Anyone else having trouble with the Dragula launch not getting the ball all the way around the orbit? I tried re aligning the coil plunger with the ball as it was off center and just when you think you have fixed the problem it comes back after a few launches. I have also tried adjusting the coil power up and down and it doesn't seem to make any difference at all. It reminds me of the launch on Demolition Man when the ball kind of rattles it's way out of the chute and then stalls out and drops through the roll over lanes. That is exactly what is happening here.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

Ok so how often are you guys getting balls stuck in your lower playfield? Ive played two nights now and had to get in there and fish out a ball both nights. Is this common or am i just getting that lucky? Luckily i have a telescopic magnet that i fish them out with, best tool in my tool box. Just make damn sure that you turn the power off first if you use one to do this.

Here is where mine are getting stuck. It is happening quite often and yes, my lower flippers are set to "soft". Seems I could remove the lower playfield and bend the little tab in tighter that the rear plastic peice is screwed on to allow enough clearance so the ball falls back down onto the playfield. Not sure what to put on the left plastic that would look good to deflect the ball from getting hung up on the wire form though.

Quoted from JimB:

I haven't had a problem but wondering if you added more pitch to the play field maybe it wouldn't get stuck there?

My pitch is at 7.2 the ball goes airborne and lands in there from the top and literally "wedges" itself against the 2 plastics that is why I think if I can bend the bracket back far enough to allow clearance for the ball to fall through to the playfield it would fix the problem. I don't think any amount of playfield angle would make any difference.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

So what are your guys methods for getting the balls unstuck?

The first time I pulled the window out of the playfield. After that, I found a long skinny screwdriver that fit through the slots in the lower playfield and pushed the ball out. When the ball gets stuck on the wire form I flipped the playfield up 90゚ and it falls out. Ironically the last time I did that the other ball fell out of the out hole and got wedged into the plastic behind the machine as shown in the photo. What a pain in the ass!

I was able to fix the the issue where the ball gets stuck on the plastic behind the machine. I disassembled the lower playfield and bent the little bracket in tighter that held the plastic in place and also took a heat gun to form the plastic to fit the curve of the upper arch. I also put a smaller head screw to hold the plastic in place. It is completely out of the way now. I'm still struggling to come up with a nice looking deflection piece to keep the ball from getting stuck on the left plastic below the wire form.

Quoted from drained:

Noticed on the DF stream with the Prem when a ball was stuck on the lower playfield the chat and DF mentioned a rail Stern is adding to LP, and can be requested if you don't have one. Anyone know what this is about ?

Is this where the ball got stuck? This is where it has gotten stuck on mine a few times.

Quoted from lschmidlin:

As a follow up, Chas did respond within a few hours, which was cool. However he said the solution is to cut the lower ring off the wire form. Not sure I want to do that on my brand new game.
Probably just being a baby, but there's something about taking wiresnips out and cutting parts off a brand new wire form.
However, he also said that they will send a new part if you send them your seriel number and address.
Just wanted to follow-up!!

Send a new part meaning what? A new wire form or a new part to install that actually deflects the ball and fixes the problem?

#3405 5 months ago
Quoted from lschmidlin:

New wire form without the ring that is catching the ball. No deflector. Should work.

Thanks for the clarification. I will be contacting my distributor on Monday.

I am doing the 5 1/4" Kenwood speaker upgrade on my premium and was going to install speaker lights. All of the kits I see light up the the whole rectangle speaker panels and I prefer the look of just lighting around the speaker like in this photo. Can anyone tell me where I can order a speaker light kit like this one?

#3600 5 months ago

Still looking for help on this speaker lights mod. I would like to install speaker lights in a Munsters Le like the one in the photo attached
where the LEDs run around the speaker instead of the rectangle housing. No one seems to know where to purchase a kit. If is a custom built set up I'm willing to do the work if I knew what parts were needed. The sad thing is the gentleman that owns the Munsters LE unit in picture attached could put this thing to rest in seconds but he not responding to my pm's so it must be some sort of secret he is not willing to share. It would have saved me a lot of headaches but not a big deal at all I just though the pinsider community was tighter. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I'll take the time to figure it out.

Quoted from Pinwalk:

So when game is over, and I match numbers for a credit, the "pop" sound is super loud. I haven't seen an adjustment to turn the volume down on that "pop", is there one, or do I have to turn sound down for entire game?

Yes it is under standard adjustments number 43 "knocker volume". You can set it to "low" I had to do the same on mine.

Now this is what I call a Munsters fanatic! Saw this car driving today and had my son taken a picture of it while we were stopped.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

It’s jumping the opto. Try putting some sort of roof on that part of the ramp to keep the ball down.

Pinball Life has this item in stock.

Quoted from Squizz:

Did anyone else receive a plastic ramp fix for the right lower mini ramp, where the ball skips the opto 75% of t he time?
Just wondering what yours looked like.

This is what the fix looks like.

Quoted from Who-Dey:

No thats not it but thanks anyway. Someone showed the lower playfield with a big piece of plastic I think that wrapped all the way behind “the machine” in the lower playfield that wouldnt allow balls to get stuck there anymore. I cant find the post now but ill look again tomorrow. Surely i didnt dream this did i? Lol


I'm telling you, just do what I did and your issue will go away forever. Once you remove the lower playfield it is literally a 5 minute fix with no money out of pocket. Slightly bend the little tab down that holds the deflector plastic behind the machine. Just doing this will give you the clearance you need for the ball to fall back down onto the playfield if it hops up on there. And if you have a heat gun you can do what I did and warm up the plastic and form it for a little added clearance for good measure.
