Booting up an EM for the first time in 20 years

Post by prock on Sat Nov 07, 2015 8:35 am

Looking for some advice.... This machine hasn't been booted up in 20 years. Everything looks clean with little to no corrosion. I'll check all the fuses and whatnot. Anything else I should do? Everything mostly worked before it was shut off for the last time.

haha.. I'm thinking about not turning it on until I check everything out. I know the steppers probably need cleaning and the score reels and whatnot.

I would go with Plan A. Just flip the switch. Don't ever let fear and good judgment hold you back.

Make sure you make a cellphone video, just in case something goes wrong.

Don't worry about turning it on nothing is going to happen other than a stuck on solenoid or the score motor will continue running it will be just fine turn it off if you have a problem If you do have a problem and want to fix it yourself just go on the net and find the startup sequence for the brand of game
If you want free advise just give me a call at allied coin or send me a message
