  • Pinsetter doesn't go into second bal cycle

    I have a lane that once in awhile when a nine pin is left it stays in first ball cycle... I think the dector rod or the tube its self still might be out of a adjustment by a hair... Or could the detector be dirty, or how about the spring on the second ball selector could be worn out. Any suggestions

    Does it pick it up and respot it THEN stay on 1st ball? I would start with the rod adjustment myself.
    The other 2 things you list I would think would cause trouble with other pins also if that were the reason.

    Does it work correctly IF you have a full set of pins in the buckets?

      If the pinsetter detects all of the single pins with the exception of the nine, I would check the deck pads. The possibility is the wrong deck pad was installed, or the original is either worn, missing or broken.

        Test all other pin positons at least a few times a piece and let us know your results...

        Test with full and empty deck...

            Might wanna double check your deck is level, your stabilizer, post, and shaft bearings are all good.
