Has been playing just fine and a couple days ago it quit kicking ball to shooter lane after it drains. the out hole switch is making, I can manually make the out lane switch under the apron and the "O" relay makes and kicks the ball out and it plays fine until ball drains again. I can also manually make the "O" relay and it kicks the ball out. I don't have schematic. can someone tell me what feeds power to the coil on the "O" relay after the ball drains? Thanks

I checked all the relays and there is not a DB relay on the reset bank. there is a PB, ZB, QB, SB and XB.
there is another reset bank that has 6 relays labeled 2B, 3B, 4B etc.
I will look over all the relay switches on the reset bank more closely and see if I find something.
thanks for the info

It's the normally open trough switch that I am manually making to get the ball out. the out hole switch is closed and making contact when the ball is resting in the out hole.

Note: the "O" relay will not activate unless the
bonus unit (if the game has one) is reset to zero (there is a bonus
unit zero position switch).

Got it!! Thanks JoeNewberry! it was the wiper assembly set screw lose on the bonus unit, not letting the wipers make proper contact to the contact disk (wipers not lining up with contact buttons on disk).

I need to find that other thread I was on asking about this problem and thank the pinsider who responded suggesting to check the bonus unit too, which I did check the switch points, but not the disk. Looks like the problem is solved.....Thanks Again!
