MOF 96E rebuild nightmare - wires mixed up and expensive smoke
This is an excellent forum with lots of great info. Hello all!
I found the Mailee post on here which provides great instructions on disassembling the ELU MOF 96E. As I was taking mine apart it was apparent that it was full of sawdust and as well as new bearings and brushes needed a proper clean.
So, after documenting the wiring carefully (I thought) I thoroughly stripped down the router, cleaned it and reassembled.
Queue fireworks, the new brushes melting within 45 seconds and a fair bit of smoke.
In my defence, I saw that the new bushes come with a serrated edge and the initial 'odd' behaviour I simply put down to the bushes bedding in. As soon as the smoke started I powered off.
I believe I've got the primary winding wires and the secondary wiring muddled up (if I've got the terminology correct). However, the wiring is spot on with what I've documented and I have no 'authorised' wiring diagram to go off. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance for any help.
