  • gear box tripping out

    hi all,
    ive got a 82/90 chasis,that when i turn it on it trips the mains switch,ive found out that its the table gearbox thats always makes the machine trip out,ive moved the chasis to another lane and it does the same thing,its fine until the table moves.
    any ideas,
    thanks

    It sounds like a pinched wire when CR#2 pulls in. Pull the chassis bottom cover and look for a bare wire.

      if the table plug causes the mains to trip you probably have an earth fault.As you have been able to trace it to the table , i think you may have a wire shorting from the motor plug to the chassis.Try putting the sweep plug in the table motor and seeing if it runs ok. if it still trips out the short is in the motor itself.if it is the cable check in the wireway to the chassis for a trapped wire.
      good luck.

        thanks for the advice,
        but ive put a different chasis on the lane i had the problem with,and it runs fine,the problem follows the chasis,not the gearbox
        thanks

          You could have a shorted SSSW for the table motor. Also check your receptacle at the chassis for a short.

            Hi evertonfc. check that the capacitor in the chassis is not shorting and also the mains in the chassis to the table relay.the relays are sealed so if it is the relay, there is not a lot you can do.
            sorry.

              Dave,

              We have a local company we claim to be able to fix almost anything electrical. If you want I can get their number for you. I've only used them once, because I've always felt the complicates stuff should be left to those with the correct resources, and they charged £200.00 to fix a C90 control board. But maybe you could arrange a no fix no fee deal with them.
