My Son and I both have an older 6-28051 TMCC EM-l. His does not some hardly at all. And my smoke unit motor pulses. I tested both the smoke unit motor's with a 9 volt battery plugged directly to the motor plug itself. Motor ran good,fan turned good. So I replaced the smoke unit resistor board with a new one. His still hardly produces any smoke. And mine still pulses. I feel that I ruled out the smoke units themselves. So what could be causing the smoke units not to work properly. The rest of the locomotives and tender functions seem to work properly.

Reprogram the locomotive properly.
STEP 1: Move switch on locomotive from run to program.
STEP 2: Turn on Command Base.
STEP 3: Place locomotive on track, then turn on power to track.
STEP 4: Press “ENG” then input locomotive ID#. Press “SET”.
STEP 5: Press ”ENG” then input locomotive ID# again.
STEP 6: Press “AUX 1”, then "74".
STEP 7: Turn off power to track, wait ten seconds.
STEP 8: Remove locomotive from track, move switch from program to run.
STEP 9: Place locomotive back on track. Turn power on to track.
STEP 10: Press “ENG” and ID#, then operate as normal.
John I did exactly as you instructed. My EM-1 does exactly the same thing. The smoke unit still pulses,unless I shut it off. Also I don't know if it's normal but the headlight turns off every time the locomotive is put in reverse. Do you think maybe the R2LC/R4LC board could be bad ? Thanks for your time
The headlight flickers when it's programmed. I followed your directions still same. Got the manual out and did the same thing as you suggested, but they said to use 74 to reprogram the R2LC. Did the same thing, set seems to work. But smoke unit just pulses.
