Did you see my question about WHY the screws are turning the wrong way?????????????????????????????
Taking the yellow wire OFF and taping it does just what I said it did when you had me remove it - IT starts IMMEDIATELY upon plugging in - IT SHOULD NOT. You should have to TURN the switch to start.
With the YELLOW wire REMOVED from the terminal marked Y the unit starts running IMMEDIATELY upon being plugged in -
This unit is designed to run ONLY when you turn the start switch to the right one time then it springs back to the upright position - the ram should start to go down - compact- come back and complete the cycle.
I AM NOT sure if you are READING my ENTIRE question - you still have not explained WHY THE SCREWS are turning the wrong way???
I realize I have several problems -
Something is making the start switch malfunction - IT COULD be a bad switch - I AM POSITIVE it is plugged in or the wires are correct!!!!!
UNLESS the switch is MARKED incorrectly - HOWEVER - I took the wires off and put them on the opposite terminals with NO SUCCESS.
I apologize but I am getting really frustrated here -
I know how difficult it is on your end - you can only go by what I am telling you and I KNOW how confusing I can be
SO-------I am telling you - the switches are hooked up correctly
The ram is NOT going down because the screws are turning the wrong way - backing out of the unit
I realize this sounds like a bad directional switch and or a bad on off switch and they were both just changed. I guess one or both could be bad.
PLEASE - - is there anything else that would cause the motor or the screws to turn the wrong way?????
WOULD the xcord shorting out have caused anything like this?
