    Check your connection back at the spreader. I had to put a new plug on mine last year because it was not making good connection.

    Snowex problem

    Mine is doing the same thing and I've noticed the plug has swollen from all the road salt and Ice-Melt. I was thinking of ziptying it as a tempo fix. Don't they have a better pug for it??

    It is either your connections at the spreader or your controller is getting ready to die. I would check the rear plug first, I had to replace mine last year, it was not making good contact. If you need a new controller call Bob at Karrier. They make a lot better controller than snowex and it is cheaper.

    Good Luck Mike

    Yea , my 1875 will flash a code when it is either jambed or the plug was loose.
    No other complaints on the 3rd year. ~.^

    Who is Bob at Karrier and how do you contact him. I have 3 or 4 SnowEx controllers that I would like to have fixed/rebuilt if anyone knows someone who does that sort of thing.

    THANKS !!!!!
