  • Always a Reason

    Had a good one tonight, 16 lanes running place was packed. 2 lanes were set aside for city tourney singles and doubles. The tourney bowlers were finishing up on lane 4 when it goes into continuous cycle. I am scrambling to find the problem. Checked sweep wires,ok check table wires and disconnect. still no cure. swap chassis, still cycling, I am ready to take sweep wires off and replace switch when I look and see just a portion of the top off a pin,wedged in between the backboard and side wall holding the cycle switch on the backboard, Why didn't I look for the obvious first... I would like to compile or find if someone has one a, Trouble shooters Guide to these 30's . Thanks for reading ,I know I have obtained alot of useful information here, hope someone can use this.

            Sometimes it's hard to remember that it isn't always the machine's fault. But they have a way of making up for it when it isn't.

              I've been there.
              Yanked out many hairs, thinking the same things you did, "what is wrong with this thing!?", .....

              only to find a bowler had damaged the reset button on the ball return.
