Paul, I think I know this machine inside out now. Started off with a few duff micro-switches, then moved onto a couple of duff diodes which cost 99p for 10 and then a new relay which cost £7 (as one of them was 50v instead of 24v), then after all that it still was dead so a bit more testing found two blown capacitors which cost £1.20, so all in all about a tenner to fix and a lot of time but I have enjoyed doing it and have to say for back in its day it is ingenious how it works with no circuit boards etc, very good basic electronics and the payout is brilliant. I will get to the bottom of the non-paying for 30 and 50 coins eventually.

Never having many Aristocrats I'm not too clued up on them, but did they all have to be on some sort of stand?
This one has a hole in the bottom for the coins to fall through once the hopper gets too full, but nowhere for them to fall into?

Hi widget, can you post a picture of the pins in the top of yours please? I had another look at mine and got some of the payouts working as they should. But a few not having it. I now have.......
1x ten pays out 3
2x tens not a sniff
3x jacks pays out 10
3x queens pays out 13
3x kings pays out 10
3x aces pays out 60
3x 7's nothing
4x jacks,queens and kings pays 50
4x aces same 60
4x 7's nadda

This is better than before. The payouts with my previous picture must be wrong. I know swapping them coloured pins about will affect the payouts.

Here is mine working but with no 30 or 50 payouts, but I am suspecting possibly switch issues which I will investigate.

You are now the forum's official electro mechanical (with hopper) expert and Mr fixit. We can all now buy these machines not working in the sure and certain knowledge that you can fix them for us... I'm so pleased. !!THUMBSX2!!

Well done, was the final fix a relay. I recall Dave fixing one of these and posting details of the alternative relays available some time back..
