  • A2 will not detect strike

    Real quick guys, have league going on and have a lane that won't detect a strike, acts like standing pins and goes to 2nd ball. Any quick ideas? Thanks

    You can try lowering the detector tube a 1/16 and see where that gets you.

      Strange turn of events, it has now started detecting strikes. 1st have of game 1 no strike detection, ever since has been normal. Will look at rod to make sure nothing is binding or something else.

        Make sure the tube and detector disc is lubricated and that the tube clamp isn't overtightened.

        When it happens again have a look at the strike cam follower and see if it is indeed being blocked out at or just after 90, or if it's being held up at the equivalent high of the cam.

          Will do, thanks. I went through the machine this morning and cleaned and lubricated again. I had done so last night, so I'm thinking it began working once the lubricant worked into the tube. Has been working fine ever since.
