    I am guessing; but, does this happen when the machine is in operation? If yes, I would suspect that the turret jam microswitch is the culprit. The test is to manually press the turret jam microswitch, keeping your fingers clear of all moving parts. Press the switch firmly and see if the issue disappears. Adjust the bolt that contacts the switch, making sure it is positively pressing the microswitch. If this bolt is slightly out of adjustment, it will cause similar issues.

        Make sure the fuses are seated properly. I had a machine that flickered and it was the 1 amp fuse cap had loosened and the fuse and cap were just sitting in the fuse holder.

        If your first fabrication doesn't work-keep adding metal
        Be safe when you wrench.

          I would also check your deck jam tube/switch cable.

            make sure the main plug has been twisted and on tight.

              also check the mechanic switch in the back... I have seen those go bad and flicker the machine.

                I also had one that did this......Unplug your machine...check inside of the receptical on top of electrical box and make sure all of you prongs are nice and tight.....plug her back in and see if this helps.

                  I would replace the bolt with a carriage bolt [ more serves to engage switch ]

                    Also make sure your turret hanging rods are not bent. The way I check the turret jam switch is, unplug motor, turn machine on, back switch bolt off switch till deck light goes off, turn bolt back on switch till light comes on, then turn bolt an extra turn and a half.

                      I had a cracked 1 amp fuse holder that did this. It looked good but vibration would make it lose contact internally. It was
                      hard to see the crack and it stayed together even when I pulled the fuse out. Rare, but it did happen.

                      *sigh* Hello friends..

                      I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

                      Left a rant about this in the bowling forum…

                      At what thickness do you replace the clutch face.
                      Is there a minimum dimension from the clutch face to the rivet.

                      Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
