Jennings J400 Coin Return and Diverter coils dont work

Postby lilmac55 » Sun Dec 26, 2021 12:30 pm

My Jennings 400 coin return and coin diverter coils are not working. When I turn it on the coins just drop thru. I have checked the voltage across the coils in place and they read zero volts. The diverter coil I don't know how long it hasn't work because I kept taking coins from the hopper but recently the hopper started to over flow. A few weeks after that the coin return coil stopped working.

Got the coin return coil working. So the machine is now operating again and pays out. All the coin go to the cash box. Coin diverter coil does not energize with the hopper full or empty. Pretty sure coil works because the resistance on both matching coils is 240 ohms. Diverter coil is not getting voltage. Does anyone know where it is feed from.

Slowly building a knowledge base on E2000 series Bally machines and J400 Jennings. Started with the antique Mills and Jennings. Getting there...

Thanks I had the manual but I am hoping the schematics help.

Thank you Ramegoom but the schematics don't show the diverter coil. Does anyone have anything showing the diverter coil. Still hoping.

Note the transistor identified as the "Coin Lockout" to the left of the long row of resistors.

I think that' s the component you're looking for.

Do you or do you Know any one that can repair a J400 1 line 5coin logic board or replace with one in good working condition?

lilmac55,

There is another forum that deals with new games. It's called New Life Games http://newlifegames.com/nlg/index.php. There is a member who goes by "Op-Bell" who has a lot of experience with the J400. He has even re-designed some boards. You may check with him as I'm sure he can straighten out your issues.
