  • Fails To Trigger In Practice Bowling

    Howdy Fellers,

    Machine 25 likes to go AWOL during practice. Right before leagues, during practice session, the cycle solenoid will not engage the gearbox. It appears that the solenoid did not attempt to engage. We have AMF Accuscore scoring system with the tower switches. Also, it only happens in second ball. The solenoid runs fine during the scoring session. Just poops out during practice. Time Delay Module perhaps????

    Thanks for your help....

    Swap the TDM with another lane and see if the problem moves. There is no difference in the triggering sequence when in practice or regular bowling. Moving the TDM will help isolate the problem.

      It may be that you only notice it during practice, but i agree check the TDM and see what happens
      What do you mean! There were spare parts?

        It's been a couple months since I posted on this topic. So I thought tell you what came of the problem.

        I did swap the TDM's (25 and 26). I have not had a fail to trigger on either machine.

        And to clarify.....This problem did only occur during the practice session. When that lane was fired up for practice bowling, I would sit behind that pinsetter (just waiting for it to fail to trigger). After practice was over, I would go finish my duties with no problems.
