Hey all I’ve got an almost brand (only spread 6 tons) new poly caster that has low/no power to the spinner. Was working great then the spinner got really slow and eventually quit. I tried clearing it and spinning it by hand but the second more material falls on it, it starts to slow down and stops. The controller is throwing a “cp” code when it stops spinning. I checked the connection and tightened all the set screws on spinner shaft and motor. Belt and pulley look to be alright. This was installed by a reputable shop but I need it back ASAP, any advice is greatly appreciated

Hey I appreciate the reply. I took the chute back off and cleaned what I think was the magnet, reassembled. Doing that cleared the cp code but I was still getting very little power to the spinner. Took chute off again and removed motor housing. I ended up having loose connections between the motor and the wiring harness. Pushed them tight and now she’s spinning like a dream again. I will say I’m pretty dissapointed that I had to disassemble this and fix it with less than 2 hours on the unit.

For what it’s worth it wasn’t the loose connections that ended up fixing it, I had to shim up the tensioner on the spinner pulley. It was out of alignment so the spinner belt was slipping with load. Two washers fixed it.

Thanks. For some reason it just started working. Not thrilled with the quality
Me either, though it's been good since those issues a couple of seasons ago. Not that it matters much anymore, straps broke and full sander went for a ride last storm. Thank god it broke free while on site. Now it needs a new hopper for $2500
