I have the 6-34635 Legacy F3 A-A set in the SF Cat Whiskers. This post is concerning a smoke issue with the 6-35637 non-powered A unit in the set. I run them only in Legacy with a CAB-1L.
The unit responds normally to all commands except the Aux1 -8 or -9 command that controls Smoke off or on. The electro coupler fires and the DIR switches changes the lighting just fine. But it takes multiple tries pressing AUX1 and then 8 or 9 (as appropriate) to turn the smoke on or off via command. I’d say maybe on average 6 or 7 attempts before it triggers the desired response.
I thought it might be the CAB1L, but any other units on the track respond correctly and immediately. It’s just this one unit and only the smoke commands that are a problem.
I could probably live with this since I rarely run with smoke (especially these, they make a LOT of smoke!) but I’m one of those guys who likes things to work as designed.
Any thoughts on the root cause and the complexity of fixing?
