  • Power Lift - No Power

    Im a general contractor and also I recently began working as a lane mechanic for an alley who's mechanic of 15 yrs quit on them. So anything I've learn is off this forum and from just figuring it out. My question is. On our 15/16 lanes ball lift, the old motor kept slipping the belt. Come to find out the mount was broken. I changed mounts, and the owner bought a new motor(unnecessary) the old one worked fine. Anyways the motor plugged in works fine. I got it installed in the ball return area and there isnt any power getting to the motor or anywhere in the ball return area. I've been looking for fuses, changed relays, you name it. I'm pretty stumped on the problem am I missing something?

    High voltage (should be 120 volts) comes live into the relay box unless something is wrong with the building wiring. If a breaker on the wall is tripped you should have 3 or 4 power lifts not working. Inside the relay box you should have 2 relays and a toggle switch. You should have one relay close when 15 is on and the other close when 16 is on. If neither relay closes check for 24 volts AC at the relay coil terminals and then chase those circuits back to the pinsetters. You may also have a fuse and then 120 volts either directly to a hand dryer fan or through a transformer to a 24 volt hand dryer fan.
