Title: NCE Power Cab throttle issues
Post by: kevincasey on February 25, 2019, 11:23:10 AM
the issue I have with the Power Cab is initially, for speed, it gave my even increments of 4 for the "increase fast and /decrease fast" speed buttons, and also "increase/decrease" of 1 each time you hit it for the other 2 buttons, and the speed wheel in the middle of these 2 sets of buttons  -  now, I got 3 locos running, and they all give me that 1 "increase/decrease", and the 4 "increase/decrease", with a maximum of 28 - next time I use the Power Cab, out of the blue, and with me giving no further input, the locos starting running even increments of 10, with a maximum of 126 - I preferred this, but the damn Cab goes back to "1 and 4, with a max of 28" on it's own - it has gone back and forth a few times now - the locos still operate fine under either speed settings, but I prefer to stay at the "10, max 126" specs -

This isnít a Bachmann product so Iíll keep it brief.

1. Join the NCE forum and ask the question.  Youíll get an answer.
2.  Call NCE.  They are friendly and accommodating. Iíve sent my NCE cabs back several times for repairs (after dropping it usually ) or upgrades and theyíve never charged for it.

Advice:  have a spare cab so you can keep on operating while repairs are in progress.

I have the Power Cab and I agree with Trainman203. NCE repaired for me free because I had registered with them. Cab back light.
There is an NCE Group. It use to be a Yahoo Group but has a new name. This might be it.

Good luck.
