I have a Sadoun PowerTech DG-280 motor that's developed a weird problem. Every time I start my receiver, I have to tell the motor to go to reference. If I don't, it seems to have no idea where it is. Most of the time, trying to go to any satellite (via USALS; I haven't tried 1.2 because I don't have it set for any birds) will result in the motor going to the east hard limit -- even if the satellite is west of where the motor started. I tried the reset procedure in the manual and at first I thought it worked, because the next attempt to go west went west, but even though it didn't go all the way to the limit it still didn't stop where it was supposed to stop. Another weird thing I found is that if I attempt to move the motor with the manual controls while it's at the east limit, it won't even go back to 0, stopping at about 10 degrees instead. The whole thing has got me stumped. The last time I had a motor problem (bad relay), it would go all the way in one direction when trying to move either direction, but since it was a mechanical hardware problem, there was no way to get it working correctly. This time, if I give the go to reference command, it works fine again for as long as I don't shut the receiver off. (And I've tested it with another receiver to make sure that it wasn't the receiver going buggy.) I don't feel like taking the dish down and remounting it in the winter, so I'm not buying a new motor yet. I wish I knew if there was some way to fix this one though. For now, I guess I'm just going to have to send it to 0 every time I want to use the dish. Either that or leave the receiver on all the time.
