  1. Re: E6 - What are my options for developing at home

  2. Re: E6 - What are my options for developing at home

    For US Freestyle sells Arista kits, Fuji kits, and, supposed to have Tetenal in early 2020. I will be using the Fuji EU (Belgium made) Pro6 5L kit for the foreseeable future. I divide the...

    Looks like the drawing calls for a 6.3 A fuse?? I'm not sure that's what it is it looks like it's right before the power switch. Again? ??

    This may be a little late to ask. Are you sure you have the right amperage fuse?

    Re: Jobo CPP2 Motor Malfunction

    Could the heater be "leaking" current somehow, or pulling too much current that when the motor starts up it takes it over the limit? I'm sure Omer Hecht at Catlabs could fix it if he had the parts....

    Re: Jobo CPP2 Motor Malfunction

    If you can hook up your separate DC power supply through the switch it should regulate the speed of the motor. I have a suspicion it's something on the 110V side that's blowing the fuse.

    So you unplugged the motor from the MOTHERBOARD? I took electronics in 9th grade, so consider that before you take my advice. It's a DC motor, so I am assuming that the 0 to 7 switch is a "dimmer"...
