I'm having some new problems with my motor, wonder if anyone's ever encountered anything similar. I suspect that the trouble's originating with the specialized parts I had made to allow me to control vibrato speed with a volume-style pedal, but I wanted to make sure it's not the actual motor itself.
My motor is stopping on its own. Mostly when it's at slower speeds, it'll just stop, often, oddly, when I hit a big chord or there's some other big event. (Maybe this is random and I am noticing the times it happens... not sure.) The fans just stop turning, and then if I get them started with my finger, they'll start again, so clearly the motor's on, it's just not putting out enough power to turn the fans; it's meeting some resistance, and I can't tell if it's a lack of enough current or there's some problematic friction; the reason the latter seems unlikely is that it's happening on both of my (modified) vibraphones, and seems to be a new phenomenon in 16 years of dealing with one of them.
Anyone have a similar experience?
