Bell fruit electromechanical

Recommended Posts

Hi if a bell fruit electromechanical turns on but dont register a coin but then you press a button on one of the relays then the reels turn around how would it be fixed properly so a coin does register ? How would you clean the contacts if thats whats needed ?

First try ALL the coin switches by hand, the wire that the coins push down once through the mech may not be getting pushed down far enough to make the switch work.

this will also test all or if any are actually working.

Here is a coin mech out of a Bell Fruit electro. the switch is marked with yellow arrow, it's the thin wire from that white plastic bit on that switch which is tripped by coins dropping out the bottom of the mech. The wire can be tripped by hand too, If none of the switches on all the mechs still don't work then looking for another fault. the switch may not be black and could be blue even red in colour.

I thought the coin switch would of been one of those busy b switches with the lever and If you press it down manually you will get credits , can you please point out this white plasitic bit and the thin wire please , how can this wire be tripped by hand and does that mean the mech will take coins again ? Thanks

That's right they are the busy bee type and could be a different colour however if it's a later electro mech it could have the anti strim black plastic cover fitted to the back of the mechs in which case the coin switch will be hidden within the black cover.

Any pictures of the machine and inside the back would be a great help to identify.
