  • Flex lane machine

    What's up everybody! I have a problem with my flex stopping in the pit every so often and never on the same lanes.. I'm unsure if I should adjust the (ACCEL) trimpot a 1/4 turn clockwise or if I should be looking else where? any input/help would be great

    Errors? What are the error messages when this happens?
    Do you use pin deck treatment?

      it was calling a forward travel error...
      I don't use pin deck treatment..
      I adjusted the front drive chain last night. it was slightly loss, ran the machine today (24 lanes) with 0 forward travel errors.. I have to run it again tonight. so I will post my outcome this evening..

        Check your forward speeds and also try blowing the carbon dust out of the motor brushes on the drive motor.

          Good deal. If that chain adjust worked, might not be a bad idea to check your motor speeds and do an auto adjust to tweek it all down. pg. 121 or so in the manual.

                It's a factory (kegel) installed setting calibration program.

                    Start on page 40 in the manual. Talks/walks you through it and what to look for.

                        Get the maintenance poster from Kegel and put it up where you store your machine. It lists all the maintenance schedules from daily to annually and you can keep track/make notes with a dry erase marker. I check off maintenance performed and also record the weekly oil and cleaner calibration.

                          my flex was doing the same but what I found it was the wash cloth did not have enough slack on it when washing so when it reached the back of the deck the wash cloth did not drop down to stop the macihine from falling off the back of the deck so I adjusted the cloth unroll timeing which allows more cloth to unwind more often which in turn lets the cloth fall of the pinback and them it will hit the safety switch to stop the minchine from falling of the back of the deck. but don't adjust to munch or the cloth will hit the lane panel at the head when coming of
