Hi Andrew,

Could you please attach some photos of the lead and wires you are referring to?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I have managed to trace the wire to another connector lower down the tube at the bottom
I have connected the cables correctly now but there is smoke coming from the motor now!
I have just purchased the machine and it was running ok when I saw it last.
It was dismantled on delivery.
Any ideas?

Is there a lot of smoke?

Is there a burning smell?

Something may have shorted out or fallen into the motor, or it may just be some dust that is burning off.

You can test the motor by connecting a 18V drill battery to it to see if it runs normally.
