    Jeff, what kind of pin setters do you have these installed with (30's or 70's)?

        Are these membrane switches or actual push button?

        I used to have a problem with the membranes on the Options lift and have since disconnected them. It was to the point I had one taking a crap every 2 weeks. I called AMF and they said to install some RPO relay kit in my BE control boxes...what a PITA! I've suggested to some other guys just replacing the sensitive membranes with push buttons.

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">This is the same reason I asked...if these are installed on 30's you must have the relay kit installed or the button will work intermittently. I was told (by AMF tech support) that is you have 70's you don't need the relay installed. We ended up doing what Kat mentioned and installed the original doorbell type buttons in place of the membrane switches.
