Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

Try swapping the two key switches, the symptoms you have described are usually related to a bad key switch, or grounding out to shut down. If that does not resolve the problem on that motor just let me know and we can continue.

Thank you!

- Joe
