Well here we go again...Went out on a call the other evening .Buddy of mine couldn't unstop a kitchen drain with his pistol snake..So out came the big gun(so I thought) ..Got everything set up , adjusted for the 5/8" cable and bulb auger ..Went to power the machine up and just a humming noise again..WHAT not again!..This is the 3rd time this has happened..I removed the cover that houses the belt .Even removed the clutch jaws(little worn but no enough to mess with)..Ok so after manually spinning the to gear with the belt, eventually something freed up..Of course after tripping the motor overload 3-4 times while trying to un jam the dam* thing..I seems like there is a broken gear that is jamming up the works and once it gets past the spline or whatever is going on it will run..This is getting too old .I spent atleast 1/2 hr. just getting the machine to the point where it would work..2 days later working on a floor drain ..No problems..WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON????Of course the thing is outta warranty .Fortunately I have a friend that works on them so hopefully he can help me out with this. It does not seem like a bearing issue of any kind ..something is broked /jammed..When the motor was being switched from forward to revers the handle would jump a slight bit but that was it ..Sorry just had to vent ..I'm tired of doing this
