  • Don't try this at home!

    Got a pinsetter motor back from the repair shop, and insallted it. The machine just about went bezerk! Damedest thing I ever saw. Running a pinsetter backwards, does NOT make it a pin-picker-upper....trust me. I couldn't believe it, but it did no lasting damage....Yet another lesson learned.
    I got it ! I got it ! Oh damn

    If you look on the motor schematics it will tell you how to reverse it. not very hard

      Most motors come wired to rotate cw while looking at the output shaft. We need them to rotate ccw. This usually requires the swapping of 2 wires. I am surprised that your motor shop didn't pay attention to how you had it wired when you took it to them...I'm sure if you give them a call, they will apologize for the mixup and will either ask you to take it back to them or instruct you how to make the change yourself.

          Be very careful before moving ANY wires. There are quite a few different types of motors driving Brunswick pinsetters these days. Each manufacturer tends to do things different. Consult the motor shop you had do the work BEFORE changing wires around. You may end up with a large chunk of copper and steel that the motor shop won't warranty because you made a mistake. (Talk about a large paper weight...LOL)

          Rake sweeping out of time, and pin launching onto lane.
