screw that holds the speed knob on. I had one come loose and wasn't turning the shaft.
