  • 8270 pin setter problem

    Hi I have a pin setter that acts crazy. It will go fine for a while then all of sudden it goes to pick up the pins and just stop right at the top of the pins.
    At first we thought it was an out of range but no the pin setter just stopped. we have to crank thw pin setter up and it goes for maybe a few shots and stops again.
    If we turn it off and not use it for a while it will go a whole game before it stops. Anyone have any ideas. thanks

    1 TA1 micro switch is out of adjustment, or needs to be replaced
    2 Sweep is drifting when it goes to guard causing an interlock
    3 Sweep / table interlocking cams are out of adjustment or micro switches need to be replaced

        How do you stop a sweep from drifting on a 8270

          Where is it drifting? Is it just at 0 or everywhere?

              With your crazy lane, have you checked to see if the off spot switch is faulty, out of adjustment or a wire has come off and may occasionally ground on the machine making it think there is an off spot??

                Are you sure it's at 0 and not first guard? Sounds like your having an interlock issue which means the sweep and table are trying to occupy the same space.

                  I’d also check your capacitors in the wireway. Does it start coasting straight away from the first time it’s running or when the motor starts to get warm?

                    its the guard position. it comes down hits the lanes and moves toward the pins. it does not go under the pins

                      Usually its a games and a few frames before it starts, Than after that it could go two, three frames before it does it again.
