Hi guys,

When I power up my Fox, the FMG 6 just starts spinning and won't stop - makes no difference if you press the calibrate button once or twice etc.

I've swapped cables and had them tested - all fine. The problem started on set and I swapped cables and it started to behave. Since then, it appears to have become a continuous rather than intermittent problem.

So 2 questions really:

1) Any ideas what the fault is? Is it likely to be in the motor or the receiver/amp?
2) Is there anyone in the UK you guys can recommend to take a look a it?

Many thanks!

I had the same problem on my back up unit Bartech and FMG 6,
the problem was with the receiver ,
I don`t know so much about the fox I only used it in Europe a couple of time ,

Hi Mike

Check your cables first, a broken feedback pot core in the cable will do that.

Thanks guys,

I have had both cables checked and they were okay. I don't know if anyone would let me test it on their system so I can figure out whether the motor or receiver is at fault? I'm in London on Monday if anyone is feeling bored??
