I moved my working SS Hot Tip (Williams System 3) from my sons garage back to my place. It is now having trouble.
All GI lights work but then shut off after a minute or so. I tracked the problem down to the 6.3vac pins on the power supply board (3J3 pins 1-2) get super hot and the plastic plug softens allowing the pins to lose contact.
Those pins appear to run the GI and if I pull out all the bulbs the pins do not overheat. I thought I might have shorting bulbs but even with new bulbs the problem persists. It can't be a direct short as the pins dont get hot when no bulbs are in, but I don't see what would have changed during the move.
Any help would be appreciated!
