    Anyone with Meyer knowledge will see it in there but follow the standard electrical diagnosis thought process- check battery, battery connections, motor connections, motor brushes, motor bearings. in that order. Possible it's a hydraulic problem too creating high resistance for the motor. my gut says bad motor brushes or bearings (which allow the armature to misallign and cause shorting).
