    Re: no cycle

    If the reset buttons don't work either, I'd suspect the reset solenoid is toast.

    Pull the solenoid cover off, disconnect the main power from the machine. With voltmeter set on ohms, measure across the solenoid coil. Should get a relatively low reading (haven't tested any, but under 300 ohms most likely if coil is good). Most likely you'll get a high reading, indicating the coil has had it.

    To verify this, set the meter on AC voltage (300 volt scale or higher) Plug machine in, and have helper push the reset button with meter leads across coil. If you get line voltage (anywhere from 110 to 230, depending on your building's wiring), the solenoid is shot:

      A little safer way to approach this is to unplug and swap the solenoid with a pinsetter that is working or with a known good spare. Testing with the ohmmeter while plugged in (even with the power disconnected) may give you errant readings. Testing "hot" should be left to qualified, experienced personnel only. Not everyone who reads this is at that level. Sorry KLKevin.

        Ken:

        Point well taken ... Assuming that someone is familiar with general electrical safety may not have been a good thing, only takes a few more minutes to remove it from machine and test on bench, which is the safer way to go:

          The machine that freeway is having problems with has the Zot 24 volt solenoid. I would tend to lean towards the mercury switch or a bad wire from the Zot box to the solenoid.
