I had issues with the breaker popping on my Performax 16/32 a while ago. It seems the factory breaker is only good for several “events” before it becomes overly sensitive. I replaced it with a higher quality unit and it hasn’t tripped since.

Another issue was the conveyor speed control (basically a light dimmer) fried its TRIAC, which was easy enough to replace (and sure beat paying the several $100 replacement part cost). The sign of failing was the speed “surging” while under load.

Some may consider these problems a sign of low quality, but given that the mechanical parts are still 100% I’d say it’s doing good for the $800/new price I paid a number of years back.
