Is the the SQO instruction rung also true during first scan? Perhaps it is resetting and immediately advancing to the first step?

Is the RES instruction in a routine that is always being called?

I concur with two previous comments:

Ground loop is probably the cause (root cause probably related to the DC drive/motor).

It's more likely that the ground bonding is failing somewhere and not dropping the voltage fully. For stuff like this, I like the Syrelec liquid level control relays.
