    SM 52 error issue

    I have a sm 52 that is throwing several errors on the screen. The main one is something relating to "earth motor" ground. Does anyone know what this is
    referring to?

    Earth leakage monitor or ground fault will usually put up a F60 code. You can go into the electrical cabinet to see if the monitor is tripped. Its the only yellow component in the box usually on the right hand side. If it is tripped sometimes you can reset it. Typically it will not keep you from running but you should still have a tech check it out.

    Check also the spare part number which is printed on it. Usually you can find it on the right side. The index numbers up to /02 can create false positives...
