    Spinner post has no output, replaced module lasted about ten loads, same problem. Replaced module under warranty and replaced spinner motor by recommendation, module spinner output again went away. Put both spinner and conveyer connections together on conveyor post so we could use the unit and it worked without a problem, we didn't have the control but the conveyor post never lost power. Any ideas?

    The modules are very sensitive to surges. A lot of guys including seasoned mechanics hook power to the control harness to check motor functions without disconnecting the module which is usually a fatal mistake for the module.
