Hey Everyone,

I am having issues with my cowpoke. When ball passes the left rollover switch to drain. Machine does not register. There is no power when checked with volt meter going to that switch. In addition when the ball hits left of the center target on the roto target nothing registers. Right rollover works fine as does hitting the right side of the rollover target. Anyone have ideas on how this could be fixed?

Thanks Pinsiders,

Dan

Does the Upper Right rollover switch have the same problem?

No it’s only the left rollover switch

Cleaned all possible switches. I’m now thinking it is a loose wire inside the roto target.

Does the left roto target spot a number and score points?

Is there a relay associated with the lighting of rollover light? On that relay there should be a switch that changes the rollover value from 10 to 100 points. Clean and adjust switch if needed.

No it doesn’t

I'd check the roto unit. Make sure all the wipers are contacting their respective rivets in the stopped position. The roto unit disc may need to be slightly realigned by loosening the three screws which hold it to the cast metal hub. Check for broken off wires on the roto unit as well.

That’s it. Adjusted the alignment on the roto in stopped position and it’s working great !!

Thanks
