300 bowling pinball machine. Pinball is not kicking through the return to play the second ball. Once the ball enters the return and sit in the kicker hole it its a switch and activates the red bonus balls to count. I believe the pinball should sit in this slot until all the red bonus balls are counted and then the ball should kick out. Ball does not kick out but I can manually fire the relay kicker switch and it will kick out and go to ball two. Sorry if the lingo is not correct still learning.

Wow, it's a bit complicated there, but try checking the make/bread sw. on EE.

Does the Ball Return relay (O) activate when this happens?

No I have to fire (o) relay manually then it will kick the ball out. I found my ad bonus delay relay does not fire? I may start there. Thanks any more info would be great.

If the Ball Return relay (O) doesn't fire after the ball drains and the bonus is awarded, Inspect and diagnose this circuit with Alligator clip jumper wires.
Starting with the 4 indicated switches.

Thanks all, nothing was making since so I went back and did an ohms test on each relay and also fire each relay using a 9v battery. The "I" relay coil which is the ad bonus delay relay was bad. It makes sense now.
