Hello, is it normal for the ball to jump over the left rail and drains maybe 25% of the time?

Thank you,

Shoot a quick video and post it
Some pinball sleuth will be able to tell you what to do to fix it

Do you mean the ball is falling off of the wire form that runs to the lest side, or the ball is hopping over the left outlane? If it’s falling off the wire form, then is try to slow the ball down. Maybe stack a washer under the bottom screws. But a quick video will help

Doing both, it’s the left rail. It comes in at at such a high rate of speed that it doesn’t drop the ball in the hole, just clears it and drains.

Turn down the speed!

Take the back legs down a bit. When the ball starts jumping flippers or outta the habit trails you have too much incline. Fast is fun, but you get those kind of problems with "too fast."

Makes sense, thank you for the advice. I’m a noob and appreciate the help.
