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?

Quoted from slochar:

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?

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,
