I contacted customer service, but don’t expect an answer today.
.
Voltage to the tool is NOT the problem, but that’s as far as the manual goes with this problem.

No indication of any kind. This has 2 motors, 1 for the drum and 1 for the feed roller.

Thanks for your help.

My Delta has a reset button. Red and about 1/8” diameter.

Yep, need to know if it is all dead (both motors) or just one of them.

2 motors, each has it’s own switch. Nothing works.

You’ve plugged it into a different outlet to ensure it’s not just an electrical source problem? Seems like 2 separate motors both deciding to go tits up at the same time is really bad luck. My 19/38 has both motors as completely separate units, not like they have anything shared. I’m thinking it’s not the tool, but the electric source. Breaker, etc etc.

Everything I plug into that outlet works.

It doesn’t work in other outlets.

It’s not a power problem. I was hoping that someone who owns this machine had the same problem.

I’m only “intimately” familliar with the Performaxe’s, but there seems to be some common design elements.

(Speaking to a Performax so ignore if it doesn’t apply)

Assuming there is power to the terminal end of the main supply cord:

The main power enters the control box where it splits to the drum motor (plugged into a socket on the back of the box) and to the speed control for the conveyor motor.

The point where the main cord splits off consists of “Faston” type connectors which really are a bit underrated for the current. Could be one has slipped off or is otherwise cooked and not making connection anymore.

The box can be opened for inspection, but requires the conveyor motor be disconnected from the drive roller, Access is from below, a standard set screw. Loose that and remove the 4 hex head screws on opposite corners of the box. Slide the conveyor motor off the drive roller with the box cover.

Do not turn the motor or roller or aligning the shaft flat that the set screw locks down on can be a real bugger.

I’m back in business, thanks for all the help.

The power cord was the problem. That’s why it wouldn’t work, but other tools plugged into the outlet did work.

The bad part was near the plug, I cut that off and rewired the plug. Working good, now just a little shorter.

Thank you all !

Thank you!

I should have stayed in bed today. I started off by getting a splinter under the fingernail of my right index finger. I’ve been bumping it into everything.

And it went downhill from there.

I’m going to find out if I can watch tv without screwing that up.
