Why the heck would they lock the button from inside the box?

That is just weird but who knows just what they are thinking ??

HMM.... maybe to keep people who do not read instructions or know what they are doing from hurting themselves....... ???

They like to keep us busy........ ;D

I think point two is the only good one ;)

In the litigious world we live in, selling a piece of electrical equipment that requires you to delve inside the control box before using it would likely be deemed illegal.

Bear in mind these are hobby machines, industrial stuff would be a different kettle of fish, but then you would likely get instructions in English :)

I have a sneaky feeling that this (safety) bit of plastic is a necessary part to stop the switch internals falling apart when the Chinese assemble it to the front panel of the controller case.
Why waste their time and money removing it when you can leave that for the end user to do (some will believe them when they say it is a safety device).

Hi again all - here's the latest update:

Having opened the box, there doesn't appear to be anything to remove/release (but not being an expert in such things, perhaps someone will correct me on this).

Thanks again for your advice,

Samuel

That stop button action looks normal to me.

To rule it out just disconnect the wires (power off) and short out and insulate then test it - this will remove the button from the problem.
