I've run it at least an hour without a lock.  Tried running it open 
and adjusting C217, but still no lock.

I've opened it up and spun C217 in 45 degree steps--still no lock.

I'm seeing about 80 mA on the 5 V input, 1.6 A dropping to about 620 
mA on the 15 V input.

Any other suggestions before I contact the seller?
