Removal, basic maintenance & repair of Beromat etc. mechanism

Post by thornebt »

Topic moved - Site Admin.

I would like to remove my Beromat innards from the case but can't see how to do it. I can see there are four wingnuts and brackets. Will the whole mechanism then slide right out of the operating handle mechanism and also leave the coin shute in place? Cheers. Bruce.

While holding mechanism undo 4 wing nuts as mentioned and jiggle to the right and the mechanism should free itself from the handle assembly and coin acceptor which are secured to the case |/XX\|

Thought you might be interested in a translation of the German text which is usually pasted in the cabinet:
Please note!
Refill the machine
1. Push the left movable locking lever in the sorter to the left and hold it in this position.
2. Insert coins one after the other into the feed channel of the coin validator, which then run into the payment tubes.
3. After filling up the payment tube, the device should be used as a control until the winnings have been paid out several times so that the slides have filled and the correct payment is guaranteed.
Remove the machine:
1. Loosen the two upper holding clamps, push the clamping plate upwards and then screw it tight again.
2. Unscrew the lower wing screws.
3. Lift the chassis out to the right.
4. Installation is carried out in the reverse order, taking care that the coupling pin is inserted into the driver of the tear-off shaft.
Care and lubrication:
In addition to the general maintenance and lubrication of the machine, which is assumed to be known, it is important to note that the bearings of the drive – inside and outside – are regularly soaked with a few drops of medium, acid and resin-free oil approximately every 3 months.
Under no circumstances should oil get into the centrifugal governor, otherwise the drive will be blocked. On the other hand, the rollers do not require any maintenance, since they run on permanently lubricated ball bearings.
The payout slides are also to be regularly oiled in the holes provided for this purpose, while the outer edge of the slider package must be greased.
It is imperative that the coin validator and the inlet channel from this to the sorter are regularly cleaned of dirt deposits so that the coins run off properly.

Thanks ....
Our very own Mr. P published a translation of that notice. It's on here somewhere (probably Resources) however I can't find it at the moment so can't compare.

Well done tallstory - I'm sure many will find this useful.

BP's correct I put a translated reconstruction of the Novomat Operator Instruction Sheet in Resources (available as password-locked download).

That reminds me - the nearest we have to a Haines Manual for Beromats is lying idle in this Novomat Restoration topic.

Here:

Novomat German pdf

BP - if you can remember what I've forgotten, I'll try to remember what you're forgotten. Hang on... what am I letting myself in for. !OMFG!

You don't want to know what I've forgotten Mr.P, that way madness lays.

Thank you for the translation Tallpenny. Saves me trying to get hold of a German dictionary. A forum member has fixed my non-paying Beromat today and given it a 20,000 mile service. Runs beautifully now. Someone had modified the governer to speed it up but it now runs at the correct speed. Some other adjustments were also necessary. I'm very happy to have it fixed. This is a great forum.

Glad you have it sorted and have returned it to the proper 15 seconds running time. Any chance of a picture (inside and out)?

A couple of photos of my Beromat. The photos were correctly orientated when I attached them but I think the site has rotated them.
(I've swizzled them round for you, it wasn't the site. You'd replaced the mechanism sideways when you put it back in its case BP)


I've got some veneer to replace on the bottom of the front but have a selection of veneers, stains and varnishes so will do some test pieces to get as good a match as possible.

Cheers. Bruce.

Edit: I should add that I didn't rotate the wheels to three bells. The wife got those after just three or four goes!
