  • chassis

    I must have the worst luck, the info everybody gave me last time I had problem worked but now for the bad news last week a water line broke above lane 2 chassis and shorted it out I rebuilt most changed pins everything, but iam not getting 24 volts to the sweeprelay or the table I checked the fuse holders and iam not getting power there.That hooks to my transformer so does that mean its shot?

    Re: chassis

    The fuse is located before the transformer. If it is popping, check the 3 diodes on the heatsink (aluminum angle looking thing just below T1). It's a start.
    I've had enough of hope & chains.

      I already changed the diodes on the heatsink,the fuse isn't popping this chassis is a solid state I thought the fuse is after the transformer because you have 2 fuses that are high volt and 1 that is low volt I have the high voltage working but no low voltage coming from the trasformer to the fuse holder.

        Electricity--Book I-States, source--path--load--return, if you have #1--#2-and-#4--change the load,you have a Bad Transformer!!

          Need a bit more info.

          Is everything else functioning except the contactors? I mean, ball lights, the M relays, cycle stepping, ball return, etc.

          If so, M relay pins 9 and 11 could be dodgy (or the relay contact itself). Another possibility is C2A-35, C2A-11 and the wiring between all of the above.

            A simple down & dirty way to check to see if the transformer is shorted, is to remove it, hook 120V to the primary (thru a fuse - 2A or so) and plug it in. If the fuse blows immediatly = it's shorted & now scrap copper (if you want to go thru that nightmare). I have used this simple method hundreds of times.

            I've had enough of hope & chains.
