I recently acquired a Fireball Classic that overall works great, but the spinning disc in the center of the playfield is somewhat unreliable. It will occasionally stop working within a game and/or spin very slow.
Any ideas of servicing this?
Thanks to all who posted. I basically did everything suggested. I disassembled the unit, cleaned it and oiled all of the gears and bearings. Must smoother and quieter now. I also resoldered the connection. Seems to be working great now.
Also, all of my gears are metal...no plastic.
