  • Luster King

    What do you guys know about them? There was one in my center when we got here...I have a big ball of wax also...although when you stick a ball in the machine, the door doesn't want to close all the way on its own (about last inch) and the ball doesn't rotate in the machine...it just sits there...but the machine is making all sorts of noises like the buffers are going....any help will be much appritiated...thanks in advance...

    The ball is turned via the heavy chain on the left side turning a shaft that has A-2 turret gears turning the ball on the rubber oscillators inside the ball door.
    If it's an orignal King, it has a ball door motor under the front with about 8 cams and snap switches on it for timing and control circuits. the ball door motor and ball door opening linkages are a weak link in the system.
    I have about 21 machines in centers that I have put the Zot conversion on, eliminating the ball door motor and switches. A little salty, but you can turn that ball cleaner into a profit center if you convert it, add a dollar bill acceptor and charge a minimum of $1 for 2 minutes.

      What does a conversion normally cost?

        Zot has different pricing for the extent you want to change the machine. All mine have the sides, top and front cosmetic kits. But the electronics and customer display is the chief conversion to eliminate the stepper, coin acceptor and ball door motor.

            Here is their web site. But the catalog page is for the full machine. You'll have to call them or request a catalog to see the various kits available for the Lustre King.

              Check if buffer is pushing ball off of cradle. This can cause door to remain open. Also all the rest of the causes previously mentioned.
