Delta Speed Controller problems

Roger
>I have a Delta 46-755X 16 Variable Speed Lathe that started having speed control problems after about 2 months of use. When running the lathe at 3000 rpm then stopping and restarting (with the on and off buttons) it would spin up to about 2500 rpm and then rapidly slow down to about 3-400 rpm. Turning the speed control knob down to around 2500 and back up to 3000 rpm resulted in the proper speed. Delta sent a repair service out and replaced the speed controller. The new controller experiences the same problem when cycling the lathe on and off about two out of every ten times. Does any one have this same lathe, and have you experienced this problem. If so, how did you remedy the situation?

Thanks

Roger
