Hey there.

Issue with the ball kicker immediately where a ball drains. It constantly fires. Obviously can’t play a game like that. Looked at the switch, it seems fine. Wiring is nice and tight. What would typically cause this?

Thanks,

Eric

For me, I think it would have to be the switch.

With the game off. Clip/disconnect one of the wires going to the switch (make sure the clipped end is taped and doesn't contact any high voltage). See if the coil keeps firing. If that stops it more than likely it is the switch. You can verify it with an OHM meter. If that doesn't do it disconnect the switch wiring harness to the mpu. if it continues to fire your problem is likely on the board. Good luck.

Do you mean that when you turn the machine on without a ball sitting there it fires? If it fires and re-fires, it's the switch or something related to it - if it fires and stays locked on, it's likely something with a driver transistor for the outhole coil.

If you mean it continuously fires after it activates, moving the ball over, but then continuously firing, it's likely a switch adjustment.

It continuously fires with the game being turned on. It can stop for a moment or two, but then continues. Should I replace the switch and see how that works?

Go into switch test and see if the switch reports as being stuck. Stick a piece of paper between the leafs to see if it stops.

Doesn't the 6803 system show closed switches at startup or upon entering test mode for 3 cycles?

Update - resolved.

My Atlantis is a prototype - under playfield is wired very poorly with little organization. There were a couple wires associated with that switch that were actually touching down the line - EEK! Luckily no damage as far as I can tell, wrapped them well in electrical tape.

Thanks for the input everyone - it took me a while to find as it was an unexpected issue.

Peace & Love,
