    John,

    If you have a spare cent switch you might as well replace it.

    Did you try another stator to be sure it's not something else.

    P.S. Is this center WACCAMAW?

      Do a search for 'potential relay'. IMO, that is the best way to go.
      Yeah but, We've always done it that way.

        sounds like a sticking mechanism to me. needs to be replaced.

          There isn't any adjustment.
          Does the mechanism go up and down? Is it complete?
          How do the contact points look? (remember there are two switches on a WH combo)
          Does the motor start/stop with the table motor plug?
          If so, then don't worry about the motor. Check out the sweep motor plug, sweep motor contactor, sweep motor capacitors, sweep reverse switch, C-1 connections (the bottom two rows especially), and look for junk laying around on the front terminal strips.

          If scoring is connected for sweep reverse, unplug scoring and try a cycle. The automatic sweep reverse may be at fault but we would need to know more about the scoring & chassis if that's the case.

            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Agreed. We completed one of our houses over to all potential relays about 6 months ago. The best thing we ever did.

                  Im only teasing BG. Just took you a little while to learn the wiring. I have to thank Jamie at Stahls, he told us at school that Pot relays were the way to go. I have one side done, all 32 lanes. Still have 32 to go. I have not had 1 issues with those 32 lanes of Pot relays. Its one of the best investments you can make next to slowing down your pinwheels.
