Sticking Flipper on ST Pro
I have a sticking right flipper on my ST Pro. The right flipper stays up for a split second then falls back down. The more I use that flipper (Bunch of times in a row) the longer it sticks up. If I let it rest for say 30 sec or a minute it doesnt stick much if at all. Then a couple flips in a row on that flipper and its sticking up again.
The game is HOU and is lightly played. Not many games on it, less than 200.
When I lift up the playfield and actuate the flipper manually from underneath, it makes a squeaky noise and has a soft spongy feel towards the end of the stroke. EOS switch looks like it is operating properly (far as i can tell)
After doing some research on here it sounded like either the flipper link or the coil stop was bad. So I bought new parts and pulled everything apart.
The problem is the old parts look fine.
Here are some pics. I dont see any mushrooming or anything out of the ordinary.
The plastic link on the might have a tiny bit more play between it and the plunger than the brand new ones. Other than that I dont see any problems.
before just throwing a bunch of new parts on it to see if it fixed it, I wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas or experience with similar problems.
thanks in advance
