coin op dryer doesn't stop.
« on: July 01, 2010, 02:09:17 AM »

Discovered machine with SWITCH ACTUATOR arm broken. Replaced the actuator but machine doesn't stop when the actuator opens the two switches it controls. Both switches working properly and I can hear what sounds like a relay clicking inside of machine as I activate the switches. I tested both switches with ohm meter and are properly opening the circuit when suppose to.

The drum motor doesn't stop when it is suppose to, and I am assuming the timer motor is also not stoppin, which would explain the broken actuator. I couldn't find a motor relay, but on the motor is a motor switch according to wire diagram. Is this a relay and is it possible I have a welded contact? Is there a trouble shooting guild that can help me figure out the problem somewhere available? Does anyone have a history with this problem than can offer me a suggestion? I would greatly appreciate it!
