Hi.
Thanks for your reply. There’s so many moving parts etc. etc., and I’m very cautious around the electrics haha. Is there anyone that repairs or even looks at this around the London area do you know? I’ll upload a few pictures, thanks.

I'm also trying to work out the coin it would use and would love for it to be up and running again just for a showpiece, but unsure on where to start. Thanks for the help and replies, much appreciated. +44 7522 970535 - that’s my number if easier to text WhatsApp for info and pics of the machine.

The almost triangular plate at the top attaches to the same axle that turns the cams operating the switchgear. The other end of the bar hinges onto a curved probe fitted near the bottom where the coin sits on the microswitch. As the axle turns the bar lifts swinging the probe into the coin gate and dislodging the coin off the switch and into the chute that leads to the coin tube.

Have you tried disconnecting the motor yet to see if it's gutsy enough? The square box it's connected to is a gearbox with a reduction gearing. Take the lid off it may be full of dry grease which it's fighting.

Hi,
I did take the lid off and it’s empty of grease, and it did start to move by itself. The 3 relays type things behind the wheels that stop them from moving were moving very fast in and out, then it stops. Confused now. Do you know of anyone who repairs these around the London area at all?
Thanks for the reply and sorry for slow response - work and children take over. lol.

If your stop solenoids are hammering then you need to check the cleanliness of the reed switches.
They're mainly situated at the opposite end of the axle to the motor and gearbox. And on the gearbox itself.

Worth cleaning but don't bend any out of shape.
