Sorry bout that, get use to it, failing faulty parts aren't that big on wmz's recall list, been through a few bumps in the road myself, great mills once they are de-bugged,
There are two electrical switches which are turned off alternately by proximity to the metal that rotates as the rotating clutch goes up or down. If it's one of these then it will go up and not back down, or down but not back up.
Hello, We don't see many failures of this gear box. ( I know One failure is to many) Not sure exactly what year your mill is. If the belt that runs the gear box was over tightened the gear box life is shortened. ( And Yes it could of came that way from manufacturing) The belt does not need to be tight. I would say you should be able to push the belt 1/4" and it will work fine. If you make it tight as a normal belt would be then the gear box fails. There is even a longer belt for some revisions. I know this does not help the failed gear box but now you know and others may want to check your gear box belt. Even if they never had the cover off. Loose is best. Never seize the front two bolts if they have not broken off yet!Early mills have a cast gear box later mills have an aluminum gear box. Marty
