      Question....did you have this motor problem before you rewired the sweep switches?

        Try checking your motor start capasitors in the wireway on the front of the machine.

        Good luck

          I don't think the low voltage control circuit could cause this problem. I think something else went wrong while you were rewiring switches.
          If you need more help let us know HOW and WHY you rewired.

            Sounds like your start windings are constantly engaged. Check your centrifical switch. You might have nocked it down a bit while doing your work. Ive come across this problem alot, save your boards take 5 min and check your motor! I doubt re-wiring your sweep cams would cause this problem. Some how your motor isnt turning over and that is a voltage problem. Check your S contator on your chassis. Might be a bad coil.

            Good Luck

              Along with what everyone else suggested, you might want to check the contacts in your C-1 plug. Poor contacts with the pins can also cause problems.

                Take a cheater cord from the table to the sweep motor and determine if the motor is ok! Had a similar problem and it was the c1 plug not making a good connection

                  The following will cause a sweep motor to hum if it's not the motor it self.
                  The chassis,check the upper contacts on the contactor or loose wires on them. C1 plug,
                  capacitors, sweep reverse switch, If the sweep runs OK in reverse the sweep reverse switch is bad. The last place to check is the motor plug for a loose connection.
