Hi all -
I've been getting "Magnet Left Error" messages intermittently on my BSD. The rest of the Mist system seems to be working fine, and I'm not getting any other errors or unwanted behavior.
After digging around, it seems that this error by itself means I need to adjust the Magnet Left switch (81). The switch looks like any other microswitch, but with a long, bent lever.
My question is: what kind of adjustment does this switch generally need? What seems to be happening is that the switch doesn't always register when the magnet traverses to the left side during the test. It always works when I test the switch by itself.
I hit it with a can of air to make sure it was at least somewhat clean, and sure enough, it worked for a while, then I got another credit dot, and the same error message. My next thought is to bend the lever a little more so that it makes contact with the magnet earlier and compresses the switch button with more force, but I also don't want to break anything.
Any thoughts or ideas?
