This has been driving me nuts, maybe someone can help me find it. So whenever the special is awarding a free game, the credit unit coil which advances the wheel gets stuck. It does not do it on a coin drop, only when special awards a free game. I actually have two coils stuck on since the credit advance coil also pulses the knocker. I am sure I will figure it out eventually but maybe someone knows off hand what switch is set too sensitive.

What happens when you step the unit by hand?

from what I remember, 1'st time all drops are made it lights extra ball lane,

2'nd time out lane special is lit & drop special is lit.

I'd look at the "target 2 sequence relay" and score motor switch stack "3B"

I'm guessing the score motor switch 3B if both the outlane special or the 3'rd set of drops get's the solenoids to stick.

If i step the unit by hand it increments fine, same with a coin drop.

Thanks guys, i will look into that 3B switch, the target 2 sequence and do some more poking around. I wont get to it until later today. I appreciate the help.

Check score motor sw. 11A as well.

So it turned out to be way simpler than expected. I guess thats what happens when you’re tired. Turned out to be the outlane switch that collects the special. It had no insulating tubes so some leaf switches were shorting.

I fixed that issue then another pops up (isnt that always the case). I lost all of my insert lighting. Turned out to be bad solder joints at the fuse holders. This game is so contradictory. The cabinet and game in general is beautiful. The solder jobs where work was done, terrible.
