    What series trap is it. Sounds like the switch under the turret needs adjusting, Or clean all the debris out from around the switch.

    What Jim said. Is it a "G" series trap? We've replaced the switch about every three years.

    Alan, check the switch under the turret. We had the same thing happen to one of our machines and we found that the arm on the micro switch was broken. We replaced it with a new switch and adjusted the switch. I think that once a pat trap goes out of time it stays out of time until it is fixed or retimed. From what I have seen on the new pats they have done away with the switch under the turret. That is a big improvement. Those switches usually go bad during a tournament. I have never had one go bad during regular practice.

    You can change that switch in about 15 or 20 minutes. It is not a big job.
