« on: November 26, 2009, 07:31:11 AM »

Hello there,

I am new to this forum so please bear with me. I recently bought a late 1970s model 3 reel 25cent slot machine. However i do not know the model number of the machine. On top of that, i do not have a key for the barrel door lock. Can someone please provide me with options? Is it ez for a locksmith to open/pick? or should i just drill it myself and replace the barrel lock? Another question i have is that i accidentally "tilted" the machine while playing and now the machine will not function. i am assuming that the "reset" button is inside the machine? is it pretty straight forward in reseting these "tilt" errors? Thanks for you help!

The barrel locks are very inexpensive.  I purchased one for $6 a a lock store. A lock smith would probably charge a lot more than that to open the door. If you click on foxslots1 at the link at the top of the page, I'm sure he has them for sale.  I would probably dremel or drill the lock out to open the door.  There should be a reset swith on the hopper control board.  You may have a jammed quarter or something.

If the machine is from the 70s it must be electro-mechanical. There is no switch to reset. Open the door by drilling the lock out.(buy a new lock, it’s cheaper than to pay the lock smith) Normally your problem is easy to fix – coin problem - there must be a hopper jam or a coin mechanism jam next to one of the two coin switches.

It would be great to see a model # to see what you have. Is there a tag on the bottom right side? The model # and production date should be on the tag. This is a pic from a hopper board from a e-1000 machine built in 1982. Notice the date.

The Bally EMs do have this; it was Bally's way of handling an empty hopper condition. If it's working as designed, closing the door pushes in the bar and resets the relay that breaks the hopper motor circuit when the timer runs out, although in older machines it is sometimes necessary to push the bar in manually after the breaker is triggered. It prevented the hopper motor from running endlessly and burning out when no coins were detected exiting the hopper.

I found myself at NLG garfield  ..but got lost again on the way home. Scratch Head 2
If found, please email me to myself. Thanks. yes
