Thought I would ask in case someone electrically inclined is reading...

I have the myth Airhog LX extractor..

Past 2 jobs it seems motor 2 is 'cutting out'..

running one motor doesn't cut the mustard and probably impacting dry times.

Funny thing is, after each job I get back to the shop, fire up the generator and both motors run fine??

I swear when I was on the job and it seemed the motor was cutting out, when I switched it off and then back on it sure as heck didn't seem like it was kicking on..

faulty wiring somewhere?
generator issue?
overheating?
motor needs replacing?
me losing my mind?


Any help appreciated. Thanks guys.

Good luck dude. I saw a mechanic futz with a Mytee portable for 3 weeks. Replaced damn near ever switch, wire and motor before the thing started working again. Moisture and electricity don't mix.
Uh oh..

Because my motor turns back on after job and I only seem to experience at the end of jobs...maybe there's a saving grace in there...

Ill check for loose connections...
