Bobcat SB 200 auger rotates fine but Chute controls 't work.

Customer Question

Bobcat SB 200 auger rotates fine but Chute controls don't work. I have power to all connections but when I have one or more electrical connections hooked up to the blower I get power to the ground when I engage either switch. I have tried connecting only each one of the four electrical connections and get the same result. Is this normal? If so what is the problem? I measure zero resistance thru each of the coils when all are disconnected.

Solenoid coils are just electro magnets, do you have continuity through the coils? If no continuity, you have bad coils.

Or test coils with battery voltage and ground.
