Re: [Amel] Chain Counter

Giovanni TESTA

on the orange disco part in front of the black cilinder there are 2 very little dots, very very difficult to see, counting the ring ahead and reverse . Well these are dirty ! Clean it with a little screw driver as I did. It was ok for me .

Hi Guys, This may have been covered before somewhere here but can anyone provide me with some information on how to diagnose problems associated with my chain counter not working. I have two zeros on the gauge and I suspect the problem is at the magnetic switching device at the windlass.

There are three wires based upon the diagrm on the switch, Brown ( positive), Black which seems to connect via the switching mechanisim to positive as well and a blue wire to negative. I have tried to waver a magnet past the switch with no effect. The switch is manufactured by Etector IFM Electronics with possble identifcation numbers IB5076 IB-3020-BNKG. Any clues?

Best Regards
