Had a problem over the weekend with my T2X. It wouldn't turn. It
was working fine, then all of a sudden it was stuck at about 300
degrees. I tried the usual rocking back and forth to free the sticky
brake, but no luck. All the indicator lights were normal. I tried
several times over the next 30-45 minutes and it just wouldn't move.
I gave up the contest in disgust, and the next day checked the rotor
and it worked fine, as if there was no problem earlier.
The rotor was refurbished about a year ago and looked brand new
inside and out.
I don't think it was a thermal cut-out as I was not turning it a lot.
Would an aging motor starting capacitor act intermittently like this?
The control box is about 14 years old. Any other ideas?
