My outhole switch was not registering drains. Did not register in tests either. The switch had some suspect solder connections so I pulled it out and resoldered. After that the switch started to register properly in tests. Everything seemed fine until I started a game. The switch died again before the first drain. I cant find any other wiring issues. I also reseated the appropriate plug on the board. Hopefully this is the last in a long list of problems with this BSD

Pic is pre resoldering

Any help is much appreciated

While in test levels I kept triggering the switch while wiggling wires. Finally noticed that bending one of the actual lugs on the switch would get it to fire. I bent it enough that the switch stays working. Will have to replace eventually

I always replace suspect switches , think of how much time you can save just by changing out an old switch that giving trouble . When ordering parts I always add extra items in to build my collection of parts on hand . A lot of switches , you can pull the arm off and just hook them to a new body , so it doesnt always need to be the exact switch .
