Aristocrat Bingo Clickety Click

Post by cazzy69 »

Hi guys, I’m a newbie. I bought two old one arm bandits in bad condition and am restoring them (first time doing this). They are an Aristocrat Bingo Clickety Click. I’ve got one working perfect, but this other one the reels spin but number 1 stops, then 2 and 3 stop together slowly. I’ve cleaned all the inside and pay slides including new springs but not removed the reel bundle (bit unsure in case I can’t get it back together!) I put a cloth over the fan and let the reels run. The first one runs free but the other two are really stiff. Any help much appreciated thanks.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

I guess you're going to have to slide the reel assembly out and clean the axle. It's probably blocked with dry grease.
It's easier than you probably think, take a deep breath and leap in.
At least you've got another one to use for comparison.

Hi guys after restoring one machine to the next was a bit daunting thinking about taking apart the reels and pay slides and replacing springs but found this site and found a real badpenny !!! But this one wasn’t bad at all he guided me thro the worst bits of doing it and bits were a struggle but he said never give up ,I wasn’t any way this wasn’t going to defeat me and thro tinkering and reels out and in so many times all in bits then putting it back together putting it in the mech for it just to be the same !!! So out and stripped again thinking what can I do now to it ,every one uses oil 3 in one wd40 I had an idea years ago when I was putting oil in my car and on the shelf in the garage was slick50 !! Supose to be slippery than ice so took it up and put it in between the reels weather that was the right thing to do I didn’t know ,badpenny said look at the back Maby the stop is staying on longer than should be and not allowing the kicker to give a gd pelt ,as I was looking I thot I’d get it a turn over and boom the reels spun really fast and bang bang bang wow it’s all working all the late nights after work finally got it working I’ll post pics up once I know how to as this side of thing computer wise I’m hopeless but all the best Davie
