We were wondering if unlimited amounts of nonfunctional decoration was allowed? AND!! one of our globe motors isn’t acting properly. 3 of the 4 can not be turned by hand. however, today one of ours presented something different–you can spin it by hand with no problem!! when power is applyed, it still has the strenghth of a small mule team. What could be the problem? we need a solution of some sort, and no, it’s not a coupler or transtorque slipping–we ruled that out. Any advice you could give us would be very helpful. Thanks.
