Case Feeder Motor Just Died

I purchased a case feeder in June of 2016 it was order # 470320. I was using it today and it just stopped. I took even the place out and it will not go. I even tried a extension cord to make sure it had power even though the light plugged in to the same outlet is still on. I do not see a fuse. I tried slow or fast (I always use fast).

This is nuts, I am sitting here trying to you and I heard a noise. The motor started turning. I do not have a place in there so I put one in there and it seems to be working again. Do you every have intermediate problems with these? I am worried my warranty on the motor is out in June 1017.

It is very unlikely the the motor is going bad. It sounds like the microswitch might have been caught on the tube.

I did not even think to check that. I will remember that if it happens again. Its been working great now again. Ran a couple hundred cases through it and no more problems.

Thank You for your reply.
