    How much time should it be set for. We replaced the 8 and 11 pin relays and replaced the switch under the turret. All works well and the trap goes from left to right. Occilates for a long time before stopping. Mostly throws center to left hand targets with an occasional right target. When inside the house the trap does go to the right to the desired angle but does not seem to ever stop for a right hand target to be thrown.
    Is it the timer or a limit switch? Its a pretty day here finally and headed out to range to work on it so it will be ready for tuesday evening practice.

    Thanks

    Replace the timer with another if you have one, or switch with another pat. Ther are several micro switches built into the timer.One may be bad.. Let us know what you find..

    Swap out the interrupt unit with another unit and see if all works well. I kept our defective one as a back up in case one ever went completely out. Ray

    I have pulled the relay, turned the wheel 180 degrees, and re installed it. I would try this first, they are not cheap.

    I set the timer to a shorter interrupt interval. Works great now !!!!

    Cool Beans! Those critters are nearly $200, IIRC.
