  • sweep problem

    I have a sweep issue that is whipping me. For some reason I have no sweep reverse. When the machine tries to go through a sweep reverse the sweep motor kicks out on overload. I replaced the sweep capacitors, the motor, sweep reverse switch, chassis, sweep switch and the white circuit breaker. I checked the wiring to the motor plug and it all seems good. I have had this problem before but I just cannot figure it out. Any help appreciated. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img]

    DOES THE MOTOR HEAD HAVE AN ELECTRICAL OR MECHANICAL START SWITCH?

        You replaced everything that needed replacing VAD. Recheck your wiring...can you swap plugs with the table or daisy chain a combo plug to test the motor cable? Did you check your wireway for anything wierd that may have fallen down there?
        The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

          You may have one of the new solid state start switchs on that sweep motor that requires you to re do some of the wiring in the wire way.

          Check all the wires in the motor plug, C-1 plug pins and wires, and for anything in the wire way that may have fell in.

            Re: sweep problem

            When you change from a mechanical to an electrical start switch you lose your sweep reverse , and so you have to rewire a couple of wires to regain your sweep reverse, what brand of Start Switch are you running?

              Assuming that you have put a combo on with a mechanical start switch that has been tested on another machine…I would guess 1 of three things (since you changed everything).

              1.) Your sweep cable could have a break inside the cable most likely where the strain relief is. I would kill the main CB on the wall and do a continuity check on each wire from the plug to each terminal.

              2.) Somebody was monkeying around and got some wires mixed up inside the wireway. Compare wiring with another machine that works. Also check that the wiring is correct on the sweep reverse switch.

              3.) Do you have a reverse relay located in the mechanics control box? Could be a bad relay, socket or power going to it coming from the BPP plug. I’m a little weary that this is a problem because the sweep reverse switch over rides the relay pulling in. This relay is only pulled in from the scoring logic.

              If you find that mechanical start switch works but not the solid state switch does not then wiring modifications need to be done according to manufactures instructions.

                it could be the sweep reverse wiring in the C1 plug or something shorting across the terminals in the wireway.Or as said above different motor start switch.
