    Does anyone know who or where I can get my digital controller rebuilt?

    I noticed it was pulsating when I was spreading and the spinner speed took awhile to adjust.Then it just stopped! I just changed out the bearing and the motor. The auger was spinning fine for a few moments then started to pulsate again then just stopped like it was jammed. This happened without a load on!

Thinking I might have a controller on the way out!

    you can order just the circut board for the spinner and the auger. Go ahead and put 2 new switches in it for power and the vib. Easy to do less then 5 minutes for everything. The board snaps right in and just plug it in.

    Doesn't sound like a controller problem at all.I would hard wire,bypassing the controller right to each function and then see what happens.

    I'm not sure what else it could be! The controller send out the commands. I can't see the gear box going bad on the auger, but maybe something is binding up in there. I'm going to swap out with another controller and see what happens. Thanks
