  • silver bullet problem

    Here's the prob. Machine runs so far down the lane and then stops. Display says encoder drive error. I'm told it is the speed control box causing the problem from one guy, and the amf ( I think means Adios Mother %^$#&^ ) tech says it is the drive motor in either case it cost bucks ($900 for one and $1000 for the other). Hard to believe a machine 4 years old and only does 12 lanes a day can take a dump like this. Right now I'm using 100B. Thanks for the help.

    Ron,

    We had a similar problem not too long ago. It doesn't happen anymore, but this is what we did. We swapped out the box on the 7-pin side of the machine. Also, we swapped out the power cord. Not for sure what was going on. I hope this gives you a little help. If I am not specific enough, let me know.

    Bye for now,

    Joey

      Thanks for responding. I changed the speed control box, and it did not change. We allready changed the cord. I don't know where to go from here except maybe processor.

        Ron I had one of the first Silver bullitts ever made actualy it was this first one made. Any how we had the same problem with ours and we found that the distance counter had gone bad and we changed it and the problem went away.
