I have an older Foredom flexshaft. When the foot control
started to snap, crackle, and heat up, I purchased a new CFL-15
control. However, it too snaps/crackles and heats up. Does anyone
have any thoughts as to what is wrong? I'm afraid to use it.
I’d check the brushes in the motor-head (heck, replace them on spec,
I’ve seen motor brushes that looked and tested good, but wouldn’t
work properly). If those are good, try to wiggle the prongs on the
plug end, it those are loose, you may need to replace the plug end.
Basically, it sounds like a high resistance connection somewhere in
the motor unit or power cord.
