v35 with rip-drive problem

Paint was breaking in hopper, most of the weekend. cleaned hopper at field twice. Had to use the rip-drive most of the afternoon.Got home and cleaned again. noticed one of the eyes is darker than the other. it looks like its burned out. if it is burned out would this cause ballbreaks and the red/green lights to flash, indicating a ball jam? also the hopper was bought last year and has about 4-6 cases through it. thanks for any help.

So when you turn the cone clockwise by hand and let go, it returns to its original position?

As for the phototransistor, it is supposed to be darker than the infrared emitter. It helps to prevent false readings from outside sources.

Check for burrs on the jam spring and then remove the beads to see if that helps. If it doesn't, try reducing the setting to number 2 or 3. With it set above 3 it can break brittle paint.
