    Can someone help me? When I turn off the simtolls, the motor continues to rotate, it does not return to zero.

    Hi!
    I had a similar problem in one of the motors and it was motivated by a wrong welding in pot´s wiring.
    Change one pot by the other (if the secod one works fine) and if the problem goes away , you got it¡.
    Good luck¡¡
