Easy Fix
by: Anonymous

Bruce, There is a switch on top of the back side of the motor that stalls the motor instantaneously when shiffting out of gear. You can see it move when shifting in and out of gear. It works on a cam when shifting in and out of gear. This is necessary due to the torque that must be equalized that has been built up by the drive while in gear. Either that switch is defective and can be replaced by you with minimal effort or you have a problem somewhere in the wiring. If you have any electrical and mechanical in you, it's easy to check out and also an easy fix.

Good Luck
Chuck
