Re: Cowen Uncapper troubleshooting
Assuming the motor turns freely by hand with the belts removed, I would also double check the voltages, including the supply and amp load if you are using a long extension cord. If that all checks out, the motor start capacitor like Steve mentioned is most likely. However, if the unit shocked you, there is something else going on, like L1 or L2 is in contact with the housing.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
