    Hello everyone.

    Quick question. My 1000 digit reel on my Chicago coin refuses to count up. The switches are different then the 3 other reels. When at 0 all three switches are fully open. When at 1-8 they get a tad closer together but do not reset. When the reel is at 9 they are all fully closed and it will reset to 0. It has no problems in this configuration counting up though when playing.

    The top pic is position 9.
    middle pic is position 1-8
    bottom pic is position 0

    What game is it? Can you post a schematic, or is there one online at IPDB?

    Quoted from Schamattack:

    When at 0 all three switches are fully open. When at 1-8 they get a tad closer together but do not reset.

    If there's no difference between the 0 position and the 1-8 position something's not adjusted properly. At least one of those switches should close in the 1-8 position. To determine which one you could close them one at a time, preferably with an alligator test lead clipped to the solder lugs, then see if it resets as it should.
