Then you need a new console. It has shorted out and is sending the wrong signal to the DC Motor
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
On second check the console seems to tale instructions as it should. But, the motor runs constantly from the time I plug the power converter into the wall receptacle and there is a constant clicking sound.
