  • 2nd ball sweeps every time

    A2 pinsetter. Frameworks. Throw the first ball and everything works as it should. Then it will set the pins for the second ball and sweeps the pins. Does this everytime.
    Acts like someone is pushing the reset button when the machine come to rest after setting the pins for second ball. Pauses for half a second and then sweeps. Only does this on second ball. Any suggestions.

    i would check the dashpot adjustment also you need to determine if it is cycling due to electrical or mechanical failure unplug the plug to solenoid and see if it still cycles if yes than it is mechanical if not start looking at electrical let us know and we can guide you farther from there
    Mama said bowlers are ornery because they got all them balls and conditions are never good enough

      So you're saying the cycle solenoid is firing when this occurs? Have you disconnect the scorings control of the cycle circuit?

        You stated that it waits a "half second" then cycles. Did the rake drop before it cycled?
