SOURCE: My new Lionel CW-80 trans former stopped working

I have had the same problem with my polar express, which i just bought recently. Having to send it to the USA from the UK would be very expensive so i decided to open it up myself. The tamper proof screws were a bit of a problem getting into it. I ground down an old screw driver into the triangle shape to undo them. I then replaced them with self taping srews the same size.
The Problem I found was simple, there is an internal (250V, 8Amp) fuse soldered onto the red wire on the secondary winding of the transformer. The red wire going from the transformer to the PCB, the fuse has black heatshrink over it.
There is no room inside the housing of the controller to fit a fuse holder. I fitted a box on the side of it with a panel mount fuse holder. drilled a hole through the housing, fitted longer red wires, so they could go through to the terminations on the back of the fuse holder.
At least now I can change it simply if it blows again.

hope this is of help to you.

Why did my Lionel fast tracking crossing quit working the bell works but not the gates or flashers


these are real neet , there a combination of a few great items to all in one device , this device consists of two automatic crossing gates , one track automatic detector and of course a automated bell , well first thing to do is to look real careful at the track detector , these wont work if there under any stress or leaning (as this is the principle of there operation) so first see if track is twisted or leaning as it enters the device ? if all is good make sure that detector is not damaged or there isn't any foreign objects down inside it (for me its always those darn pine needles off the tree) , the reason the crossbucks don't light is that gates arnt moving , the switch for them is inside the motor housing that moves the gates

I replace the mothrboard on elite slidding gate but the batery loses power


Since you have a battery and it is a sliding gate, I will assume you have a Roboslide model by Elite. The battery has to be charged in order for the gate to work. The charging comes from a transformer or a solar panel. Check to make sure these have power coming out of them. Most gate operators use a transformer and if the two wires providing the voltage touch each other, it will blow the transformer. If you have a volt ohm meter you can check this. You might need to use the AC setting as well as the DC since some are 18 volt DC and others are 25 volt DC. You can do the same for a solar panel but only use the DC setting.

If this is not your issue, then make sure it is your battery draining and not something binding in either the motor or the gate. Finally, it could be the motor going out. Simply hook the charged up battery directly to the motor to check it. It should respond strongly. Reverse the leads to make the motor go the other way.

Good luck.

\i just got a Canature water softener and ionizer installed, every time it cycles water gets into my water lines and spurts out for about 15 minutes, pipes shake


sounds like a mix of things

if you have pipes not locked tight
and 1ft = 1 clamp spaces

also check any 'gate' type valves are all fully open
use a presure 'keep' valve regulator to turn down the water presure
to 1.5 - 2 bar {60psi}
if you half close a gate valve
then the whole intake can vibrate and sing
even how much you try to wedge the pips

its the gate valves cause issue
in cold water then it uses presure joints and presure makes the seal
but gate valves will bring like the read in a woodwind instrument like a claronete

so your pipes will sing

check all the filters intake valves at the machine filters
and your gate valves on your water supply to the machines hozes

The gate stays down when the power to the train is on


The breaks should be on one of the outside tracks along with a wire to the gate and the ground wire from the transformer is attached to the other outside track. Power wire is attached to the center track and the power terminal on the crossing gate. When the train passes the break the metal wheels connect the ground rail to the rail with the break that is wired to the gate. This completes the circuit and the gate goes down. Once the train passes the other break the connection is lost and the gate goes up.

How to install the Evenflo 42'' position and lock gate


  1. Measure the opening where you want to place the Evenflo gate. An Evenflo pressure-mounted gate will work for an opening between 26 and 42 inches wide.
  1. Pull the cross bar up on the Evenflo gate so that the small metal sizing bar is movable.
  2. Place the metal sizing bar into the slot that matches the measurement of your opening. If your opening is not a full inch, round up to the next full inch and place the sizing bar in this slot.
  3. Set the Evenflo gate in the opening with the cross bar facing away from where your child will be. Make sure the pressure points are above your baseboards.
  4. Press down on the crossbar until the metal U-shaped clamp catches the bar.

  5. Test the gate by gently pushing and pulling on it to insure it stays in place.

The gate isluggish when it goes down. It does not go down all the way. Is rhere an adjustment I can make?


Sounds like the solenoid is binding against the inside of the coil. Did you look underneath to see if some crud got in there?

I lost the instruction Manuel and I need to convert the crib into the toddler bed


First I unbolted the four arms that hold the metal bed support up and pushed it down as flat as I could. I had to do it a couple of times and go kind of slow, to get the loose arms tucked away as best I could. They still stick up a little above the rest of the frame.

After much wrestling with the wooden front panel (gate) of the crib (the one I need to remove), here is what I did:


1. Find the wooden piece that crosses the bed just behind the gate. This is an approximately 1.5-inch by 3/4-inch piece. On ours, it's just above and in front of the drawer under the crib.
2. Find the metal screw at one end of this cross piece. You will see that it is on the outside of the bed, on the short end of the bed, in line with the cross piece.
3. Unscrew it. Note that this screw actually threads into a threaded piece inserted into the cross piece in a little hole on the back side of the cross piece, about 3/4 inch from the end. If this little silver metal piece falls out, you will need to find it and put it back in the hole with the threads facing the screw hole. The piece is the size of a pea.
4. Anyway, use an allen wrench to remove the screw, without losing that little inserted thingy.
5. I'm not saying this is textbook, but I then forced the end of the crib away from the rest of the crib while moving the gate up and down and pulling gently toward me (to pull the gate from its track). You have to move the end of the crib to create about a 1/2-inch gap before the gate will pop free.
6. The gate has two pins on each side, so when you get it freed on the site that you removed the screw on, the other side will come off without removing the second screw on that side.
7. I then got the drawer back on its tracks properly (it jumped the tracks a bit in the process), pushed everything back together the way it was, and screwed the screw back in. (if the screw wont thread, either you lost the aforementioned little silver piece, or that little silver piece is turned in the hold the wrong way)
8. With the gate removed, the crib (now toddler bed I guess) has four little tabs where the gate was once attached. Two I had to unscrew, and the other two I grabbed with a pliers and pulled out.

It wasn't elegant, but I certainly have an intact toddler bed now.

Hope helps. Good luck.
