Does anyone know of a shop that services/repairs Digital M-One motors? I'm sure the manufacturer is an option, but after all that I've heard, I'll keep that as a last resort.
Digital M-One service/repair?

The M-One has a very strong and well built gearbox, the only thing that ever seems to go wroing is the poentiometer, but the digital one dosn't have one of those. If there is a dodgy encoder, then if its the same manufacturer motor/encoder that we all use, then the encoder is part of the motor and cannot be removed or replaced. I could possibly order in another motor and encoder, but it wouldnt be quick or cheap, and the M One has a triangular spline coupling type thing, and so we would have to cut that shape onto the new motor shaft, which would not be too easy.
All in all, I think a digital M One would be a pretty tough one to fix without acess to original parts. I can have a go though.

I had heard the stories too about going directly to the manufacturer but when my analog m-one needed repair two weeks ago, I picked up the phone called Don sent it off and had it returned to me within two weeks.
Hope this helps!
