Hola, I have an intermittent fault with my Satellite system. When I try to raise from the home position, it sometimes (I say sometimes, but most of the time), sticks after a little effort to raise. I then get three constant orange lights showing on the maxview box when this happens. I switch off then on again and the dish parks. The dish has only ever stuck once when fully raised and I had to switch the system on and off constantly until I got it parked. So, I sent the box to maxview, they tested it and have said that there is nothing wrong with it. They suggest a wiring or motor problem, which is probably correct. I worry that when I take it back to the dealer, they try it over a few days and it works every time; they then tell me there is nothing wrong with it without investigating further. So, before I do that, have any of you good folks experienced a similar issue. All help appreciated as always (y)

I had similar issue with my Maxview Seeker , kept getting an error code on the wireless remote display .
the problem was caused by one of the two multi plugs in the base of the satellite being damp and making an
intermittent bad connection .
Maxview were very helpful in helping to diagnose the fault and i unbolted the dish from the roof and disconnected the two multi plugs and the two satellite feed cables which was easy to do , I then sprayed the multi plugs with electrical switch cleaner and made sure they were firmly pushed back together reconnected the satellite feed cables and it was fixed

I too have problems with my Maxview. It takes what feels like ages before the dish rises from its parked position. I put this down to a stiff wrist when winding the handle.
