Servo motor continues to run

The servo motor continues to run constantly adjusting the magnetic tension on the wheel. Unplugging the power only has a momentary affect until the unit resets at which point the servo starts running again. I have removed the shroud and all wires appear to be in good condition as well as the speed sensor magnet and RPM sensor. Is the solution to replace the servo because it is bad or is there a circuit board malfunction sending a bad signal needing to be replaced?

Why doesn`t the height adjustment wheel on my windsor vacuum go up?

There are (4) main components that affect the height adjustment on your vacuum. They are: Brush roller, Servo Motor, Control board, and Sensor pulley. You have eliminated two of the possibilities already. I would ask you if either of the height adjustment lights on the PC board come on, indicating that the board is attempting to raise or lower the vacuum. I would also have you inspect the Sensor Pulley. That is the yellow pulley that both belts connect to. Do the two sections of the Sensor turn easily without resistance? Do they spring back when released? Are the magnets (small black round magnets on the inside of the Sensor wheels) still in place? That Sensor pulley system tells the PC board whether or not the vacuum needs more or less resistance (to raise or lower the servo motor). Because the Sensor Pulley is completely mechanical (no electrical components); If this Sensor pulley is completely functional, your problem is likely the PC board. I have included some links to the PC board and Sensor pulley for your convenience. Hopefully this helps. 5465 Red Ring Windsor Sensor 86145060 5740 ER Computer Controller Windsor Sensor SR XP 86140160

How do I fix my crosstrainer, magnetic resistance has stopped working

This happened to me and I took the wheel mechanism cover off to discover the tension motor cable had come out of it's pulley guide- so there wasn't enough tension left in the cable to pull it away from the wheel- quite an easy fix for me- hope it is the snake for you!

Belt stops running while standing on the treadmill

Either front roller may need to be replaced or the motor drive belt may need to be adjusted. This problems are caused when a walking belt is worn out and in need of replacement. Too much tension can cause bearing failure in the motor and the front roller and front roller pulley failure.

Motor drive belt adjustment: The motor drive belt is adjusted independently from the walking belt. Some newer models have an auto tensioner which is a lever that has a wheel that puts pressure on the drive belt and a spring on the other end that automatically loads the belt to the proper tension. You should not adjust these since they are preset. Tension can be affected slightly by adjusting the tension of the walking belt but if you have a slipping problem, the drive belt will require replacement. If your drive belt is too loose, it will slip on the front roller pulley or the motor pulley. If it is too tight, it will increase your amp draw to the point that you may have an electronics or motor problem. Due to this, it is better to be on the safe side and replace a drive belt rather than risk over tightening it.

Wire doesn't feed

Either the trigger mechanism in the gun is bad, the servo that turns the feed wheel is bad, or you have too much tension on the adjustable tensioner knob. Take the wire out of the feed wheel, plug unit in and see if you can get the wheel to turn. If not, it is the trigger or the servo. If it turns, the tensioner was too tight.

Drill Presses problem

If adjustments are necessary, follow the this procedure: Spindle side-play can be minimized by adjusting the locknut located on the left side of the motor unit 1-1/2 inches behind the spindle and towards the bottom of the motor unit. While moving the feed handle up and down, tighten the lock nut until the play is minimized, but not so tight so as to restrict free movement of the spindle. The spindle should return by itself to the full up position. The drive belt tension may be adjusted by removing the top cover and then loosening the two nuts on either side of the motor pulley. Adjust the motor position and tighten the nuts so that moderate finger pressure against the belt causes it to deflect 3/16" to 1/4" (see Figure 6). Excessive belt tension may result in damage to the bearings. Note: Belt tension can also affect the generation of "noise" in the drill press. Although it does not affect drilling accuracy, it may be desirable to adjust the tension for minimum noise. The spindle has been generously oiled at the factory. You may have to periodically wipe off oil that makes its way down the spindle.
