This thing was working fine for a few years, but now only Track 2 works (I haven't used the accessories). The red Overload light blinks on startup, then stays off. Track 1 puts out no power at all. The circuit breakers have not popped, and I don't think there was a single incident that started this problem.

Any help is appreciated.

does the voltage numbers change when you lift the handle?

does the handle seem loose, ie. easer to move than before?

have you tried un-pluging it for a few min. ?

are you running this side through a TIU ? if so, are you sure that TIU channel is not the fault?

These are some of the things I encountered with my set up, so I figured I'd mention them to see if they might help you. .............Mike

The voltage indicator stays at zero through lifting handle. The lamp in the track lock on does not come on. No TIU. Handle seems fine, unplugged overnight, same problem.

Disconnect the transformer from the track and see if the voltage throttle works with nothing connected to it. If you still have a problem, and the circuit breaker is not tripped, then there is an internal problem with the unit, and it needs service.
