Problem
Possible Causes
–
Battery fuse is blown, or battery
cable is disconnected or faulty.
Motor is disconnected.
Spreader harness ground is
disconnected or faulty.
Motor off due to controller overheat,
possibly due to frozen or jammed
spreader.
Over 35A for more than 1-2 seconds.
(Higher overloads are allowed for
shorter periods of time.)
Adjusting the Spinner Speed
The speed setting can be adjusted when the spreader
is either on or off.
1. Turn the speed dial clockwise. The speed will
increase as the number of green LED's illuminated
on the speed dial increase.
NOTE: Always place the cover on the hopper to
prevent moisture buildup. Do not let the spreader sit
idle with material in the hopper for an extended
period of time. This can cause the material to
compact and reduce or stop the flow of material.
2. Turning the speed dial counterclockwise will
decrease the speed.
