Please can someone advise some tests I can carry out to test if my motor has failed. I recently returned from a 2 week holiday (before the windy weather !) and found my dish turned right round as far East as it can go, much further than it's supposed to. In fact, the dish itself is touching the wall of my house and the motor won't budge ! I can't get the dish to move via the satellite receiver box, and the manual East/West buttons on the motor don't do anything either. There's a faint click if I press West, but no movement. The motor LED is green with the receiver powered on, and turns red when I instruct it to move, via the reciever or manual buttons, but nothing actually happens. I've tried forcing the motor by hand at the same time as instructing it to move, but it won't budge. I've placed the motor indoors and connected a new cable to it direct from the receiver, and even done a factory reset on the receiver, but still nothing. Is there a simple test I can do with a volt meter to determine if the receiver is sending out the required voltage or current to drive the motor ? I've heard about people powering the motor manually using an external 12 volt source. I've not yet removed the motor cover as it's only 18 months old and still might be under warranty. The problem is, it's from Maplins (part number A16FB made by 'Nikkai'). Maplins say they only offer 12 month warranties, but Fortec Star who apparently used the name Nikkai back then, may offer a 2 year warranty. But I'm unable to contact anyone at Fortec Star. Does anyone on this forum know if this motor has a 2 year warranty, or have a phone number for 'Nikkai' support ? If it's not under warranty, I can at least take the lid off and have a look inside (it's currently sealed with 'warranty void if removed' stickers).
