    no go

    is it a joystick control ? if so is the light on the rocker switch working at the times when it stops ?it could be ready to fail .
  4. i have the rocker switch box one.dont think it is controller cause the cylonoid will always make noise when push the rocker. yeh i guess it would have to probably be the motor never really thought of that it hasnt had a new motor yet had it 5yrs now been used alot all commercial so guess that is probably what is going then.

    Boss Fix

    I had the same problem (similar) and went to boss this morning and it was an easy fix. Take a small screw driver, disconnect the main power (two cable) black and red. Look at the male end on each side of the cables (red on one, black on the other). Take the small screw driver and gently spread the connectors, clean it if it needs it and hook back up and you should be good to go!! Works like magic to get a good connection.

    Best of luck
