What was the problem Fred. Did the motor not start, or did it burn up after some use.
The reason for my question is that I had the same problem with my HF 44142. Out of the box it would not start, until I realized (after much searching on the Internet) that there is a hidden safety switch built into the mill head. Unless one of the mill head cover bolts/knobs (the one towards the spindle) is in place and tightened, the whole machine will not start. No lathe, mill, or anything.
You may have already been aware of the safety switch, in that case please excuse the long winded explanantion.
After about 1hr or so of running (off and on) the run capacitor started blowing. Rather, the first one blew and I replaced it. The second blew, I replaced it and the 3rd started getting REAL hot. So I cut it off and called Griz for the 3rd time. I thought it was the start cap. but after taking the cover off the other cap, I found out that it was the run cap instead.
Yeah, the Grizzly has the same thing. I know electronics pretty good, but it took me forever to figure that one out. I still haven't figured out how they have it mounted onto the threaded rod [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/smirk.gif"%20alt="[/img]
