[TowerTalk] G-2800DXA Rotor Problem

We just went through three days of continuous heavy winds here and my 
2800DXA is behaving like it's suffered severe internal damage.  The 
rotor is only turning through about 90 degrees, and when I hit either 
direction button, the indicator goes rapidly in that direction and then 
slows and eventually stops.  When I release the button, the indicator 
rapidly retreats about 30 degrees.  Does that behavior indicate the 
nature of the damage to anyone?

I bought this rotor because it is reputed to be heavy duty and used to 
turn large stacked arrays.  I'm turning a 40M quad, which seems like a 
relatively modest load.
Are there any other options other than Yaesu for a repair?

Thanks for your input.

73, Joe
