snowstorm,

We had the exact same issue with our measuring system a few weeks back.  Changed the encoder a couple of times ( i was lucky enough to have spares) before finding out that there was a tiny break in the cable running from the HHM to the encoder.  Changed a $14 cable and all is good for now.
Lots of toys for working in the bush

the encoder came with a new cable. and the way its made you would have to take the encoder apart to change the cable. it plugs in on the inside of the cover

i found the problem. i took the new encoder out and the shaft was about a 1\16" to long. it hit the drive motor for the tracks. in doing so it pushed the shaft on the encoder up a bit. making it turn hard not good. so i ground a little off pulled the shaft out where it belonged. put it back in. it dosent work must have broke something inside. so i call the keto pro and says that yes it is the right part number and was unaware of the shafts being to long. so he is sending a replacement. coming out of of quebec i dont expect to have it till midweek.
