The motor was sparking. I was not sure if the problem was dirt and oil or if something was grounding. Then as I am checking and seeing if it is working and experimenting, it jams and a tooth on the gear work. I call my husband in who tells me that if I can remove the gear I can probably order another one. Oh well its not working, what have a got to loose. I'm going to take it apart to see if I can loosen that gear and look at the motor better. Maybe I can rewire it.
The first part is to remove the carriage. Then I can get a better view. I'm taking pictures so I can see what is happening and put it back together.
Removing two bolt heads can help me get it off I hope. Then just take apart to learn.
either I will fix this or get another while having a prototype. But only after I get a bunch of other jobs done.
