8895 drive problem
- The drive gears do not engage with the armature shaft screw drive. The motor just spins.
I have taken the bottom plate off and made sure the gears are fully set in place. At least I
hope they were fully set. Maybe they displace a bit when the motor starts turning. But I
suspect the screw drive has become worn and can't bite into the first gear. I switched
gears with another 8895, with the same spinning result. I have had this engine less than
two years. It has run probably less than 20-30 hours. It has a 5 pole motor. Have any of
you had such a problem with the screw drives? Do you suspect any other reason other
than wear that this could happen?
