Do I need to buy anything else with this board?
No, the board is supplied with the relay. It is a stand alone part. As long as it is the board causing the problem nothing else will be needed.
My machine isn’t working, is it the board that is faulty?
No, not necessarily. It could be a number of reasons why the machine isn’t working. You made need a specialist to identify which component part is causing the machine not to work. Always check the fuse and electric supply first. It could be that your start – stop switches are faulty or one of the safety reed switches has failed. Sometimes it is something just as simple as loose connection or even the relay as worked itself loose and just need pushing back in.
How easy is it to fit?
The HC1 printed circuit board is quite simple to fit. Firstly isolate the chipper from the electric supply. Remove the base. The board is held in place by four small nuts. Remove these and the board will come away. It may be worth taking a picture at this point in case you need to refer back later. Then just exchange each wire one at a time to eliminate putting the wrong wire on the wrong connector.
Each terminal is clearly marked.
Is there a belt for this machine?
No the chipper is a gearbox drive and doesn’t require a belt.
