so i had the oppurtunity to buy a little buddy conveyor dryer for cheap ($800). it got here about a week ago and i finally had time to put it together and take it for a spin. top dryer portion works fine, but my conveyor doesn't work. i called up the dude i bought it from and he swore up and down they tested it right before they mailed it, and he was on the phone with me for about an hour while i poked around at the motor and switch trying to figure out what's wrong and we got nothing.
only thing i can think of is that there was a small copper spring in the bottom of the box it was mailed in, but after dissassembling everything i don't see anywhere where that would go, and i don't think that's the problem.
so yeah, i've decided the best way to handle this is to just get a new motor and switch. anyone know anything about this kind of stuff and have any recommendations? i found what appears to be the same motor (a dayton gear motor) online, but then i'd have no clue how to wire it to a switch.
anyone have any suggestions for me for things to look for to try to fix it, or have any advice on replacing the motor and switch?
