    Re: Gecko drive

    did you check the encoder per step 3 in the instructions (before connecting the motor)

    it sounds like the encoder isn't working - could be defective or lost power or bad wiring or bad connector to the encoder

    That's what happens when the encoder is not working, Unplugging it is the same as it not working.
