OK guys here one for you that have worked on the old tupperware machines with brushed motors.
I had a Alarm 103 the other day and the table ran to the right. I have been tearning the machine down looking for trouble spots.
I found the cable to the X limit switch was worn through to bare wire. AHAH Problem sovled, so I thought.
Limit switch is a Telemecanique XCM-A103, B300, A150, Same Polarity. The wires that come out of the waterproof case are snipped off with Black, Black, Brown, Blue, Yellow, Yellow, wires coming out. I believe we were wired Black & black to the limit switch connector at the rear of the machine.
The way I tested it it looked like the switch was Normally open and closed when roller is depressed, but I am not sure, what is correct? How heavy should the wire be to the rear of the machine?
I was going to open the switch and relace the wires since they are too short to attach to without some clever work. I don't see how to open the case,
Behind the Yellow/white/black printing label are two holes that are filled with white hard stuff. I assume these are the screws? that I need to use to open the case???? I ran some 26 gage wire (it was what I had on hand) but still got the error. Motor and encoder are less than a year old, motor turns until it fails.
Thanks for any ideas.
