Default Glitching Monster

I have a Monster Stock that is glitching really badly. I don't have glitching probs with my other motors. A friend suggested that the surface mounted caps are bad. Do I just solder on some new caps or do I have to take the SMCs out first?

I had the same problem.....I just put it in a toolbox for a few months then took it out and put a new endbell on it when another monster's arm burned up.

I had the same problem. The motor slowed excessively and glitched like heck. I too tossed it in the toolbox... its still there.

If you can't get it fixed just rip out the SM caps and solder on some more. Of course then you have to spend ages re-aligning the brushes(if you do it).

Hey, you might have a Bad Cap on the circuit board. Try what 'Tres' suggested. If that doesn't work, you can buy replacement Boards seperately.

That or remove the Board and just solder on 3 regular caps like the old days.
