The left side of my Diner machine does not light.  Any thoughts. 


Thanks

This could be one of many issues, most are simple, but often they are tough to find.
Since it is not the entire backboard that is not lit, I would assume that the Fuse is OK, and you are looking at a connector issue.  I would start by looking on the main power board in the back box and locate the General Illumination (GI) light connector, it's probably a 9 pin connector close to the relay.  Either that connector or the 6.3 VAC input power conector to that board next to it are probably "toasted".  They should be a nice white, but are more likely brown, or some shade tending in that direction.   If so, you will need to replace both the connector on the board AND the one on the cable.  If those look fine, check for a broken wire going to the string that is out.

Good Luck.
