  • Spot Solenoids

    Is there a way to test a spot solenoid?
    I had a machine refusing to spot pins, I could manually move the latch and it would spot pins....but on its own it wouldn't. I tried several chassis's still refused to spot pins. So I'm assuming the solenoid is bad? I'm waiting on a solenoid. Is there a way to test the one I have?

    Casey, just make a test cable out of an old lamp cord or something similar and put terminals on the end opposite of the plug. Put the terminals on the solenoid and just plug it in to a receptacle.(you can use the Russell Stroll plug) If it doesn’t pull in it's bad.

      Casey, Ed's reply is good. You could also put an ohm meter on each terminal. You should read some resistance. No resistance indicates an open coil. Good Luck.

        You might want to make sure the Spotting Relay is good.

          Is this problem on a MP chassis machine? If so you may want to change the machine circuit breaker. This "does" cause this problem. Hope this helps. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]
          Prevent the problems. Don't do crash repairs.
