I just purchased the powermatic 2x4 cnc router. I got it up and running perfectly. This morning however when i turned it on the inverter screen was flashing F11. Everything functioned completely normal except the spindle wouldn't turn. I tinkered with stuff and got in running, but the spindle would stop mid run and the same code F11 would be flashing again. This is really bad because everything else was still moving. I'm guessing this could seriously damage the machine. Any thoughts of how to fix this issue.

is the inverter (screen) what provides the power to your spindle? what is the make/model number? as mentioned, you definitiely want to consult the factory. i agree that it may not be wise to run, as bits snap quickly. $$

looks like a nice machine!

The tech guy said he had to talk to an engineer because I have the model with all the latest updates. I am waiting for a call back.
They may be waiting on the engineer for whoever builds the machines for them.

The powermatic is a clone of the Axiom (and similar sized laguna, etc). You might want to check on their forums. The powermatic "Engineer" for the machine is probably in Taiwan, and they might be having translation issues, that factory certainly does not manufacture the VFD, that would involve another supplier, possibly (likely) in china.
