Quoted from kpull:

When the Thing lights are lit and you shoot the Thing shot, he will pick up the ball then put it back after Gomez yells at him.

Thing taking and returning ball is a 5 million bonus because you lite up THING on the speaker panal.

Happy Birthday Raul..Gomez..wow been gone that long already? In his honor I was already planning on rebuilding both lower flippers today, now I'll knuckle down and get it done.

Quoted from labnip:

Little known info about Gomez

Great Picture Thanks!

#558 3 years ago

There are several switches that could use a good cover!

#586 3 years ago

There's the classic "smoke" cloud, put on 99% of Addams at production. The Australia guy when he had rights before planetary pinball, made the black cloud, and clear. The original smoke much harder to recreate.

#589 3 years ago

Yellowish??? Humm, ....I'd say that's sun damage like my destroyed Hurricane Topper. Best way to describe the original smoke cloud topper is....looks like you have to take it off and clean it because it's really dusty on the inside.

#590 3 years ago

This add of an original smoke cloud topper is in the marketplace right now. You can seen what I mean by dirty and dusty look.

Same here, ramp diverter always made that noise as long as I can remember. I seen a few with black sticky felt quite it down a bit, but I like it loud, wakes thing up to make his shot into swamp. Side note I've always pulled my hands away from flipper buttons till shot is made, the twap of diverter tells me when.

Hi, this is my first post on this forum.

Welcome to the family branlon8!
Modding out Addams is the one pin it's fun to get creative on. You will see many ideas going back and looking at this forum club.

#645 3 years ago

I have a set, 2 pieces , of upper cab only TAF cabinet back box decals. Amazing new condition. Next generation Mr pinball, made about 2 years ago. Only the 2 pieces, the other 3 went on a cabinet that already had head done.
$125 including shipping.
Pm me if interested.
Thanks Eric

#650 3 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

guys can someone explain how when the pop bumpers stay lit in this game? Just joined the club and my pops work fine but they stay on during certain times, off others. what's the reason behind this?

Well, is there a pattern or reason for pop bumper lighting???
Damn good question and I look forward to other opinions.
First ball testing your question, only one blue lit before I shoot. During this ball, it seemed that once I got couple mansions, hit cousin it, and quick multi ball. Once I hit it once, yellow turned on, missed quick multi ball, ended ball with yellow and blue lit. Ball 2 , 3 are lit before I plunge. Red is also on now. At first was thinking success on one mansion lit yellow. Was thinking completing a mansion lit a pop bumper, I don't think so. Each new ball lights a pop bumper, maybe,...It's not thing lit up on speaker panel, I have 3 lit pop bumpers and only , T and H one in speaker panel. 5 letters in thing, 5 pop bumpers, not finding a match on that theory.
Ball 3 was no help, made several mansions, but then when I got multiball through the vault, all 5 pops lit up during multi ball. When it ended, 4 where on.
So in conclusion, I have no idea, thought of same thing for a few year's now.
Anyone else have an idea.
Document a game , I want to see other patterns and figure this out to.

#651 3 years ago
Quoted from RussMyers:

Read through the rules; they explain how and why the pop bumpers are lit.

Thanks Russ, I've read rule sheet before, but mind more open to see it this time.
So each of G R A V E lights each pop bumper.
I will test it when I get home.

Color DMD designed for the Gold roms, I feel that's the best reason to have the Gold roms installed!

#764 3 years ago

Color DMD works with both roms. However , there are more animations with the gold set installed. Only known flaw with original roms is sometimes the jackpot reward Clip blink or go to black and white, gone in a flash so hard to notice.

No, thats the going rate. Exactly what i paid. Your forgetting the free shipping. To large for parcel post, priority mail for size and weight.
I could lower it to $150, with $25 priority mail. I just skipped that step. MARCO'S has it to for slightly higher with $10 ship.
Not trying to make a buck or rip people off, just get back what i paid.
Your third example is the smoke version, not as popular.

#1451 2 years ago
Quoted from Syco54645:

Can you point me in a specific direction? I need to place a bulb order soon as I ran out of a few colors for inserts.

Frosted warm retro bulbs. Comet has them. Also good practice to aquire some neutral density ND theatrical lighting gels. If any bulb is bright, cut little square over bulb. Can also take gels and cone a bulb to add direction of beam.

Quoted from AlexSMendes:

Well, accomplished it yesterday... Not sure yet how or why it triggers... I didn't have any balls locked, but had just completed the THING lights on the speaker panel..

You hit the ramp twice when it was lite. You have to accomplish a mode, go through pops around clockwise than get the ramp when stars are lite, very hard, light is only on for maybe 2 seconds. Ive only done it a couple times in a 1000 plus games.

Quoted from fiberdude120:

I am looking for some help. My TAF went from working

Unplug machine from wall, a must for this one. Now open powerbox, ie, what your on off switch is connected to. You will have to pull glass and open her up.
Inside power box ia a thermistor and a varistor. Replace both, there 25 plus years old.
Problem fixed, been there done that, exact symptoms you described.
Not to be a now it all, but if there is a pin i own that i know every square centimeter of, ots Addams.
Dont let my time on pinside judge me, ive been around the block on this craft.

#1473 2 years ago

The red wire with grey disk red wire on left side is the thermistor, the green disk is varistor. Originally i found this on pinwiki.
Marcos has both, 5 bucks for both.

IMAG0376 (resized).jpg

#1474 2 years ago

The grey disk wears out and wont hold power flow properly. Since your in the box, not always easy to unscrew and get out and off, might as well replace both.

#1477 2 years ago
Quoted from Bronty:

I sincerely hope for your sake that someone far more knowledgeable than me will chime in, but I wonder if its an opto issue?

Whats not working?
Feeling lucky today?

Quoted from jbovenzi:Salute to Eric! What a diagnosis!
Very well done sir!

Thanks man. I am pretty confidant on this one. Happened to me on a Gilligans Island first, then an Addams, then a Fish Tales. On the third time in say 2 years, I knew then the target time on this part was about 25 years. I keep several varistors and thermistors in the tool kit now. There all going to need it eventually.

#1478 2 years ago
Quoted from Bronty:

Does anyone one have a spare thing motor and gearbox assembly they might want to sell? (part 14-7966). I can't seem to find any online except for one on ebay that doesn't ship outside of the US. The major parts dealers are either out of stock on their website, or out of stock when you ask.

The thing motor rarely goes bad. Its moving right? So you dont need a motor unless its frozen or smoking. Do you smell a burn smell?
Its a switch, not opto. Has the problem gone away since last reporting?
Trick is in testing modes. Switch test and motor test, in motor test if the speakers make a ding noise when its going back and forth, its not the switch, the ding noise is the switch.

#1481 2 years ago
Quoted from Bronty:

Welp, the latest is that the thing started making an unholy noise when operating. I immediately shut it off. Started taking stuff apart, disconnected the motor from the gearbox and hand tested whether the gears turn smoothly. In one direction they do in the other they stick. Didn't feel confident drilling out the rivets and monkeying around in the gearbox so planned on just replacing the part which pfinny was kind enough to order for me (seller wouldn't ship outside US).

Well there you have it Thing!
Sounds like tbe motor now based on your info. Ive been super busy this week or i would have responded sooner. I almost pm you to offer same solution on getting you a motor.
Let us know once shes back together. If you have the gold roms you can turn off thing and still play the game till ypu get it.

#1484 1 year ago
Quoted from fiberdude120:

Got the parts today,installed and the game works like a champ. Thanks Eric that saved me a lot of headaches.

Good news. Whenever I buy a pin, its the first thing I check, these are old mechanical devices. Start from wall and work your way to boards. Easy fix with basic solder knowledge.

Quoted from jzdziarski:

Hey there. Recently bought a TAF table for our game room. I’m curious what the “Install 5-Ball” option does other than change some minor behaviors. Can you actually load two more balls and have 5 ball multi ball? It seems to be different than simply 5 balls per game, which is another setting. The manual doesn’t go into too much detail. Thanks.

No, its a 3 ball game. Trough only registers 3 balls. 5-ball , 3 -ball is how many balls played during game.

#1741 1 year ago
Quoted from Westcb:

Finally got mine about a month or so ago. Been slowly changing out worn targets, broken plastics, rebuilding flippers etc. Once I got those knocked out started adding a few mods like cabinet decals, plastic protectors, cliffys etc. Speakers were shot so replaced with flipper fidelity speakers, armor had surface rust so bought some steel ones and had them powder coated. Coin door was rough so changed it out and added a LED color dmd. It’s cleaning up nice and I have been trying to hold off on over modding if there is such a thing
The problem is the more I do to it the more I want things like all new cabinet art etc. and if I do that then I’m sure I would want a new play field so figured I’ll leave a little wear on it. The shooter rod is a little dinged up so I think that might be one of the last things I want to do but haven’t decided on which one yet. I saw a few posts up that original rubbers were more of a a purple color but I I’m guessing those are no longer produced but now I sure do want them. I did have a 5v reset issue of some sort but after plugging in one of those kahr boards it immediately fixed it, so I haven’t been as motivated to track down the original cause but it’s on the list for now. On someone else’s pic I saw little covered that his the switch I the stair case ramps, is that a add on or did the game originally have those?

Welcome Honored Guests...

#1744 1 year ago
Quoted from JMK:

Anybody catch the season finale of Ray Donovan tonight?
There was a dialogue between a few of the characters ('Bunchy and his bartender') referring to Addams Family representing to pinball what the Mona Lisa was to the Renaissance.
Thought that was kinda cool.

Great metaphor!
Wonder who the writers are?

Quoted from mikusm:

A little help fellow TAF owners. When I purchased my TAF it was missing the thing eject solenoid and bracket. I ordered the bracket from Australia (thanks previous blog) and the solenoid from Marco. The book calls for an AE-30-2000 and the Marco coil received had the same part number on the tag, however, after installation the coil isn't strong enough to get the ball out of the hole. It's making contact and moving it. I have tried changing the angle a bit with spacers to get the shaft more lined up with the bottom of the ball but no luck. Any ideas? Could someone also send a picture of the outhole and shaft with a ball sitting in so I can see where exactly it's supposed to hit?

Did you install a coil sleeve in solinoid? Is there a spring on the metal shaft?
And to clarify, your talking the coil down at the thing big metal box?

Quoted from biscoseattle:

Hey all!
New to pinside and considering buying my first pin. I’ve really had my heart set on Addams Family and I found one in my area at a reasonable price. All working condition, play field with slight wear but it has magnet burn (which I think is pretty typical). I’d plan on getting the fuse kit as many have suggested but how worried should I be about the burn as a signal of pin condition? Any thoughts or guidance?

I wouldnt worry about it. I see the burn circle. You can buy an overlay decal to make that vanish. Install fuse kit on all 3 magnets so that wont happen again.

#2227 1 year ago
Quoted from biscoseattle:

I'm not to concerned with the look as long as its better than the burn but can the decal cause other issues down the road?

Indeed, its a stick on.
Decals cause no issues. You just want to make sure there isn't any wax or novis on playfield area.
Wet apply, meaning , just a little windex to slide it around and get it on perfect....dont touch. Wait about 5 hours for that to dry.
Now, wipe playfield down and appky novis 1 as a base coat wax for playfield. Good to go.
I have the mansion overlay on mine and it doesnt bother me or effect gameplay.

Quoted from dnaman:

Does anyone else have an issue with the ball dropping off of the main habitrail?
This was an issue with some frequency and then after cleaning and buffing the pf, it was happening all of the time. I will have to check the pitch but aside from that has anyone else had this problem?

Very common. If there is speed ball can fly off, and fly off right into swamp.
Who would be interested in a new wire form with extra guard rail opposite player to hold ball on? Just curious. I DONT have them yet.
Try also making sure pitch is at 6.5 deg.

#2353 9 months ago
Quoted from hawkmoon:

I would be "IN" for that one Eric!!!!

Thanks Hawkmoon, that was fast response.
Hope Houdini treating you nicely.
These two titles compliment each other. I play several Houdini, then kick ass on Addams.
The wire form ive been toying with for over a year. This may just happen in 4th quarter.

#2363 9 months ago
Quoted from dnaman:

Hi Eric.
I will check the pitch to be sure, haven't gotten around to playing it in a couple of days.
The ball often falls off on the front side so a far side rail guard wouldn't help me at this point. I would however be interested in knowing if someone is planning to run the spiral TZ habitrail. I think that would be cool!

The TZ spiral was a cool mod. Only about 20 were made. I did have the pleasure of trying it out once. It wasnt always 100% making the loop, its flaw was not enough downward pitch.
Ball coming off front?
Wow, maybe your pin is to steep?, opposite of what i get. Full cage wire form would look odd on game visually, just so used to factory look.

Leveling the bookcase is tricky. Here's what I found. First, you have to step away from it. Maybe take some phone calls, or play a different pinball machine. Then quietly sneak up on it, acting nonchalant, like you don't really care. Adjust the washers and nuts one last time. Suddenly it will be level.

Quoted from TicTacSeth:

So here’s a question, I’ve been playing this Addams a good many times in the week we have had it, and am noticing the shot to the middle ramp seems to always go to the left flipper and never across the wireform to the right flipper. Does the player control this somehow or is it just not working?
Assuming not working haha

Does the diverter work in tests?
Bear ramp = wire form to right flipper.
Thing flips = to mini flipper.

Indeed. Rather strange too because I would've assumed if priced reasonably it would sell very well.
I know the pop doesn't do any damage but it doesn't sound great. If I could buy a plug and play board that just splices in without any fuss (like the WPC 5v daughter board) I'd be all over it.

Anybody getting the CPR mirrored backglass for Addams, 3 versions available.?

Quoted from Durzel:

Considering it, but would like to know how complete it is. From the sounds of it you still need to buy and fit trim all around? For the price I'd like to think it would be supplied ready to install.

Agreed, I'm curious about how well it fits.
I got an EATPM 2 years ago that was just a little to big. Pain in the ass to get in and out. Only trim i could put on was the bottom lift channel.

Quoted from Coyote:

"trim"?
If you're meaning the plastic parts on the original glass that hold the translight in and the liftbar? Or are you meaning something else?

Yes, we are both referring to the 4 piece plastic trim.

Quoted from pinballinreno:

If its actual glass and not a translite, you dont need plastic trim. Only need a lift channel.

Its Glass.

The Black and White is interesting.

Hi guys could anybody tell me the wire gauge for the switch wires that plug onto j208? I think its 22 but just wanting to be sure before ordering the plug. Also the plug spacing.
Any help is appreciated.

Its considered 18-22 gauge actually.
Not sure what you mean about spacing.

Bah! Now color dmd is doing black and white and random dots. Anyone know what might be wrong ?
I pulled all the cables and reseated everything

Does the game reset and cycle like normal?
Is the game randomly resetting?

Quoted from Lhyrgoif:

I'm in the club
Cab is pretty worn and the PF got some wear but everything seem to work as it should. It's already led's, cliffy's and a rottendog fliptronics card in it. Oh, previous owner also swapped to a new clear ramp plastic
Already ordered overlays for the PF (mansion and magnets above), new apron stickers, star posts, rubbers and some other stuff. Will also add the magnet fuse kit to be on the safe side. Currently going through the whole game cleaning and polishing everything; It will be great when fixed.
I have to do something about that abomination of a coin door; the ugly metal brackets have to go but I don't want holes left so I am considering getting a brand new door.

Quoted from Lhyrgoif:

I'm guessing trying to flow some solder over the missing parts

Quoted from fiberdude120:

I would try re flowing the solder on the board first.

Quoted from pinballinreno:

This works surprisingly well

Best Advice. Flow solder over silver worn area. Works like a charm and I have done this to many times to count. Had to do it to almost every light board on a Gilligan I fixed up.

What is going on with that translite? ☹️

He needs my new one maybe.

#3045 6 days ago
Quoted from WhiskeyTango:

I did that at first and while it barely fit, You could see the shadow of frame of the display when the game is on so I went the mod route.

I bought some sort of thing board couple years back. Well, its so dim and barely visible anymore its time to modify original board as seen above.

#3056 6 days ago
Quoted from Lhyrgoif:

Its identical to the other two targets. Perhaps the metal backing on this particular target has been bent so many times the metal got fatigued. Its easy to bend that target , not much force is needed.

Maybe my experience here over time will help.
My addams has at least 27,000 plays over the years. Im only responsible for about 5000 plays. Over time the swamp and cousin it targets take a beating. Ive replaced all at least once, and several a couple more. Left and right swamp hole, they have been replaced at least twice.

I’m inclined to agree with you. To each his own.

So hard to get any decent photos of Led's in backglass's.
