Excuse the lack of lighting, but I blew the main fuse and am waiting for more to be delivered.

Initial issue: Reels 1 & 2 don't spin after handle pull. Reel 3 sometimes spin. LED error code shows Reel 2 error, but Reel 1 also doesn't spin.

While messing with this (all power off) I was manually trying to trigger the handle pull and look at the reel brakes release. When I engage the pull trigger the reel brakes disengage, but right after I release the handle the fan spins but the reel brakes engage immediately. Sometimes Reel 3 freely spins and locks in timing with the fan stopping, but for the most part once the handle is fully pulled all reel brakes engage immediately so nothing will spin while the fan is going.

Should these reel locks be staying disengaged? Or am I missing something?

Step 1:
Handle up, all reel brakes engaged

Step 2:
Handle mechanism primed at highest point before completion, all reel brakes disengaged, fan begins spinning

Step 3:
Complete handle pull, reel brakes engage immediately, fan completes spin cycle
