Honda HS760TS - Joy-Stick issue

I recently bought a snow blower with some issues. Most of them are solved now, but one remain.

The joy-stick is only controling the snow discharge chute works in only in two of four directions. (Rotate works, but the deflector is not moving)

I have swapped the wires and established that both actuators/motors are working.
This means that something is wrong in the wiring/electrical components between battery and motor....

Does anyone have a wiring diagram, or perhaps better, a good suggestion of how this problem may be corrected ?
Where can I order spareparts to this old model (from 2006)

Best regards Per Inge

It sounds like dirty or burned contacts if the switch is a low voltage momentary switch.

Have you looked at the honda site to see if a manual is available? I think all you need is the
serial number of the machine to enable you to down load a copy.

If I remember correctly people were having problems with some of the joysticks. I would just replace it outright.

If your inclined to rip into it a can of spray electrical parts cleaner might do it. I had a propane Mr. Heater fan stop working. I traced it to the switch. After taking the switch apart I found moth worms made a nest in the contacts! I never would have believed it. The silk from their nest was enough to break the contact. Bug bombs are your friend when storing stuff. I stored birdseed in the shed and the critters were from there. So you never know what you might find when you get into these electrical pieces / parts.

This is a warranty issue . honda should take care of it if still under warranty. Oh, I see this is a 2006 model? I thought these did not come out until 2015.
