<<Don't be so hard on yourself. Your not stupid, just didn't know what to look for. Next time you'll know.


Heh, heh! Next time it will be something different!

One of the things a good repairman can do though is make things LOOK easy. That usually only happens after the repairman sweats out problems many times, checking on the current draw of the motor and lots of other possibilities before finally zeroing in in on some seemingly simple problem. With enough experience, you can more often bypass that complicated testing and go directly to common problems or weak points in the equipment.

So I agree ---the lady posting isn't stupid. She was smart enough to hire a ***brilliant*** repairman!
