Mills coin tube blocks when full

Postby sarg » Thu Mar 09, 2017 7:04 pm

Mills Golden Falls - when the coin tube is full some coins will drop down into the jackpot and cashbox but not long after it just blocks up. :!?!:

So I'm pulling the mech out, emptying the tube every time it's full - getting a bit frustrated with it now.

Oh, and one more thing - all the payouts are wrong. :lol:

Could we see a photo from a little further back and one from the other side? Something looks odd here unless I'm confused by the angle. Is that nasty old grease I can see? Is everything working smoothly?

So what's wrong with the payouts? Wrong amounts? Payout card not same as payouts? Or reel strips read wrong when there is a payout?

I'm at work tonight - I will post up better pictures tomorrow.


With the payouts it doesn't payout on 3 plums, 2 cherrys pays out 4, bells pays out 16 sometimes 14, oranges 6.

How long have you had it?
Did it ever pay out properly in that time?
What does it pay out on? Or doesn't it pay out on anything?

The issue of your tube blocking is likely to be a separate issue. You have a deflector fitted which will throw occasional coins into the bank (which you describe).
As Coppinpr points out there looks to be a lot of dry grease there.
That might be stopping the clearing lever at the top of the tube from firing across at the end of each cycle. That's the lever that clears excess coins at the top of the tube and kicks them off towards the jackpot and then the cashbox.
Even without playing a coin just pulling the handle will see that lever retract from the top of the pay out tube.

Payouts mentioned in my last post.

Haven't had it long, only just noticed payouts as I've just started using it.

Sorry I was asking (badly) if those were all of the payout actions, what about those ending in Bar?
I guess the jackpot fires and resets OK?
On 3 plums, does the vertical finger engage through the payout discs?

I don't recognise the denomination, it doesn't look British to me.
Where are you, and do you want someone to look at it for you?

2 plums and a bar doesn't pay, oranges with a bar does pay out 6 coins, and bells with bar pays 16 coins.

Jackpot pays out fine.

Some pictures of the mech. Before someone bollocks me, that grease is not my doing. :lol:

OK .... we can clear up the coins jamming in the tube problem.

As I said last night ......

It's clear to see that the lever hasn't been reinserted in the slot at the top, back of the coin tube. When you remove the tube the lever will fall loose. Upon reinstating the coin tube, it's easy to forget it.

Look at your photo and you'll see that lever indicated by the small arrow needs to be fed into the slot indicated by the big arrow before securing the tube in place.

As for the payouts, I asked about the vertical finger for 3 plums. Without knowing how they are behaving, I can only guess that all is well, but grease may be gunging up the slides or maybe the American coins are too thick if the slides were built for something else. Not enough info.
