  • GSX keeps throwing J1

    Lane 18 at our center keeps throwing J1. when the table is coming up to the home position to load pins, the latch on the square shaft that goes with the stroke limitor is not being pulled back to clear the swing shaft. Replaced latch and shock and solenoid on stroke limitor, but all were good. Any ideas?

    Are all the pins being loaded? Could be there is one pinholder that has a broken switch, and is "waiting" to receive a pin.

      Check the roller on the rear swing shaft to see if it is catching on the latch. I've had this happen on a few machines in the last few months due to parts breaking in and loosening up.

        Are the back row pin detector plates catching on the setting table frame?

          I think I got it fixed. I loosened the TS1 switch, and adjusted the timing a little, and haven't had any problems as of yet. Thanks

            Did you tighten it back down afterwards???

              lol now that's funny
              If I can't fix it I'll break it so no one else can fix it either.

              I work on some nice old Brunswick A-2 pin setters. Most issues I've come across haven't been to problematic to figure out. But being I can't seem to get it to recreate the issue...

              Strange sweep problem
