1. PERIODIC CLEANING – Over a period of use, various debris and ball fuzz will begin to build up on the interior of the ball machine cabinet. This should be cleared away periodically to avoid excessive build-up that could clog mechanical parts. Use a damp cloth to wipe down both the interior and exterior surfaces of the machine. Very gently use a dull object to help break away large clumps of debris. Never scrape at the surface of your PLAYMATE ball machine with a sharp object, or use any harsh abrasives or solvents. Loose debris can be vacuumed out of the ball machine cabinet.
Never use a hose to attempt to spray debris out of the interior of the machine. Excessive water pressure can damage the sensitive electrical components, as well as increase the risk of electric shock.
NOTE: On a regular basis, compressed air should be used to blow ball fuzz and/or debris away from the ball switch area located underneath the black feeding disk near the ball drop hole on the top of the ball machine. Ball fuzz also builds up underneath the same area which can be accessed by turning the ball machine completely upside down and blowing with compressed air. The ball feed wire that goes over and across the feeding disk should be inspected to make sure that it is perfectly straight and not bowed in any way. These maintenance steps are essential for the proper function of the ball machine as well as the safety of ball machine users.
2. STORING – When the machine is not in use, it should be stored in a proper and secure fashion. Ideally, it should be placed in a dry and clean area that offers shelter from the elements. Even though the ball machine is constructed from anti-rust aluminum, excessive exposure to wind, rain, sunlight, etc., can often interfere with the operation of the sensitive electrical components, and cause fading and/or other damage to the finish.
