    Have a Pat Trap that quit oscillating on auto. It will move in manual. Changed the relay, but that didn't help. Any suggestions for things to check?

    Check your auto/manual toggle switch. If there are no loose wires on it spray some wd40 or similar in the sswitch on the toggle end and exercise it a few times to make sure the contacts are working properly. We have the same problem quite frequently. There could be other causes but this is the most common. $9000.00 machine $1.25 switch?

    To expand on what RWT said? Push the switch in and out numerous times to clear the contacts. You will feel some travel. If its been left in manual mode to long (doubles) this could be the problem.
    As advised above, call Chuck if this don't work
    Ide be careful with WD40,It can leave a residue that you don't need in cleaning contacts. CRC makes better products for cleaning contacts. Be carefull,
    Some CRC products will melt plastics.. Any oil I use is like a 3 in 1.
