Re: Wulff Jupiter wiring

Aaah...no - you speed read a bit a bit of my post I think....my problem is that the machine is constantly running - it never stops - the motor turns through the whole cycle then when it gets to the end of the rotation (where it should stop waiting for the coin operated switch to detect a coin) it ju...

Re: Wulff Jupiter wiring
