I have an old RS machine that just quit. The problem is in the circuit board. I had two rectifiers and the condenser replaced that didn’t test out. We retested all the components and they all appear to be good. I am told that we can’t go further unless we have a circuit board diagram. HELP !!! does anyone know where I can get a diagram. I can’t get any return from the number listed for the manufacture. Wester Gem appears to be a dealer, but I don’t have a phone number or email address to ask them about it.
i had gotten water in my machine and did in the circuit brd. i also had a weak bad motor after running it for 48 yrs. i contacted rick scott the owner and ordered a new motor and control brd. although pricey, a bit, was quite worth it and machine is still knocking them out. he also gives you the info for the connections of newer board. you can contact me if you please i can give you the contact info i have for rick. email@example.com. i also make dops and other thing for the raytech including an adapter to replace the little quill collar with one for using regular short standard dops,1/4″, and don’t have to use the long ones.
i need to add more info for raytech users. when i said week motor some of the early machines had brass bushings instead of bearings as bearings. the brass wears till the shaft can move out of alignment and it will start failing. another thing, i have a friend club member whom has a raytech and it quit working, he would turn the control up but would only run if he hand spun the lap to get it started. i removed the bottom to check the belt– ok — but then i opened the brush caps and checked the brushes, they were shot/ completely worn out. i have ordered brushes from rick scott so it, machine should be back up and running soon. if anyone is using a raytech and have been for a long time it would be good to check out the motor brushes before it causes problems.
