Sieg X2 Random problem
« on: March 05, 2016, 08:07:11 PM »
hey guys so I Have a harbor freight Mini Mill X2. Its a newer one with the better motor controller but today I was just drilling today and popped my fuse. It holds a 5Amp I only had a 3amp in it. After I put a 5 back in it, it turns on fine but the spindle wont turn!! I checked P2(Wiper of POT) is sending signal all the way to Circuit board... What the hell when wrong here?

I'm not sure this is a Mach3 issue?

Sounds more like the motor and/or controller gave up the ghost and died, is it under warranty??

No controller board issue. I just solved it today. The opamps where fried along with the 12v reg. I did a face lift on her today thanks to DigiKey, and shes all up and running beautifully, especially since I found there is a auto spindle calibration in mach 3 as i was trying to solve the problem. So new better then new, literally haha

Very weird since the fuse was half of what it could be hmm..

Thanks for the reply tho
