After shutting it down I manually manipulated the stator arm.. and then let it go back to the spring loaded position.
after that it seemed to run fine..
But I will wait till the exercise cycle this week and then make a determination.
Strange thing is it ran fine without any hiccups over 3 test cycles (killing the power company input), and a weekly exercise .. THEN it snowed hard-- (surveillance camera showed 3-5 inches on top and then 4-6 inches around the base.....) This is when it failed...
Now warranty question...
I did a self install- is my warranty still valid?
Are you possibly referring to the governor arm ?
