KBIC 240 controler problem
« on: January 15, 2017, 09:55:11 AM »
Hi All,

I'm not a electrical genius that's why i hope You can point me in the wright direction. I do have a mini mill with a KBIC 240 controler, the mini mill is the XJ12-300 from Amadeal. The mill is in low RPM's  intermittent and some times loses torque in the middle of a milling cut. Any idea what can be wrong. I have checked the brushes and these are ok.

Any idea is appreciated.

Regards,

Jan,
The kb controller isnt too compliicated, but fault finding without any test equipment and not having it in front of you doesnt help.....
Is the mill under warranty? If so a call to Hugh at Amadeal might help...
So, options,buy another controller or else have yours repaired....

Hi John,

Thanks for Your reply. I do have a multimeter. The mill is out of warranty but i opened the site of the mill and found the controlboard and i have seen the potmeter. I think there is something wrong with the potmeter, i saw black sud under one connector, so i wil check that tomorrow. Maybe a new connector could be a problem solver. Otherwise i order a new potmeter from Amadeal.

Jan,
The speed pot is connected to P1,P2 and P3 on the pcb.....you could check the connections, making sure they are secure.  :zap:

The speed pots are known to fail, I've changed mine twice during the life of my machine.... :scratch:

Keep us posted on your progress.... :thumbup:

Hi John,

I took a closer look at the potmeter and turned it verry slowly up, seems like there is something wrong with the wiper, i suspect not good contact. So i looked at the WD40 can i have and found out it is usable as a contact spray. So i gave it a try and sprayed some in the potmeter. It looks like the problem is solved. I'm a happy man.  :) :)

Thanks for your advise,

Regards,

Jan,
