  • Foul cycle with disabled unit ??

    After numerous respot calls, I removed the 6ns7( or whatever the # is) ...the 'radio tubes' between the green jars...this usually disables the foul cycle...but, #3 still thinks it's a foul sometimes !!

    I have to turn the unit off to prevent occasional phantom foul cycles.

    is this an omega-tek problem ????????
    removing the tubes should kill the foul(always has before)
    I never had a "10" ;..but ,one night after closing,..I did five " 2's" !

    6SN7 is a dual triode tube---you MUST have the original 82-8's! Do you have a manual for them? Let me know. I have one I can make a copy of for ya.

      Yes you can have a pinspotter foul with no foul from the unit....all that has to happen is a grounded wire.

      Unplug the wires in the AMC box that go to the machine and you will never happen again.

      Most bowlers deny fouls anyway.

      All machines at the palace have had the foul wires disconnected at the AMC box.
