I purchased a Spectra 20 melanger about six months ago, and have made a number of batches with it after getting is set up in my space. But recently it has stopped working. The transformer starts up as normal, but the speed controller does not turn on, the light does not come on, the melanger does not start when I move the speed dial. I get nothing.
I unplugged everything and left it for a couple days, then plugged everything back in and attempted to start it up again. Nothing happened.
I was wondering if anyone here has seen something similar, or if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions.
It took me a couple days to get my hands on the right tool to get the cover off. so Here is a picture of the inside of the Spectra 20 speed control box. I wasn't able to see anything that looked damaged.
Have you tried flicking off & on both those switches in the top right hand corner. They might just be sticking 'off'.
I'd also expect there is a fuse inside that controller box. If you feel up to it, you can probably open it, and check the fuse and make sure it's still intact. Use a multimeter on the fuse and check for resistance. There should be zero resistance across the fuse.
Make sure you unplug it from mains BEFORE you start pulling things apart.
