Jubilee 3 reel bundle problem

Postby greg1 » Sun Oct 26, 2014 12:08 pm

Topic moved - Site Admin.

Hi,
Please help. I have a Jubilee 3 reel machine. I must have moved the reel bundle as I cannot get the machine to pay out the lowest two old 5ps. It always pays out four old coins. It will pay out the jackpot, but how do I reset the reels for the lowest pay out?

Hi matey and welcome to "The" Forum.
* Photos might help us.
* Time to confess - You think you might have moved the reels ..... have you?
* What else might you have moved or tinkered with?
* What was it doing/not doing to require tinkering when you first got hold of it?
* You mention The Jackpot pays, what about all of the combinations?

Jubs & Aristos are pretty robust so I reckon a slight tap in the right place with a sledgehammer should sort it.

I've had the machine since the late '60s - early 70s It's been in the loft for over 30 years, so I cannot remember if I moved the reels or the reel strips? but it seems to pay out on the bells and plums. The jackpots are Concords. It should pay out two old 5ps on one Cherry or one Concord, but pays out for old 5ps. Other than moving the reels or strips, I have not removed anything else, this I am 100% sure of. What is the best way to reset the wheels so the machine pays out the right amounts?

If it pays out on some combinations correctly, it's unlikely the reels are in the wrong position, as all payouts are linked. Much more likely one or two payout slides are sticking or have a coin stuck in them stopping them from firing. Remove the payout tube, then the slide top, then each slide, keeping them in order. Check the springs and clean the slides - do not use any lubricant at all - just clean and polish; replace in the same order. Operate the machine and check for the three definite clicks during the cycle. First the slides retract and click into position, second the payout fingers hit the reel plates and third the slides release and slam home. If that all works and still no payout we can look again. Photos please... we love photos. :cool:

I see Coppinpr has beaten me to it, but I'll still post mine anyway.

Before we go the lengthy written description of what to check and how it works in order to see whether the problem actually is the reel strips or reel bundle itself.
It might only be dried grease defeating weak springs, or an escaped coin fouling something, or a missing spring blah, blah.

Force one of the lower payouts that are not performing and take a photo of the vertical fingers that clunk across into the payout disks. That's from the right hand side looking at the mech from the front. They're near the top.

If the payout symbols on the front are right but the fingers can't access holes in the payout disks, then yes you have got them out of sequence.

If that is your issue you need to search the payout discs for the jackpot payout, which allows the correct finger to penetrate all three disks. Then look at the front and if the symbols are wrong, that's when you start moving reel strips to match. If you have more than one jackpot combination then you need check Melons as well as Bars.

If it's not, then the photos will help.

Another option may be that the whole bundle is set too far away from the payout fingers, thus allowing the 1 cherry finger to move too far, therefore tripping the second payout slide. I can't remember how the reel rod is secured, but Aristo's can be upset like this if the rod is too tight/loose. Hope this makes sense.....

I agree with raj, the "pay 2" lever is moving too far in.

Thanks for your replies, There are six payout fingers. Should one finger go through the disc for three bells, plums etc. or more than one? If so, what is the sequence? The main payouts are Concords, bells, plums, oranges. All the payout slides seem to work OK apart from when it pays out 4 coins instead of 2.

One finger for each combination. The fingers release increasing payouts (number of slides) the closer they are to the hub.

The cherry finger is different from the rest. When it goes through the first hole but is blocked by the reel 2 disk, it releases just the first (bottom) slide. When it goes through both holes in the first and second reel disks, it releases the bottom two slides. So if the finger is positioned too far off the disk, it could be moving far enough to release the two slides on just the first hole. It could be damaged, of course.

I have cleaned and polished the payout slides. They are numbered so I cannot get it wrong. If the jackpot is working and the jackpot combinations (i.e. one above or below) payout, should all the others follow suit? I am having problems with my internet connection so if I do not reply this is why.
