VIBRATION METER - TROUBLE SHOOTING
NOTE: Make all checks using ohmmeter and with ignition key in "off" position, except as noted.
Meter reads very low.
Core stack gap may be too wide.
Shim to adjust gap to .010".
Primary ground connection may be
Inspect and repair if connection is not
Meter does not operate.
Power supply may not be intact.
Check in control box for 12V DC
across terminals H1 and H2. (Key
"on" for this check.)
Actuating arm or link may be
Inspect (at right end of roll) - repair or
replace damaged parts.
Wire cord may have internal break.
Coil may be burned out. (At actuating
Check primary winding (H1-H2) should
read approximately 26 ohms. Check
secondary winding (X1-X2) - should
read approximately 1400 ohms. If
either reading has very

Rectifier may be burned out.
Disconnect either terminal #7 or #8.
Check resistance across 7 and 8.
Then interchange probes and again

Choke may be burned out.
Check across leads. If resistance is
high, choke needs replacing. (Normal
resistance is approximately 1 ohm.)
Meter proper may be burned out.
