I have recently bought a Fireball II game in a good shape.
Unfortunately the Fireball bonus magnet does not work at all.
I am wondering what should i check.
As far as i know the magnet should be controlled by a relay and from the internal factory test should be running at step #16 (Fireball relay - Fireball enable unit)
I am just start to learn the game rules but i think the magnet must be activeted if the ball goes down right ?
I will check today the resistance of the magnet may the magnet itself is bad.
Is the unit contolled by the solenoid driver board?
Please advice me!

Thanks in advance!

The magnet should be activated when a ball drains or the ball goes into the Odin or Wotan Saucer when the yellow arrow is lit unless the bonus is turned off on the mpu settings. Check the gap under the magnet on the switch and that it is wired correctly. The relay for the magnet is located in the upper left corner under the playfield by the upper flipper. Of course check the wiring there as well.

Thank you!
There was a contact problem only and wrongly adjusted switch not it works fine.
