Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

It's alive! I have it running on 220v, all issues resolved with the exception of the 'Lucky Devil' pay finger being off. 0.jpg Rotating the mount for the solenoid microswitch with the fingers at rest did the trick. Solenoid has power and works properly when feature is enabled. Feature turns on from ...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

It's alive! That's fantastic! Here is what I am seeing and isnt making sense. Here is a video of my mech cycling. Note the switch is never touched, mechanism cycled or resting. Would you mind sending me a video of your machine in the same cycle? With how mine is setup, the only way that switch is be...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

The switch is OPEN during rest. It closes every time the payout fingers are released, except in the single case of the 'no-devil' ORANGE, where it is kept open by an additional thickness of metal on the payout disc at that point. The switch is wired in series with the payout solenoid. When the feat...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

This is open all the time when in normal non running state and only opens when the machine is cycled and the fingers pull back. When you say the switch is open in none run state, do you mean closed then opens when cycled and finger is pushed back (like by the orange bump)? Edit: to clarify, using o...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

True, I was going based on the wiring diagram, it appears to be the same. I ran a multimeter on the switch as it's currently set up and the circuit is open (no power to the solenoid) unless the Melon is on the payline. That closes the circuit between the solenoid and the control box.

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

The hole you mention on finger two, I do not have for your info..... So on yours mech, finger two doesn't have any hole? That seems so odd, as it clearly actuates a microswitch. Why bother with the switch if it's always in the same state? Does your transformer have a rating or any other markings on...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

I took some previous advice (a little bending never hurt anything) and I was able to bend it down. Mech is working like a champ now. Now that the mechanism is working good, I want to tackle the feature. Then I will disassemble and clean the entire mechanism and put it back together and begin working...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

I went through and re-indexed all the reels and everything was good. I then tried to trigger the jackpot by spinning and stopping the fan, lining up the pay, and then letting the cycle finish. It is still hanging on the BAR-BAR-BAR. It was not when I indexed the reels, but I now realize that was bec...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

After circumventing the anti-check device I’m back in business. Everything on the mech is operating as expected with one exception. The BAR doesn’t hit. Melon hits without issues. All other payouts match, but with the bar payout the finger doesn't enter the first reel. Doesn’t really make sense, as ...

Re: Sega Bell Slot Lucky Devil Restoration

Thanks, I think this is what’s happening. I adjusted the reels still hitting the same wall.... as soon as I trip that bar, I can push the finger the rest of the way and the reels don’t move at all, and the machine pays out.
