Default Jet mini v/s issues

My Jet variable speed is stuck on high speed. Isn't a belt issue. Any idea's about repairs/trouble shooting?

Jay, sorry to hear about this. I don't have the VS, so I can't even begin to offer troubleshooting advice. You may want to call Steve at WC and see if he or anyone there has any ideas or suggestions...

Couldn't happen at a worse time. I have the hots to turn stuff lately and now I can only think about it!

Sounds like a Jet Cust. Service call to me as it may be a circuit board problem or... Is your lathe still under warrenty and if so, Jet C.S. will quickly take care of the issue, if not under warrenty, I'm sure they'll be able to solve your problem and put you on the right track quickly. Jet C.S. is difficult to beat when it comes to customer assistance IMHO!

Thanks. My lathe is about 4 years old. I opened up the switch box and it looks like the inside of a computer! Guess I won't be fixing this myself!

Not sure how long your Jet was/is under warranty, but the new ones have a FIVE year warranty... Might check with Jet C.S. to check on your lathe's warranty before putting out $$$ for repairs that 'might' still be covered... Good Luck and safe turning!!!
