I have a softstarter that is intermittently stopping functioning as it is saying max number of starts have been reached. I have been informed that the motor hasn't been called for the maximum number of times. Therefore I cannot see what is causing this problem.

Can anyone let me know if they have had this problem before please.

Not seen this before..
But on the assumption the softstart is operating correctly and your informant is correct (number of starts/hr ?), is the starter circuit stopping and starting again almost immediately. The motor could be freewheeling which may not be noticeable.
