My tomcat was fine and now the to hole kickers behind the popup will not kick the balls out once they go in
One goes in hold the ball gives me another one to shoot. then I have two in the same hole. Having hard time phrasing this issue
sorry. see the two ball in that lane? It will give me a thrid ball I guess thinking they are locked. But, they are but in the wrong place.

It sounds like one of your diverters is either stuck or not working. Test all three in test mode.

Yeah, check the diverters up the top left side.

If one of those isn’t firing correctly, you end up with 2 balls in one hole (oohhh errrr) and because there’s only one switch in each hole, it’s a disaster.

Balls will kick out in ball search.

Sometimes you need to replace the coil sleeves to let the plunger move freely. They get gunked up with black pinball dust.
