    When I disconnect the coil while the machine is on it just goes quiet.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    It will be interesting to hear what he says.

    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    Sounds like a loose wire or loop problem in the coil. I had a super 12 for my DFX that overloaded and chattered. I got it for free, so on a whim I banged it up against a wall a few times.

    Worked like a champ ever since.

    Please note, against wall,not the person you acquired it from!. Some times coil problem more evident when detector "wiggled",you seem past that coinstriking,good luck. Hoping logic prevails.

    I don't understand this "Please note, against wall,not the person you acquired it from!."

    Well he contacted me back saying it worked when he shipped it but said we could trade back. So it looks like I'm out $40 bucks for this bullshit deal.

    Sorry, referring to diggit banging detector against wall a few times, knowing temptation to bang it against the person you got it from.

    Glad to hear he didnt give you any problem...sucks about the shipping, but could have been worse. It cost him too, so he must have thought it was working properly. Maybe he knows nothing about tectors.

    That sounds like the coil where it connects at the plug. It's happened a few times to me over the years and now I duct tape it thick at the connection.

    He may have bent the wire stuffing it in the box. Tell him to send another coil if he has one (you said he had 6 of those machines at one time.)

    Otherwise it's $100+ for a new coil.

    If Canada Post weren't such crooks, I'd send you a coil to try out but that would cost me what it costs you to ship the whole machine!

    That sucks man!

    I hope it works out for you.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    I agree with muddyhanz,It's the coil for sure .A couple years back I bought an excellerator coil for my DFX and it worked fine for a year,then one day,turned on and It went crazy.
    One of my MD buddys said check the coil so I put my old coil back and it worked fine end of story.Good luck with it.
