CA or CI Average Current Limit, OR Instantaneous Current Limit

If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached,
the unit will return to standby mode and display either “CA” for average current limit trip, or “CI” for instantaneous current limit trip.
Average current trip occurs if there is a 2-second average of current draw greater than 5.55 Amps at the motor windings.
Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 Amps instantly at the motor windings.
➔ This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller.
➔ Overloading the unit may cause this problem.
■ Press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.

Usual occurrance with these, is the boot seal around the U-joint leaks and water siezes up the mechanism and the motor binds
whip the washplate outta there and see if that isn't the case
