  • option front ball return

    when the ball gets near the top of lift at the top v wheel it is sluggish on the way out.i have the tall lifts for about 4 years now and this lift is the only one slow out.the belt has the right torque.any ideas on this problem.i will check your replies tommorrow.

    Is the top V wheel coming apart?

      the holes at the top of the options are not round but more of an "oval" if you lift them up to increase the distance the balls will have less resistance and come out faster.


      my 2nd oppinion is to just install it with craftsman tools because that turns them into ball cannons.
      When you know what to do, everything is easy.

        Have you tried swapping the motor with another ball lift? we had the opposite some time ago fitted new motor to ball lift and couldn't work out why was launching balls out... motor was turning too fast.... maybe yours is turning too slow??

        just a thought....

            Is the motor you put in wired for 220V? If your powerlift is connected to a 120V supply and you put in a new motor from AMF, it could be wired wrong. The motors come from AMF wired for 220V, not sure why, but this would explain why it would have trouble getting balls through the lift.

              Cuz they LOVE Australia and that's the voltage we use......

              But yeah i'd bet anything on like TJ said you guys are probably running 120V setup and motor is wired for 220V......

                My guess would be because that's the 'safest' option. That is, if they wired all the motors for 120V and someone (like us in Australia) with a 220/240V supply forgot to change it prior to use, they'd probably blow the motor up.

                  That would be awesome!

                      I thought only a Kiwi would do something like that?!?

                        That's good, at least it was something simple!

                        If you have anymore of these new motors that have not been used, might want to make sure they are all wired correctly now so that when they do eventually get used this never happens again, I did that with ours and am glad I did it! Seems like such a silly thing to have happen, doesn't it?

                            That very thing happened here, only not with a motor, our Video game swipe card server come from the U.S. and they forgot to cha nge the power supply inside to 220V and when we plugged it in and turned it on ... ***BOOOM*** went the server

                              It must run on smoke, because after all the smoke came out, it does'nt run anymore.
