I was wondering about the balast or power supply from some previous posts I had read, I was hoping to figure out how to check and see which it might be. I messaged Brandon about a service manual. Today I took the unit out into the garage, removed the filters and pulled the top off of the case. Took the air compressor to it and blew out a couple small clouds of dust. Hoping this might make a difference. Unfortunately it did not. Took it back inside and plugged it in to find the same issue. I am not getting the heat warning light or anything. It just turns off with fan on high. After a minute or so of that it goes back to lamp/ready and you can turn it back on and go through the whole thing again. As I mentioned before I am new to this whole field and didn't realize what a beast I had purchased. (Maybe a lemon too) I am wondering if it is worth taking to a repair shop of some sort. And were would I find such a place? Would be nice if there was someplace local rather than shipping the thing.
