I have owned this machine for about 20 years. It had its quirks like the coin alarm occasionally going off and needing reset by key when inserting a quarter, but that is not the reason for my post.
Last night I plugged it in for the first time since New Years. Nothing. Nadda. Toggle the power switch up and down a few times (we leave the power in the on position and use the cord to on/off)…dead.
The wall socket has power. Verified that first.
I opened the door and checked all 4 fuses (only 3 are being used however) and they all looked good and all fuses passed basic a continuity test.
There is a small electrical socket inside the machine by the hopper that I plugged a small lamp into which illuminated so I am getting power that far.
I am suspecting the power supply box perhaps? It says 5-522 made by Nemic Lambia. Has V1 V2 V3, each being 5v, 12v, 12v respectively.
I opened it up and saw a small fuse soldered to board..got hopeful. It was good.
I have a very basic multimeter. Was considering checking the voltages on the out terminal screws to determine if the power box is still putting out the right levels. I noticed two two larger brown capacitors had a little swelling on the top. Not much but they were not flat either.
