I should probably point out it is pre 99

There is suppose to be a light when you turn it on. Also you should be able to hear the solenoid click. Open it up and let's see a picture of it. You might even have to time the carrier. I'll post the measurement picture tomorrow. All Rainmakers function the same, they just had different boards.

I don't remember a light on there, but definitely you would hear that solenoid click.

check the wiring from the battery pack to the board and back to the solenoid. Look for flat spots that got caught in the covers or frame and squashed. Make sure the wires are attached well to the battery holder. When the packs fall out, they yank the wires.

Also, I don't think there's anything that enforces the orientation of the power switch and it could be upside down, so check the trigger with the switch in both positions. You can tell by looking at the wires which way is on, the end with wire on it, while there is another wire toward the middle.

That looks like a nice stock rainmaker.

You've now fried the board.

The older boards are not supposed to be run on 9v with a voltage regulator to drop the voltage to 6v.

There is a light on the board. It's not soldered on in the picture.
