    I have a fix/service that I can provide for burnt out western spreader controllers specifically the one in the picture. The cost is $75.00 and that includes shipment back to the US. Email me for details...

    That is what we originally thought too but it is actually the power switch that is solder to the circuit board.

    Before spending money to have it fixed, check with your Western Dealer. There was a recall on some of these controllers. I took mine in and they made one phone call and handed me a brand new controller and off I went.
