Coil works once or twice, but then seems to bind up. It makes the very short pulse but doesn't really fire the kicker. It's a low power coil on NGG. I kind of recall similar thing on another game where a low power coil kicks ball out of a saucer back onto playfield, but I forgot what the solution was. Maybe binding??? Thanks

I'd start by cleaning it. Be sure coil sleeve isn't cracked or broken. End of plunger isn't mushroomed and binding in the coil sleeve. And at the bottom if coil stop or grommet, be sure it is there and in good shape.
