I'm working bringing a Stars back to life that has been out of commission for quite some time. Seller was unaware of its history and had been sitting untouched for a while.

While going through the cabinet and inspecting the wiring, I noticed that the MOV was missing or had been cut off. I have tried looking up the GE V130Z415 part, without luck.

Is this product from Marco an acceptable alternative?

Also, I would like to test the line filter itself. I haven't plugged the game in yet since I received it, but F6 is blown. Ive inspected for shorts but haven't seen anything just yet. This would be done by plugging it in and measuring for 120v off of the filter, correct?

Thanks!

vid1900 gives a replacement from g-p-e here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/replacing-line-cords-plugs-wall-sockets-vids-guide#post-1945121

Edit: Vid's link lists the same one Ed suggests in the next post.

You were close. That old GE MOV would have been a 15mm part. New and better ones are 20mm parts such as V130LA20AP as found here:

The one on the Marco site is the same thing.

Measuring voltages --> you can measure the 120V off the output of filter while plug to rectifier board is hanging. But the MOV and filter are *before* fuse F6. Pretty nasty voltages there so watch out!
