I need some assistance on repairing an LGB 26844 Sound Steamer which stopped chuffing sound and the Massoth pulsed smoker stopped working. I installed a new 28-pin replacement decoder that I received from LGB/Marklin Germany and both the chuff sound and the smoker started working again. But then the smoker failed and I replaced the Massoth smoker with a new pulsed unit. I’m now getting the chuff sounds but I’m only getting 6.4 volts from decoder’s track power connector (AUX 6) to the smoker…the smoker heater needs full track power to work properly. The smoker is pulsing but just not burning the smoke fluid. What CV do I need to adjust to increase the voltage to the decoder’s AUX 6 terminal?
Also, I’m using my Massoth Navigator to make the CV adjustments on this decoder. Does anyone know whether I can use my Massoth PC Module or ESU Programming Module to make CV changes to this decoder? Even though the decode is touted as LGB, it’s actually a Marklin mfx/dcc/dc three protocol decoder. I didn’t want to have to buy an LGB/Marklin CS3+ Central Station, but if I’m going to properly repair these newer LGB/Marklin locomotives with their mfx/dcc/dcc technology, do I need to buy it?
