Default Hudy tire turer problem

Wasn't sure where to post this but I knew you guys could help me.
My Hudy tire turer doesn't spin the tire in the "diameter" direction. It does spin it in the "round" direction.
Any ideas?

Greg,
I know exactly what's wrong with it.

Its the switch. You can contact me at [email protected] or call 214-744-2400 and we can get it taken care of.

RCAmerica has a thread on here if you need to post or ask anything else.

Thanks Drew

Mate, I have a Hudy tire truer as well and in diameter it only starts spinnin when when you push switch to move the cutter. Isn't that the way they're supposed to be?

Greg,
I do have the switch in stock, it's very easy to replace, just replace it yourself and see if that fixes the problem.

The problem was the connection from the switch to the circuit board. I cleaned the conectors, re-crimped them and it works fine now. Pass it on!
