Re: AP Mother board heating up

I don't believe the CP3 or4 controller should get warm at all yet alone almost hot. I would check two things.
First open up the controller and make sure there is no moisture inside or on the circuit board. look closely to see if any of the traces or components have shown signs of heating.
Second if the controller electronics look ok, leave play in the worm mesh and retry operating the mounts two axis. If there is no sign of heating then, re-mesh to the proper specs.
Hope this helps

Ok it's funny that the tolerance has become so less , whereas the Dec spur gear can be rotated freely , the RA can do so for half a turn on either side , loosening a wee bit further causes a play , in fact the gear box actually moves a tiny bit when reversing east west direction at 1200x . I've left it at a point where there is no play in gear box and able to turn the spur gear freely for half a turn . Let me test tonight to see if it heats up . Question should the mother board show no increase in temperature at all ? Or is it ok to be just warm ?
