First, I’m looking for someone in the general vicinity of Delaware that can troubleshoot and possibly repair an automatic Vandercook Universal III. Know anyone? If not, is there some kind of electrician I might try contacting. Obviously, I need more than someone to hook up a 3-phase here.
We were running our III the other day and as the cylinder ‘approached’ the end of its trip away from the feedboard, it simply stopped.
We checked fuses which were blown. We replaced them, but they immediately blow.
If you set it to Manual, the forward / reverse switch causes the relays to activate, but nothing moves.
