Thread: Stuck skew

    Default Stuck skew


    My dish's skew is stuck in horizontal. How do I get to the motor to get it to work again.

    This used to happen before, and i just used to play with the skew (hori - vert) and would become right again. But this time it hasn't.

    Please help!

    Just buy a new lnb skew motor ....remove and replace the old one . They only cost around ten dollars and are easy to fit. These only last a few years anyway .

    PS You should test it by connecting the two wires before attaching to the lnb .
    It should rotate if it is working ok. Swich the wires and it should rotate in the other direction. You control the movement from the skew control on your receiver
