  • Electical help please

    Lane 10 doesnt turn on when on switch is flipped to the on position. I can get a srewdriver and press the motor contactor down and it kicks on. Also If I press the motor start relay down manually it turns on but the front desk controls nor the mechanic switch turns the lane on. Can anyone give me ideas to check. I was thinking it was the motor start relay not sure though.

      I'd just check the main circuit breaker. If the switch is loose or wiggles when turning on or off means its bad.

        put the jumper wire in a and c ithink on the managers control junction plug on top of electrical box and see if it comes on may be a shorted or ground from front desk

          See if you have 24 volts coming to the coil of the motor start relay, if you do you could have a bad relay coil.

            Need to check voltages before anything.. Check TS-2 6 & 9 and at motor start relay for 24 v

            If you do try jumping managers control its B & C

              Check the following points.

              TS2-6 to TS2-9
              TS2-5 to TS2-9
              TS2-3 to TS2-9
              TS2-2 to TS2-9
              Coil of the motor start relay

              Post results of your voltage readings here and we can point you in the right direction.

              Do not push any relays or contactors unless you have the pinsetter motor unplugged as damage to the gear box or turret may occur.

                What everyone has suggested is good; however, remember that there are five switches that must be turned on for the pinsetter to operate.
                1. Mechanic's switch;
                2. Manager's switch;
                3. Masking unit switch;
                4. Deck jam microswitch;
                5. Turret jam microswitch.
                If all switches are on, check the master circuit breaker (on the wall) and the electrical box circuit breaker.
