Sometimes the most simplest of fixes is verifying that you have voltage at your outlet and that you have voltage getting to the motor.

Check the motor's overload button; reset if necessary.
Take resistance readings:
  • start capacitor
  • run capacitor
  • and motor

If anyone of their specs are out of whack, that's the component that is defective and will need to be replaced.

I've looked at photos of the Rotary 6, and what I did with mine seems relevant, so..........

I found that Hills don't sell new line kits direct anymore, so I got some poly core line from Mitre 10, 60m for $30.

Study how the original line was strung through the clips and how it was tied at each end, and you will find that you have to remove 4 plastic wedges which secure the line in the end caps, these things

The wedge is not shown. You just push it out upwards. Then cut away and pull out the old line from all the clips, these things

Then tie the line onto one end cap as it was before, and restring the whole hoist. To get the line into the clips, you can carefully lever a bit with a screwdriver.

Don't worry too much about tension yet, just leave the line a bit slack on each run. You will have to pass the coil of line over the top of the arms many times. Finally cut it off after the final run, leaving enough line hanging down to secure the arms in a bunch when the hoist is folded up.

Make the final knot as it was, and then, without skewing the arms sideways, remove any slack going around and outwards, and finally pull in and tighten the final knot at the outer end, and replace the 4 wedges.

The line will stretch, so you may need this final step once more.

You need to remove the right side cover, indicut knob, crank, and cutterlock knob. Remove the top cap (4 screws) crank the motor asssembly to the top exposing two hidden screws in side wall, remove those and the two at the top and remove sidewall. . Tension adjustemnt screw is right near the motor pulley. Loosen it and push motor inward while sliding belt over pulleys. It is a little tough getting the belt in between the pulley and main carriage. If you attempt to put the belt on one pulley at a time, you are working a diagonal, which is longer that the inline dimension. Apply a drop of liquid dish detergent to each pulley for lubrication. Start the edge of the belt onto both pulleys; making sure the splines & grooves are aligned on both pulleys. Slowly work the belt on, 32nd of an inch at a time one pulley, then the other. Wash the soap off when you are done'
