I have a 2020 MTH Railking Santa Fe Dash 8 that seems to have been damaged due to over flooding the smoke unit. Smoke was coming from the sides and bottom of the engine, not from the top. I turned the engine over to drain any excess fluid. The engine has less than 6 hours use. When I restarted the engine it moved forward and stopped. I checked the Z-1000 transformer to see if the fuse was tripped. It was not. When I attempted to restart the engine it was silent except when I removed power from the track and I heard a high pitch sound which sounded as if the capacitors were discharging. On the third attempt the engine made a clicking sound. I immediately cut the power.
I removed the shell and cleaned out the oil based residue and thoroughly cleaned the smoke unit. When I attempted to restart the engine, my TIU would not acknowledge the engine. I tested the TIU with other engines and it’s fine.
Please advise a reputable place to send the engine to for repairs. I used Stockyard Express in the past to repair my TIU and it is still working well. Please help.
