Thanks. ***** am 79 years old and can't lift or turn over machine.

It's most likely your brake or DC Motor that has gone bad. You don't need to lift the machine. But it is fairly involved Repair. I can walk you through it or you can call Octane at(###) ###-####and they can find a local tech to come to your home and Repair the machine.

Thank you. I will call Octane and have some one come out.

No problem, make sure they bring a brake and DC Motor. That way they don't make a diagnose trip first.
