I have an 36V electric TCM forklift. FCB20H2 74500162 parts

Customer Question

I have an 36V electric TCM forklift. FCB20H2 74500162 parts unavailable. problem: when I turn on the key and put on forward or reverse the forklift drives automatically (full throttle) I have to apply the brakes to stop. Checked the circuit boards, contactors, fuses potentiometer all working fine. one more thing the 50 AMP breaker when off does the same thing. And when I press the pedal (not the breaks) it stops. what could be the problem?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Industrial Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Anything else you want the industrial mechanic to know before I connect you?

What kind of controller does the forklift have? Does it have rectifiers? Usually wide open is caused by a bad rectifier, see page 19 in the enclosed manual for checking rectifiers.
