. . . that I wanted to swap with someone for a Digitrax DN163. Glad I didn't.

Turns out this particular NCE N14A0 decoder is troubled. Can't keep the CVs in its NVRAM, and it has a nasty habit of not moving the locomotive while at the same time a high-pitched squeal is coming from the motor, usually in forward, but sometimes in reverse as well. The locomotive just sits there and "eeeks".

When it does work -- usually after I have to re-enter all the user-configurable CV values -- the factory-installed Atlas SD-7/9 chassis it's in runs smoothly and quietly.

Never had this issue with Digitrax, TCS or even other NCE decoders.

Any suggestions about the squealing and the loss of CV values? Do I just have a lemon here?
