About a year ago I posted about issues with my Cross Town. It took longer than I expected, but finally have it setup in the house. When I plug it in, the subway doors open and remain open. The reset bank does nothing, the score motor keeps rotating and the is what I will call the rest buzz.

Help with this is appreciated!

I’m in about the same spot with my CT. I did supply power directly to the Z relay and it tripped and closed the doors. I’m still working on this but speculate one of the reel switches is not closed even though it is at zero. Score motor is not turning in my case. Let me know how things go and I’ll do the same here. Good luck!

I manually advanced the 100 score reel and plugged it back in. Now the 100 wheel and the score motor both run continuously. Its been a long time since I played it, but from what I recall, its like pressing and holding the coin door replay button.

Found one problem. A wire on the hundreds wheel needed to be re-soldered. Now it will reset to 000, however as before as soon as there is power it doesn't finish a reset and keeps running.

Have you made sure all the zero switches are closed? Checked all of mine and adjusted as necessary. Mine will now finish the start sequence (open and close doors, release ball gate after points are scored) once the reels show zeros. However it still struggles to get the reels to zeros so I’ll work on that next. Score motor runs properly.

I have no experience with working on this. I had thought that if the reels went back to zero that meant the switches operated properly. If that isn't correct please let me know. Thank you

In my experience this is a common problem. Score reel/s return to zero but not sufficiently to trigger full reset. One by one jumper the zero switch on each score reel and establish whether that solves the issue. If so you will need to clean/file the culprit switch to gain better contact.

I feel lots better as it seems to be a simple fix. Thank you for the pointers

Starting with 10's reel which had no circuit board. I cleaned the contacts and moved them to touching at zero. Plugged it in and that reel now spins. Did a search and it says with the wheel at zero, the contact should be open not closed. So to me that means that it was set properly with the contacts closed at zero which must be the case for all the reels or they would be spinning.

Studying the zero contact - it is 2 sets of 2. When one pair open, the other pair close

Problem solved

Dirty contacts on the zero switch.
