Default Re: Ampro New Educational - motor woes, issues and solutions

I assume it's C23 we're talking about which is the 0.5uf across the governor contacts. The usual failure mode of these is short circuit: I was once watching a film on my Stylist when it suddenly speeded up to probably 48FPS until the film broke! These caps have a very hard life.

My New Educational has been fine so far, but still has the original cap AFAIK...

Stylist has two governors for 16 & 24FPS, Educational is governed at sound speed only.
