Re: Will G-5400 rotor work with G-5500 control box?



Hello Brian,

My 5400B just quit working one day, no lights, no movement.  After checking 
the fuse, I started at the beginning, where the power came in.

Hard to believe, but that large, heavy duty red switch that switches 110V 
into the unit had one side that was open. A new DPDT and I was back in 
business.

This was the last thing I thought would fail.  So, start at the beginning 
and trace the power.

73,
Gould, WA4SXM
