After cleaning my Zaccaria Circus the score motor keeps rotating and the ball eject keeps firing (also the 10 point switch in the backbox is making a constant contact + buzz sound). This all happens after i press for the first game (and after all the score and reels resetting ).

It all worked yesterday, help is really appreciated!

Fixed the ball ejecting...the 2 wires of the hole-apron-switch pressed against each other, (that hole under the apron), now searching for the closed 10 pointer...

Got it working but now the Lock relay stays energized...should that be the case? Any tips are welcome.

Quoted from Mikala:

Lock relay closed is normal operation when playing

Ahh Thats why the relay paper-wrap is a bit on the brown side...thanks!

Now not all the lights for the advance bonus-bar light up (some do), first tried new lights, but that did not help. So problem must be somewhere else; Tried rotating a smaller stepper unit by hand (the one that fires when i press the related advance bonus roll over on the playfield) also did not help. Is for em machines the advance bonus controlled by a stepper unit, or could that be de score motor?

thanks Pahuffman and rolf_martin_062 for the tips!

the stepper unit of the Circus goes only one way, and no reset..weird...going to make a photo of that one and post it here.

The lights turn on depending the bonus state, but some dont lit, but there is still an advance in the bonus.
Also with the game over you will see the lights doing a quick countdown (2000-1500-500 etc but some light dont work, so thats my main problem; is the current for the lights also going trough the stepper unit? I cleaned the unit, but maybe i have to clean it more. Also when i rotate the unit manually by pushing the coil the light dont go up.

maybe its just the lamp sockets, but they look fine to me.

Now everything worked, but suddenly when i score >1000 the 1000 coil keeps buzzing (does not turn off) is the off connector located somewhere else in the machine, anyone knows?
