Williams isn't Fun Fest

Friday February 24th 2017

Hi Lloyd-

My game won't go past 3 players. Nothing happens when I push the button for the 4th. Also, the swing reel doesn't always reset to 0 between plays.

Hi Dan

I haven't been in an EM for 30+ years.

Swing reel - I'd be thinking what ever set of leaf blade switches lets it know where zero is, isn't adjusted right.

Player unit - What ever steps it up or down is where I'd start. Needs cleaning, wipers not lining up right, return spring wound too tight.
