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.
