Buyers Spreader motor burning out

    I have a 2 yard Saltdogg I bought brand new. I am now on my 3rd spreader motor in 3 years. The motor seems to heat up and burn out. Before its completely gone if I tape up the wires inside the spreader case in whatever direction it likes at the time it makes a connection and works. If they lay normally there is no connection.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    Is this something consistent with the buyers motors or could it be something with the wiring in my truck that burns it out?

    Thinking about selling this nightmare.
