Hello
I have a Massoth Switch Decoder with four switched outlets. However, S1 and S4 have stopped working whilst S 2 and S3 are Ok. Checked the CVs and can’t spot any errors. The point motor kicks when connected to S1 whilst checking the CVs. Any ideas?

What are the addresses for your decoder outputs?

It seems to work if you have a load on S1....

I assume you checked the wiring to the turnouts and turnout motors themselves.;) You could try a complete reset to ground zero. Check its operation. Then re-program to the switch addresses you want. As I mentioned elsewhere recently, I had to reset a similar decoder multiple times before I finally got it programmed to do what I wanted.

They are addressed as 1,2,3,4 and it just kicks when programming CVs
