Checking list before sending a ST-1000 machine for repair:
Please read this checking list before sending your machine for repair:
Checking No. 1: BE SURE THAT NO CARDS REMAIN WITHIN THE SHUFFLER!
Pull out the side tray, and look into the machine. There might stuck one (or more) cardsheet(s) — or other objects — somewhere in the machine, which must be taken away. You can also open the top door, detach the plug of the A/C adapter, lift the shuffler, turn it upside-down, and shake it gently to all directions.
Checking No. 2: ARE YOU USING CARDS THAT MEET OUR SPECIFICATION?
There are many variations among different cards. We recommend 100% plastic COPAG poker size cards. Other cards may work, but we have done most of our testing using COPAG. If the machine is running but jamming repeatedly, please be sure that you test your machine using clean, undamaged COPAG plastic poker size cards before sending for repair.
Checking No. 3: CLEAN ALL ROLLERS AND KICKERS.
Follow the instructions in our manual to clean the rollers and kickers using a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol.
Checking No. 4: TRY THE UNIT ON THE TABLE.
If the machine is malfunctioning while installed in your table, try running the machine on top of your table. In many cases, improper flush mount installation can cause the machine to malfunction. For example, if the bottom bar on the mounting kit is overtightened, it may compress the bottom of the unit, reduce tension on the elevator belts, and cause the elevator to malfunction.
Checking No. 5: VERIFY THAT CENTER TRAY DIVERTERS ARE PIVOTING UP AND DOWN FROM BOTH THE FRONT AND REAR OF THE MACHINE.
The center tray diverters pivot down from both the front and rear of the machine to guide the cards from the side trays to the center tray. If one or both are stuck, the cards will not flow smoothly, and may turn upward or flip over, causing jams and mis-shuffles.
If you have done all above and still decide to send us your shuffler for a repair, please see our Contact page for our complete address.
