    AIT Optima Edger - Who can fix?

    So our edger is acting badly. It just sticks on "Roughing Process" moving back and fourth over one small edge of the lens.

    Is this reparable?

    It looks like the roughing wheel is not spinning ? Have you called AIT (now Luneau Technologies), they are usually very good at diagnosing over the phone. If the wheel is not cutting, no material is being removed, therefore the sensor reading the lens size is not changing. Its stuck in the roughing cycle. Check your fuses also.

    It is definitely because the wheel isn't running, I'm surprised the AIT doesn't sense that the motor isn't turning on and shows an error, but either way find out why the wheel isn't turning and your problem is solved.

    Hopefully they have parts. The edger manufacturer went out of business 2 years ago.
