When you go to compress the unit chaters (oscilates) and the motor overheats after 30-40 seconds then trips. After a few minutes you can repeat the process. Hold the direction switch foward, with the cover removed and the platen will go down part way and the motor cuts out .

Phillip for Model Number TU8000XRPI

ANSWER Hi Philip. You need to find out if it is an electrical or a mechanical issue? Remove the drive chain from the motor and see if the motor part # W10439651 will run as needed regulrily. The motor switch is part # W10439651. If it does without hesitation then look at the chain drive/ gears kit part 882699. Make sure the power screw is not binding in any way. If the power nut is needed it is part # 777533. Thank You.
