Pull the speed reference to zero and open the


FW switch

Backward switch closed at


power-on

Pull the speed reference to zero and open the


BW switch

Potentiometer fault

Check the potentiometers wires

Potentiometer out of neutral


position at power-on

Move the potentiometer to neutral position or if it


is in neutral position already, calibrate the speed
reference

Thermal protection

Wait a few minutes and check the motors
