outage, somehow now the electronic portion of my (20 + year old) Toro
electronic controller is (bad, no good). Fortunate, only limited to that
item. All else electrical, electronic is fine at this time.
Years ago, power outage at a John Deere dealer where I worked. Somehow power
back on but at a low voltage (either low or a 220 got split/bad so a 220
(big shop heater) motor spinning overly slowly with peculiar noise (110,
half of the 220).
I assisted the shop service manager to A.S.A.P. get the power turned off to
that and to all other relevant devices. Then, test/troubleshoot and insure
proper supply (volts, amps etc.) to save/protect high dollar commercial
electric motors. (soon burn up if left to run on excessively low voltage).
