Got it. I was just trying to maybe help JustClean resolve his issue the easiest way possible.But it would be more helpful to share here in case someone else has the same issue.
Thanks for that. I tried it but nothing. It all seems good. I hate those errors. And the funny thing is I don't even get an error message on the display! It's like the error never happened. Do you guys think this could be a software glitch? I reset the PLC. Didn't make a difference.Got it. I was just trying to maybe help JustClean resolve his issue the easiest way possible.
I was having a very similar, maybe even the same issue. This was when my machine was about the same age as JustClean's Razor is now. My arch was sporadically stopping short of the home position causing a right limit fault on start up test. I tried everything that me and WW Techs could think of including checking prox switches, wires, flag position etc. The problem continued. One day while trying to figure it out I began shaking the arch (for what reason I do not recall) and I noticed that when I did the shaft on the trolley gear box (the one with the cross shaped flag) would turn. Therefore throwing off the flag position. We determined that the gear box was worn. Replaced that and having had an issue since.
I was also told by a WW Tech that there is a way to know correct position of that flag which I described in an earlier post. My WW distributor techs didn't even know that fact. You run your arch as far as it will go to the driver side with it rotated to 90. The flag should be straight up and down directly over the prox in that position.
Done! I can't push it. If I try it very hard I might get less the 1/2 inch moving. It doesn't look like the gearbox.Put the arch in the middle of the bay and then push from each side.
I NEVER keep used parts as spares. If both parts work I put the old one back in and keep the new one as a spare. Otherwise over time you will end up with many problems on your machine as you never know if that old spare part is the problemSeems logical. One could always keep the used one for a spare if the new one does not fix the issue.
I wouldn't bother doing that. Everytime I've had one fail I could push it. Sounds like your gearbox is fine.Done! I can't push it. If I try it very hard I might get less the 1/2 inch moving. It doesn't look like the gearbox.
When it gets a bit quieter I will remove the motor and turn the gearbox by hand to see if I can feel something.
Yes. The machine stops a foot before the final home position (east-west) after final rinse. Stop light still on for next customer but no drive-out light. I have to manually drive it in home position. As soon as I do this everything is good again....and still no error message.Do you have to reset your arch when it happens? Mine showed right limit fault.
It just happened right now.if it slams into the end position then it’s not reading your right limit prox. It IS weird that you aren’t getting a fault code. The next time it does it I would 1. See where the prox switch is in relation to the flag and see if it’s lit up 2. See what your Wash Status says (it’s probably going to say “start up test”). Do this before you move the arch at all.
