  • Pit Run

    Here's a nice one.

    When i turn the master CB switch on the backend panel off, the pit is still running.

    I tried different chassis, CBs and even rewired the BE gearbox supply.

    The pindeck light goes off and no cycle buttons work but the only way to cut the power to the pit is by tripping the mains input to the russell stoll.???

    Someone wired it direct; what type of machine?

        check the b.e. motor relay in the chassis. You try another chassis in the machine ?

          sorry should have paid attention to the question. I see you have tried another chassis.

            I think it might have something to do with the wiring in the Russel-Stoll plug. I remember the mechanic in my neighboring center telling me about it one time. I'm sure Jerry or Coors or one of the other experienced tech's will know.
            Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

              C1-41,42,47 are hot from RS plug.
              C1-45,46 are the switched hot for BE motor.

              Maybe there is a short between 46 and 47 at the plug. Or 47 was swopped with 45 or 46 during a rewire progect.

              This is for 5board elco chassis.

                With JJ's data, check your C1 plug for cracks where voltage can leak through. If your machine was working correctly, your problem is most likely a broken C1 plug.

                  I agree with the above. The problem has to be in the c-1 on the machine side of course since you have already changed the chassis. One of your pins is arcing somehow. An oxydized plug block could cause this. Change the machine side plug block checking and replacing any burnt pins. That definitly should work.

                    I had this problem on 30's. The CB was not in the circuit. Had to rewire the CB. Look at the systemic to see if it is or not.

                      Thanks everyone.

                      Problem solved. It turned out to be the c1 plug. I replaced it and repinned evey wire to be on the safe side. All ok. Whooppeeee
