Reels not spinning correctly

Postby pennymachines » Tue Nov 11, 2014 3:26 pm

"Reels not spinning" seems to be the most common topic on this forum. In lieu of a Tips & Tricks topic summarizing typical causes and fixes :idea: and to preserve the sanity of contributors (most notably BP) who've tirelessly addressed the issue many times, I've collected together some relevant threads:

Sega one arm bandit reels not spinning

Topic merged - Site Admin.

I think I have posted something like this before... Anyway, I have a Sega one arm bandit - the thing is only a week ago it worked fine but now when you pull the arm the reels don't spin at all. I have checked most things but can't seem to find the fault. Can anyone please help?
Thank you.

Hi classic .....

As I'm sure you already know there could be many reasons for this happening. !PUZZLED!
If you want to go into more detail about what happens and what you've already checked plus a photo or five, something might spring to mind.

In the meantime I've gone into "Archive" on the left of the page and looked at your posts under "Members" these are the posts of yours you are referring to.
It might be one of those. :cool:

Arm not making the reels spin
OXO one arm bandit not paying out
Aristocrat Moneytree - reels not spinning
Sega Mad Money reels not spinning
Aristocrat Cashcendo project
How do I get the reels to spin faster?
Reels & Payouts

With any luck one of those will do it.
