Hello from KOXR,
I have had intermittent problems with my CH Products- Pro Pedals. The
problem that I was having was when I was trying to taxi, the AC would steer
in a random fashion. I tried to recalibrate the pedals, but that would'nt
help. I would suggest that you try to recalibrate your pedals. If that
doesn't help go the CH Products website for more information and check and
see if your pedals are still under warranty. In my case, my pedals were out
of warranty, I had to replace a potentiometer (part number HP100, 100K) that
controls the rudder function. There is one potentiometer for each brake
function I believe that is a 150K ohm value.
So, what I would do is try to recalibrate, if that doesn't work go to the CH
Products website, check your warranty, and if your out of warranty see how
much they charge for repair. If you have the neccessary skills you could
repair the pedals yourself. When I repaired my pedals there wasn't a
schematic to work from; I took mine apart starting from the foot-pedals and
noted how everything was put together by making a drawing. The screws are
self-tapping so you have to be very careful our you'll strip the plastic
treads. you'll need an ohmmeter to center the poteniometer.
I must say that trying to make your own repairs takes skill and knowledge.
Your problem could be just a loose connection somewhere. So, please take
