Or this, American DJ Takes the Mirror Ball High Tech, which may be the same product.
Freaky indeed - I just found this forum by googling my problem, which is that my disco ball rotator (which I'm using for a totally different purpose) changes direction when turned on and off and on again. Only it is not even consistent in that - sometimes I have to turn it off and on again 3 times to get it to change, sometimes it changes every time. It's driving me mad! Any idea how to stop it doing this or am I just going to have to get someone to check the direction it's going every morning when they turn my gallery installation on? The motor itself is sealed, so I'm guessing I've got no options here... Thanks for any advice!kiwitechgirl, had this thread remained in the Question of the Day, you would have won, (in my experience). See the wiki entry, ghost load.

Now, has anyone ever had a rotator that, every time power was cycled, it spun in the opposite direction? I once hung ten or so for a party in a ballroom, and I swear this was happening. Naturally we were on a time crunch so I couldn't prove it, but it was odd to see mirror balls spinning in two directions. (I then discovered the turntable in my microwave spins the opposite direction each time. Freaky!)
Hi, I am also having a problem with 2 mirror balls spinning in different directions. I am trying to get them to spin in the same direction. I have already bought these motors. Is there anyway to modify them to "add" this extra part(shorted turn?)
