Yours has switches?  Mine will grunt up against the stop all day until you
tell it to stop (or you chew up the motor).  While we are inside the 5400
mine needs to have the Az pot cleaned.  Does anyone know how to break those
5 phillips screws loose?  I have been able to get two of them, but the other
three won't budge.
