Old Viking Rimatron 7M

Post by stressbaby »

Hi folks,

Can anyone provide any information on this machine? I know it was a precursor to the current Viking range but i've just purchased this off a certain auction site knowing it was faulty.
It has two 9volt batteries that are connected in parallel rather than series and i thought this as odd? Should it be a 9 or 18 volt supply? It's giving what I can only describe as a 'falsing' tone at 1 second intervals but the coil seems ok? Several people have suggested it's a power supply issue?
I've desoldered the coil (it's hardwired) and the unit still does the same? Any ideas and does anyone have a circuit diagram they could provide?
I've tried contacting Viking in Blackburn to no avail.
Many thanks
D x;
