  • 76 error

    When I dealt with this, it was a combination of a couple things. The ST switch was being activated at the wrong time and caused these faults.
    Work I did to deal with it: Tong clutch needed cleaning, which also allowed me to set it to less tension after cleaning. The main tong drive gear on the table needed a new hose washer. This lessened the kickback when tongs opened. I also re-positioned the stop block on the drive rack for the switch. 2021-06-06_13-59-30.png

      I assume what you're talking about is after the 1st ball is delivered. Usually after the 2nd ball is delivered, pins left standing are only detected, not picked up.

      Check all the gearing on the table. God forbid an unwanted object fell in, and is causing some binding with the spotting tong movement.

      Brunswick provides a downloadable manual. Error Code 76 is explained in Section 6: Troubleshooting. Looking at the clutch, as loadtoad mentioned, is one of the possible causes.

        Check the lower teeth on the main tong drive gear if one is broken it will cause a 76 as well.

          Main Drive Gear missing Teeth or even the Gear underneath the Main is missing Teeth. The Tension on the Clutch can be off. Place a Rubber Washer on the Main Drive Gear to prevent "kickback". The hook part on the Switch itself can be bent. Or the Switch is just wacky and needs to be replaced.
