  • G110V2 or G220V2 - Questions on Cruise Control and other feature

    Hello everyone,

    I am not sure this question has been brought up before but I am unable to find the answer I am looking for so I have to make a post to ask here.


    I have watch plenty of youtube videos and posts that demonstrate the cruise control feature of the Meguiar's DA Polisher G110V2 (or G220V2 for the place I am living at).


    Typical scene in the video is the user turns on the machine, it spins, then applies pressure on top, and the sound of the machine changes, which is claimed to be an indication of cruise control in action (I do not doubt that), and then pressure released, the sound of the machine changes again to the state like the beginning.


    Posts explaining the cruise control feature typically just telling the readers that there is a circuit in the machine, once it senses the pad rotation is about to bog down, it feeds more torque to the motor in an attempt to keep the pad rotating. It does not explain what means the circuit uses to sense the pad is about to bog down though (I do not blame that since this is more like electrical/electronic discussion). There is also no explanation on how far the cruise control can help at each speed setting used by the user.


    So I have to make assumption here.


    I am assuming the cruise control will automatically increases the speed setting when it is triggered on to a higher speed setting than the one the user is currently using. For example, if I was running at speed 3 on the dial, I press on the pad till it almost bog down, then the cruise control increase it to 4, maybe even 5 or 6 if bog down still continue to be sensed by the circuit.

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    When you apply pressure on the machine, you are slowing down the OPM's from the pressure itself. The machine and "cruise control feature" then works to keep the OPM's at the selected speed setting, not above it. The machine will not go above the selected speed setting due to an increase in pressure.

    Hope this helps.

        I have a problem regarding my meguairs G220v2 it's the EU version of G110v2. Same machine diffrent voltage.
        The machine will normally work fine at speed 1 and 6. But when I'm running at speed 3-4 it will start hunting the rpm after a while and never pick up stable speed agian. And somtimes it will just stall and you have to restart it. shareit vidmate

          Hi takeseven,

          Sorry to hear about the trouble. Unfortunately these machines have not been made for several years. Even when they were made, we did not offer any repair services. You can basically try changes the brushes or taking it to a shop which works on electric power tools.
