  • brunswick ball return

    hi all

    last week we had to change a relay in the bowl return on a league lane with a non-league lane so we have 2 lanes out now because of no stock.

    with it going to take a while for it to arrive is there a way to use 1 relay or to try and bypass the relays to connect the motor back up without the relay

    cheers

    i have had similar issues and just hooked ac power direct to powerlift motor and added switch to turn on/off until parts arrived

      I double John's temp fix. Pain in the butt to have to turn on/off the lift each time it got assigned, but it worked in a pinch.

        If you have Frameworx Power lifts with GSX everyone of the power lift boxes will have a spare relay, The GS pinsetter only uses one power lift relay to turn on the lift.

          Ditto.
          Just swap the 2 around in each box.
          I would be concerned, though, about why the first relay went bad. Did the coil go bad, or the contacts quit conducting? Coil going bad means I'd check the voltage going to it to make sure it's not too high. 28 volts or higher, I'd throttle it with a resistor.
          Contacts going bad could be the motor is drawing too much current - feel it for being too hot after it runs a while.

            If this is Nexgen Electronics the 28 VAC signal will come from connection P20 out of the Nexgen Box. If you are looking at the connector and its plugged into the box measure across the green and white wire connections in the lower right hand corner of the connector for correct the correct voltage. This provide 28 VAC to the coil to one of the relays upfront.
