Smoke machine repair

A smoke machine repair, brought to my Newark workshop by a Grantham based DJ.

This is a fairly simple unit: A power supply, a thermostat and a relay to control the power to the smoke heater. There is also an external remote on a 6.5mm 3 pole jack cable.

The customer was finding that the relay sometimes did not switch on the heater. The problem was intermittent, meaning that it would sometimes happen, but sometimes it would not! Despite filling my workshop with smoke on many occasions, I couldnt replicate the fault.

Upon investigation, I discovered that the jack socket had a slightly loose sleeve connection so I replaced the socket with another. After a bit more smoking the problem still didn’t manifest itself, so I returned the unit to the customer.

If you have a smoke machine repair for me, please get in touch.
