  • Ball Accelerator not working

    Having a problem with ball accelerator. It will not start when you turn the machines on. I have replaced both relays but still have nothing. If I plug motor into an extension cord, the motor runs fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It sounds like there is no power to the relay box for the relays to switch. You need a meter.

      The power for your front relays starts in the back. check and see if they work. sometimes the connector on accelerator box gets loose.

        The motor won't start with either machine of the pair on? A couple of things to check. First one, are the cannon plugs that supply the 24V for the relays connected to the electrical box? I have disconnected one or both of those before when doing certain maintenance on machines and have forgotten to connect 'em when I finish. The other is to make sure that you're getting voltage to the accelerator motor through the drop cord from the ceiling. That power is usually on a separate circuit from the pinsetters and there should be circuit breakers for the accelerators in one of the distribution panels in the service aisle. As stated above, use a meter to do some of the troubleshooting.

          It ended up being a bad breaker on the wall. It was weird because it's the same breaker for the machine and ball accelerator, and the machines were working fine. Thanks for the help.
