  • Table motor

    What is the fix for a table motor coasting backwards after it stops, only after 2nd ball, I've advanced the table as far up as I dare go. I also noticed the table goes up a little farther after 1st ball than after 2nd ball, which I think is correct.

    Check bottom table contactors

    Check carbon motor brakes if table is "chattering", meaning the contactors kick in every second or so to bring the table back up to zero from a coast.

      Probably something in the braking mech of the motor most likely, when they're worn they tend to make the table drift after spotting a rack and not as often (if at all) after a respot cycle. We have national motors with brushes at my house, anyway whatever braking mech you have on your motors check them and replace if necessary, also check your cams with the gauge and make sure they're all ok. Out of adjustment cams will also cause the table to drift. Good luck

      All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/
