  • Dumping oil

    About every 3 or 4 lanes, my phoenix wick machine leaves a puddle of oil at the foul line. You know it's going to happen because there is a heavy streak of oil that covers 9,10 and 11 that sometimes runs through the pin deck. I'm thinking that the float in the trough is bad, but nowhere in the manual does it say how to change it. Has anyone had this problem? And if so, how do I change it? I'm pulling my hair out.

      My guess is your tank is overfilled

        King, it doesn,t matter if the tank is full or half empty, and it won't always happen. I've had it happen every few lanes, and then not happen for the next 15 lanes.
