I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".

Hi

Have you tried keep pressing the right hand button down. When you press the button down and hold the press, then the sounds are finished, the trains starts driving. When you release the button the train stops at once.

SOURCE: dont know how to change the battery in Thomas Jet engine.

Hey. I was looking for the same thing and found this answer on yahoo answers:
"loosen the phillips-head screw on the underside front center of the jet engine train (you might not have noticed it - it is behind the coupling magnet assembly, which you can move to the side and also has an opening to access the screw) - once the screw is loosened, you can lift up the 'jet engine' from the base to access the battery enclosure"

SOURCE: How do you change the

Go here for the manual http://www.tomy.co.uk/_download/IZFHDBYX.pdf but all you need to do is squeeze the top while pulling the centre wheels forward. This releases the clip on clamps and the top lifts off. AA battery required.

Help please. Lionel (30190) Thomas & Friends remote O gauge. Train won't move. Light comes no, nothing. I took the roof off and made sure the switch was in the on position. ??


First, check to make certain that the batteries in the remote are good.
Second, if the train has been running and the problem is new, clean your wheels and pick up roller on the locomotive, then clean the track.
Make certain that when you use the remote, you orient the antenna in an upright position and are within 6 to 8 feet of the locomotive.
If none of the above helps, contact the Lionel Service Department.

I had the same problem with two of our three engines. I read somewhere that you can get them running by hitting the side of the engine against a hard surface. I can't believe it... IT WORKED! I guess the motor gets stuck and hitting it will get it going. All three engines are working now.
