Never been able to confirm this, but the only way I have figured this happens, (I've had it happen multiple times in one laundry room - explained to owners to check and fix themselves).

 

The commercial Frigidaire coin accumulator is designed so that you can make it take from 1 to 7, (or maybe 8), pushes of the coin slide before it can start.   This is so that you can make it take more money then one push of the filled coinslide to start a cycle, (IE: you have a coin slide that can only be made to take $1.00 max and you want a wash to cost $2.00 you set the selector cam on the accumulator to 2.  You then have to put $1.00 in the coinslide - push it in, put another $1.00 in coinslide - push it in, then push start).

 

My only explanation is someone puts the money in and pushes the slide, forgets they put the money in and fills the slide and pushes it in again.   If this happens it moves the start cam lever out of the dip in the cam and then you have to push the lever 6 or 7 more times to make it come back to the correct starting spot.

 

The correct starting spot is with the cam lever just starting up the ramp of the flag pointer just before the dip in the cam.  One push of the coinslide turns the cam and the cam lever drops into the dip on the cam, ready for start to be pushed.

 

There's no way that I know of to keep this from happening, it's user error.

i agree with your theory as i have run into this many times, i often show the landlord how to reset it themselves, the only other way i see this happening is the user pushes the slide in far enough for the coins to fall thru but not far enough to fully move the cam lever into start position

But if that was what happened then the next push of the slide with a new load of coins would make it work.

 

The only way for the cam to go past the start dip in the cam is to fully push the accumulator lever more then once.
