    Started playing my Big shot and the left flipper went wonke. It lost it's power and sometimes it doesn't go all the way to the end travel. Some times it goes past it's rest stop also. If I just use the flipper without a ball hitting it, it seems to work fine, once there is a ball on it, it doesn't work so well. What do you think? Is it time to get rid of the machine now?

    i would start by checking the screws that hold the flipper shaft under the playfield

    So I found the flipper shaft is worn. It looks like I need a new one. Are these readily available? Is there a part number I need? Maybe I should get 2 of them. Thanks for the help!

    I found and bought 2 shafts. I installed them and it works fine now.
