vibrator contacts and strip

  • Clean vibrator’s contacts and check, as sometimes vibrator fails to respond due to dust or rust over the vibrator’s contacts.
  • Now check the connection of ground terminal, if there is no ground terminal connection than you will not here any beep. Add a jumper wire in this system and connect it with any ground connection.
  • Afterwards check connection between Positive Terminal and Capacitor.
  • Check vibrator strip if it is faulty then replace it, as it cannot be repaired.
