    Hey willie i have the same salter i would try bypassing the controller to see if the motor is fine.If the motor works get an electrical tester and test for power coming out of controller then on both sides of the plug where salter hooks to the truck.I had similar a problem but my controller had the lights flashing it ended up being a bad plug.

    Hi Willie
    The controller is the weak link in any snowex spreader. Do yourself a favor and call Bob at Karrier Company in Ohio. You can google his company and find his number. He is a controller wizard.

    Good Luck Mike
