      If there is a time delay module, I'd start there.

        Excellent place to start! Since the Twelve Strike Scoring by itself does not cycle the pinsetter, this is eliminated. The reset buttons at the ball return and back end, both go directly into the electrical box so that leaves out the Bowltronics. Change the time delay module first. If that doesn't work, check for loss of power to the TD module. Check also for an open circuit in the cord from the wire channel to the cycle solenoid as well as check the solenoid itself. Check voltage at terminals 19 and 20 of the TD module when the machine is on but not cycling. Should show 220vac (plus or minus a few).

          Also you may want to check that the cycle solenoid is plugged in on the bottom of the wire channel
          as those plugs can vibrate loose if not locked in properly.
          Go with what works and not what the book says.

            Be sure the plunger is inserted into the solenoid. Check the lane next to it if you need to see what it should look like.
