Beeping when knocked

Post by MetalHead28 » Sat Apr 11, 2015 4:32 pm

Afternoon all,

My 150 tends to beep if it takes the slightest of knocks - Does anybody else have this issue? I'm just conscious there could be a loose connection somewhere in the coil?

Cheers,

Steve

is you cable secure around the shaft ? if it is free to move near the coil as you bump the coil the cable moves and it is picked up by the coil and give a tone response. have a look at this link

Where the coil plugs into the control unit wiggle that around .. If the control unit sounds off then you have a faulty lead .. I had this on my 250 and was given a replacement machine under guarantee

If it only sounds off when you hit the ground swinging and not when you wiggle the connector then that's normal

all of the above is good advice plus you could have a faulty coil.
