  • Bin Switch Failure, or is it?

    Ok so I feel my purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others. I'm always the guy that says "ya'll watch this". So tonight one of the lanes was setting 1/2 racks and I checked to see it was getting the 9 pin switch signal. Ok simple enough, took the switch off lane one (I have no parts so dead lanes 1 and 2 are used) and install on lane 7.
    Now this is where the warning to others comes into play. I was taught better, when its a switch diagnose the damn thing don't just start changing out parts. A simple ohm test would confirm its the switch and my decision. Well when I put on the different switch it still had a full bin indication. Now I check both switches and find they are good. So what's the issue?

    The paddle bolt was lose and not making contact with the switch when empty, so a 7/16" wrench and socket fixed the problem. Lesson here to me is do what I was taught and quit taking short cuts less one day it kills me.
