Help!

Ball will not eject from both "collect bonus" holes on playfield, bonus value continues to run.

Ball will not eject from out hole.

Coil on coin door start button resets constantly.

Thanks! Ron

Does the accumulated bonus count out?

Where is the score motor switch?

Should I clean the contacts?

And the bonus value registers repeatedly when ball is in the hole, ball will not kick out.

This is the score motor. Numbering starts at the left, and lettering from the bottom up. Easiest thing to do is the loosen the screws a bit and clean the contacts with some 91# rubbing alcohol and a swab, then lightly sand with 600# paper. Be sure no threads from the swab get left behind.

With respect to my good friend, currieddog , I don't recommend getting into the motor unless you're more experienced, or certain it's absolutely necessary.

If you'd like to try a phone call, send me your cellphone number in a private message and I'll make a first reply with a text message.

FWIW, read what another Sea Ray owner had to say here

I don't think the score motor is something to get nervous about as long as care is taken, but I do know that HowardR has a very good rep for problem solving via phone and it would be a good idea to take him up on the offer.

I did, waiting for a reply
I little background on me, I have done fairly extensive work on pins, replacing and cleaning contacts, coils, drop targets, playfield parts, light sockets, etc.
However I am poor on diagnosis, Pinside folks have been very helpful, give me direction with a pic or 2. We have fixed everything so far. I have 3 EMs, love 'em!

Take a look at the score motor contact then. It's 6A. and check 6B while you're at it.

We found that the problem was that the step down arm on the Bonus unit had broken, which allowed the step down solenoid plunger to fall out.

This kept the Bonus unit zero switch in currieddog 's above post #2 from ever closing.
