When I let go of the handle (bail) to stop the Ego Snow Blower, it makes a loud squealing sound. Is this normal? My guess is that it is, and it's the sound of a braking mechanism grabbing the drive belt. But can anyone confirm this?  Thanks.

The brake mechanism is actually an electronic brake. No mechanical brake
