Greetings! I hope someone can help with this problem. I have a Bally Hang Glider where the ball won't kick out from the outhole. The machine was playing fine about two years ago, but then I had to put the machine in storage. So, now I just took the machine out of storage and I'm trying to get it to play again.

So, when I start a game, everything resets as it should, ball count shows ball 1 on the backglass, but the ball won't kick out to the shooter lane. I can take the ball and put it in play and everything scores properly. When the ball goes in the outhole, it will count down the bonus, but after the bonus counts down the ball won't kick out to the shooter lane and the ball count stays on ball 1.

I know the outhole kicker is working, because when I activate a target or rollover that adds a bonus, it will also activate the outhole kicker. So, say when the ball is in play, and the ball rolls over the upper right rollover, it will score and add a bonus correctly, but it will also activate the outhole kicker. I'm not sure where to go from here. I do have the schematic for the machine. Thanks for your help!

It sounds like a problem with the bonus unit. Check the zero position blade switch is working properly. Check if the unit isn’t sluggish returning to zero.
Check to see if the outhole relay pulls in when bonus is increased and outhole coil fires.

Likely this M/B score motor sw.
