Tattoo Machine Troubleshooting
#A132 Machine does not run
The Armature Bar is jammed down
and touching the front coil.
It cannot move up and down.
At rest, the armature bar is not touching
the front coil. Room to go up and down.
|Armature Bar Setting Troubleshooting Answer # A132|
|Problem||Machine does not run.|
|Because||Armature Bar is not in proper position. It is
down on coils.
|Check||Armature Bar Spacing with machine off.
1. The armature bar should be above the coils,
and not touching the coils.
2. Contact screw must be touching the front spring.
|Why||Space must be left between the armature bar
and the coils so that the armature bar can
go up and down.
|Cause||The Contact Screw is turned too far down and pressing
Armature Bar Assembly down onto the coils. It cannot move up and down.
|Remedy||Unscrew (Back-Off) the Contact Screw
to provide clearance.
