Re: Rotamint Duett

Does anyone happen to know the purpose of the cam switch in the coin mechanism on this machine? 324AB62D-1041-4264-909A-0D76D4301706a.jpg The microswitch latches a relay to start one cycle of the machine. Partway through, a lever on the main cam operates, and a lever pushes the coin out of the mecha...

Re: Rotamint Duett

So today I decided to venture into the 3 wheels while I still await fuses. The wheels each contain a pair of sprung pegs with cup shapes on top on which sit 2 tiny ball bearings. When the wheels are replaced the ball bearings are sandwiched between the wheel and the chassis. They then bridge the gap...

Re: Rotamint Duett

A further question! Can anyone explain the workings of the three wheels in terms of the diagram? (Bottom part of diagram above) The wipers which connect to the two ball bearings on each disc are obviously the two arrows at the top. I’m guessing they connect the pairs of poles below them in turn work...

Re: Rotamint Duett

Thanks for the replies and info. While awaiting fuse delivery I sorted the coin mech today. It needed a good clean to get it working smoothly. I’m unsure what coin it’s meant to use. The details say a sixpence but this just drops through the reject slot. I’m wondering if it’s actually changed to a t...

Re: Rotamint Duett

There is mention on the front of ‘mystery payouts’! It’s on a separate plastic part displayed on the front, so I suspect your thoughts are correct and someone has added this on at some time. By way of today’s progress for those who might find it helpful.... I discovered that the main bank of cam swi...

Re: Rotamint Duett

Thanks for the help. The brake pins are definitely OK as manually lifting them works fine. I will start checking the switches next. A quick continuity test on the coin micro switch suggests it might not be operational, but bypassing it doesn’t work either, so that’s another area to sort. The randomi...

Re: Rotamint Duett

So - today I took delivery of my first project - the Duett. I'm suspecting not the simplest of first projects so here we go - hopefully some of you wonderful people with a bit more experience will know a few things....! It's not the tidiest of machines but appears to be mostly there. Hardly any bulb...

Re: Rotamint Duett

That explains. Yes it was the schematics that led me to the conclusion there were different variants of the duett. From just looking at the back views of the machines I'd initially assumed they were from completely different models. Thanks for the help. I'm sure I'll be back with more questions once...

Re: Rotamint Duett

Thanks. I was slightly confused as I’d seen one ‘Duett’ wiring diagram which showed two motors and another which showed one and stated it as the circuit for a ‘Duette E’. Frustratingly, the first pic had the name torn from it, so although it was accompanied with the relay connection sheet which stat...
