    Picked up a fire queen EM and have had several issues to work out and have one left over that I am stumped on.

    Game plays fine untill last ball is sunk.

    Both on 3 ball and 5 ball mode.

    What happens is upon last ball being sewered the score motor constantly runs and game over does not seal in.

    For me that the O (ball return relay) and the W (game.over relay) cycle on and off also.

    Only way I can stop is to delatch the R (hold relay) and then game over is sealed.in ready for another start.

    Also when game is in this resetting/game over limbo the flippers still work and.you can register points.

    Any pointers on what to look at?

    Found the issue, was contact not making on AX relay, in picture it is the yellow with red and yellow with pink contact (first contact on left side closest to contact block screw heads)

    Glad you got it!! I'm currently working on my Fire Queen, can't wait to play it.

    I have a Fire Queen and it did the exact same thing. That AX relay is a bear to get set right.

    Thanks in advance
