No vibration

Electrical

  1. Check to see if the power is off or the controller is turned down or off.
  2. Check to see if a fuse has blown.
  3. Check the connections.
  4. Check for broken wires.
  5. Check the coil. It may be overheated or shorted out.

Mechanical

  1. Is there a gap between the coil and the striker plate?
  2. Is the bowl making contact with any other equipment?
  3. Check the springs.  These can sometimes break at the edge of the base lug or the edge of the cross-arms. Check the welds and bolts for any breakage.

Slow, irregular vibration or loud abnormal sound

Electrical

  1. Is the input voltage fluctuating?
  2. Is there a loose connection?

Mechanical

  1. Check all bolts for looseness or breakage, especially bolts holding spring packs together.
  2. Is everything level?
  3. Is the bowl overloaded?
  4. Is the bowl making contact with any other equipment?
  5. Is the table or plate causing interference vibration? Stands/tables must be level, rigid, and of adequate strength, or they can set up their own resistant vibration. This can hinder or cause a problem with the bowls proper vibratory function.
  6. Is the coil gap too close or too far?
  7. Is there excessive dirt or oil in bowl?
  8. Is the base unit improperly tuned?
