  • Urgent Problem, HELP

    Machine is at 180 waiting for pins. 10 pins delivered to the deck, kicks out of the 180 but the deck doesn't shift when it goes to the floor.

    Deck comes back up with the full 10 pins, you cycle the machine, it locks in a 180 and you manually trip the 180 link and then the deck goes back down and shifts properly to release the 10 pins.

    It will do it this way every time. Why will it not shift after delivering the 10 pins from the turret? Then, will shift when you cycle it again and kick the 180 link?

    HELP PLEASE!!!! Need this machine in hours.

    1) Check the flag adjustment
    2) Replace the small spirol pin D shaft11-360264
    3) Small pins on 1:1 cover that set into mounting
    plate get loose and jam the flag.
    You can punch the pin back in and use some gasket
    sealer to hold it in until you replace the 1:1 cover.

      Thanks Mike

      I will try all those fixits. I have checked the flag adjustment. It was a 1/4" and I adjusted it down to 1/8" and it didn't seem to help.

      I have never seen this problem where the deck would shift if you kicked the 180 link and wouldn't shift if the turret deliverd the pins and kicked out of a 180.

      Could there be a problem with the detector rod adjustment too? Because right now this machine when it gets an out-of-range, you can not clear it by pulling the hook.

        Call my work (thunder bird lanes) and ask Connie for my cell # if you need more help on this.

          Pinsetter, I had a problem like that tonight, a new guy who we're training say's to me "I'll get it" (the oor) and I said "ok (like a dummy)" well lets just say when I went back there to finally help him (2 mins during glow bowl) he was hanging from the oor link telling me it wont clear, I almost flipped out on him, but I didn't. I can be fixed, then I started to wonder why? so I cleared the oor and now I have a similar problem. I too would like to know the answer.

          soon to be great [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/usflag.jpg[/img]

            I believe your oor problem is a different problem. I don't think its related to your deck shifting problem. Look real close again at your flag, and make sure the 1 to 1 cover pins and your allen mounting bolts for the 1 to 1 cover didn't come out. Something is blocking your deck from shifting. Another common problem is that maybe a deck chute bolt came loose or a spotting finger bolt came loose and this can cause the moving deck from shifting. Be VERY CAREFUL with this because if a loose bolt has fallen and is jamming the deck, when you dislodge it the deck will shift. Whatever the problem, DON"T panic. You'll find the problem.

              I forgot to mention that there is 1 allen bolt in particular at the bottom of the 1 to 1 cover that can come out and cause the moving deck cam follower not to move freely back and forth. (12-100313) This HAS TO move back and forth because it controls the back and forth motion of the scissor deck. Take your deck down to 270 with a empty deck and remove the deck cable. That is the best way to check the movement of the moving deck cam follower. Good luck.

                Since this happened to me I would bet this is your problem. The spiral pin was split in two so it looked okay till I pounded it out.

                2) Replace the small spirol pin D shaft 11-360264
