    I have a snowex spreader with the control model of D6527. The controller will turn on but has no numbers on the readings nor will it spin the auger or spinner. Anyone have any idea of what this may be. I can hear the relays clicking but that is about it. Thanks

    Should be the small one correct? Just double ck the power wires,,,make sure they are making good contact. Bend the tabs if needed. Sounds like internal issues tho..

    It's the bigger control. It's inside because I put another control and everything works great. I put the one not working back and it will not turn the auguer, spinner or vibrator.

    It should be a relay, going to have to find out how to test them. Bad thing it looks like they are welded

    That's easy to solder them in. Finding the right one is issue I would think

    Where to Test Controller

    The best way to diagnose and solve your problem is to take your unit to an authorized SnowEx dealer near you. They should have the test kit for diagnosing your problem. Follow the link to our website and check the Dealer Locator for the dealer near you.

    I have fixed many of those control boxes there are a few common (and I am assuming known by Snow Ex) . I have been repairing these and use heavier duty parts and components to resolve the issues. Send me a message if you are still having issues.

    nwilson fixed my snow ex control and it was doing the same thing. Would power on, but no display or power to the spinner. it was repaired fast and at a fraction of the cost!

    issue with my snowex D6507

    i direct 12 volts to all motors and vibrator then through the wiring harness that plugs into controller that works through to all componants .
    I have 15.5 volts coming to controller.
    Sometimes the power on light is on other times that light is not on but the red leds light up and puts a code Lb .
    Vibrator lights up and works.
    low or no voltage coming out with the red black connections .
    Don't see any burnt wires .
    I believe its in the controller .
    Thanks for any help
    Or can a dealer diagnose just the box ?

    It's the white on/off power switch. Jump it out by touching orange/red together, numbers display will kick on.

    nwilson, I also have 2 d6527 controllers that dont work , latest one being 2 weeks out of warranty. powers up box , vibrator light and power light work then just error messages on displays. new controller all works well. Do you fix these for others?
