  • scissors won't open

    I have a lane that the scissors won't open during at the bottom of a normal cycle... it picks them up goes up, comes down, and won't open... after that, if I put it in manual and lower the table, it opens fine. HELP ME PLEASE!!!!

    Re: scissors won't open

    Check the adj of the respot rod, the finger link should be about 1/8" away from the high point of the shifter link.

    Could be the bolt on the end of the shifter cam link has backed up.

    Anyone change a respot cell recently?
    Please.....follow the instructions!!

        If you have a gap that is too tight, it will also cause this. If you eliminate the respot rod, try picking up 1 pin at a time until you find the problem cell.

              Hand crank it down to where it should release and then go down and look around for a bind or something. (Please pull the R/S plug.)

                front stud bent? That throws everything off.
                Yeah but, We've always done it that way.

                      Maybe the scissors are stuck on the rake under the deck.

                        check all your pivot studs. gotta have 1 or 2 bent.

                          When the RSC’s work with no load, do they kinda snap open? After checking your Pawl adjustment and looking for bent studs…Make sure that the adjustment on the shifter cam link stop bolt is turned in 4 turns after contact.

                              You can't find a rake, deck, or a sissor. Maybe u could locate the mouse trap, or the Christmas tree???
