  • Sweep Coasts Past all Stop Positions

    Can anyone help with 82/70 SS Chassis...We have Omega-Tek upgrades...this chassis, when on a machine will not allow the sweep to come to a clean STOP.

    Has anyone had this problem and could you point me to a solution?

    Thank-you,
    Boss

      I’m assuming you moved the chassis to see if problem followed. If not this would be a good time as other things outside the chassis can cause your problem.

      If you’re sure its in the chassis, then King has given you the most common solution. In addition inspect your pins on the C1, particularly the 3rd row from the top.

        If I had to guess.....I'll agree with King ((that almost hurts :p ))...Contacts probleby need replaced. I always replace both uppers & lowers. Never just one.

          Contatcts for the sweep are the most common culprit for us. Change them out and check all C1 pins as mentioned when you do it. Odds are it's one of the 2 causing the problem.
          All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

            1st..Always Look Through The Motor Vent To See If The Switches Look Burnt On The Motor Head...Then Change Chassis(Relay or Contacts)

                people are on the right track, if the motor starts then the cent switches work, but if it dosent break, make sure rhe cent mech isnt popping back up late, if it is then it will close the contacts after the regenerative braking field has already died, inspect the contacts and wiring first tho

                  Thank-you all for your help! My mechanic came in Sunday. We had two Chassis doing exactly the same thing...strange but, true! Yes, on different lanes.

                  Started with contactor lower set as per King's suggestion...fixed 1 of the 2...then, re-inspected pins on the C-1 plug as per triac's suggestion...fixed!

                  Thank-you all, for your help...Thanks too, to BOWL-TECH for being here!
