Tomix 2229 DE10
« on: May 24, 2017, 04:51:19 pm »
I have very recently obtained this loco in a non-running state. Very new but it simply came to a standstill and was sold(very cheaply) as such. It's a very nice piece and will do nicely as a static but I would be delighted to get it running again. Has anyone got any basic tips as to what to check and in what order? It's unlikely to be a "hopeless case" but I certainly lack the initial expertise in putting things right

Hi there,

What sort of 'non-running state'.....

a - dead on the track
b - short circuit on the track

Both states need you to take the loco apart and test as you go, but state b has possibilities to resolve.

If you strip the loco down...

1 - test the motor direct to the brush plates

2 - test the chassis for pickup from the track

What happens next depends on what you find when doing the tests.

Thanks

ask @railsquid ?

i have a Tomix D15 Bo-Co, which is probably very similar.  - the cab unclips from the running boards, and then the two hoods can be unclipped from the running boards.

the bogies can be pulled off gently.

this should expose the 2 motor terminals - use a 9v battery and 2 croc clips to see if the motor works.

test that the bogies/gear towers are working.

if the motor is dud.... , you have a stationary yard loco!

No idea; normally there'll be a sheet in the box under the polystyrene padding with various installation/maintenance instructions (in Japanese), but I don't own this particular model.

A good place to ask is the JNS forum: http://www.jnsforum.com/community/
