Rotex 90 power switch stuck
« on: September 13, 2018, 09:16 AM »
Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening

I just went to turn on my Rotex 90 and the power switch is stuck in the off position. I've tried changing pads (delta, round and removed altogether), and in each different rotary position but it won't budge. Anybody know a possible quick fix before I have to send it back to service?

Thanks

Try spinning the motor at the pad area by hand to see if that frees it up.

Thanks. I cleared out a bit of caked up dust and it spins freely but unfortunately, no joy with the switch moving.
