Having a problem where the ball will exit the wire form to the right opening and landing on the sling plastic . I've tired to reposition where the wireform mounts but it hasn't helped. Anyone?

Only thing I could think of: maybe the ball is hitting the metal flap on the left side and bouncing out the right? I would pull the glass and hold a ball there to see.

I’m frustrated. I can’t for the life of me figure out why Rudy’s jaw will not move. I have tested the motor, checked the gears, checked for shorts in the wires, fuse f116, j126, and checked the high power driver board. The driver board does have a transistor that tests like it’s shorted at Q5, but when I replaced it with a different tip107 it reads the same. I’m thinking this is where the problem lies but am very limited in my knowledge to know better. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had an issue with Rudy’s jaw and it turned out it was the motor itself. Motor would work fine in test mode but under stress of game play it worked intermittently. Is this similar to your issue? Or does it not work at all? I messed around with driver board, gear crank, everything, but once I replaced motor I was good.

Good advice here. I would add- use the slow motion video feature on your phone and watch why the ball is bouncing out. I had issues with the right plunger lane after my pf swap and I only was able to trouble shoot by watching the ball plunge in slo mo.

I would trim the plastic protector it looks like you have on there.

On mine, I have the blue rubber flush with the right hand side and the ball trajectory from the wireform hits dead-nuts in the middle. Yours looks like it is is flush against the left. Maybe try repositioning?

I used the slow motion video as Elicash suggested and turns out you were correct! I slightly tweeked it and all is good. Rudy and I thank everyone who
Contributed !

Fixed it. Had to replace the high current driver board. I thought I checked everything on it but couldn’t find anything wrong. Someone had worked on the board previously so who knows what could have been done to it. I also ordered the motor too, not knowing for sure if it was behaving like elicash’s. The motor wires were soldered incorrectly too, since everything was backwards so it seems like the mouth was a problem for a while.

I will be doing a complete restoration in a few weeks so right now I’m calling it “Fugly Funhouse” until I can get the time and funds to get started. If anyone has any input or restoration tips specific to this pin I would greatly appreciate it.

Does Funhouse utilize the real time clock in the game? I have a battery holder that is giving me troubles and am thinking of putting a NVRam in it. I know some games like TZ and DH use the clock in game but I have never noticed anything with FH. There isn’t any secret midnight madness or anything like that?

#1461 9 days ago

No, it doesn't use the RTC.

#1462 9 days ago

I didn't think Rudy could get any more creepy until a few minutes ago.

Quoted from CLEllison:

That scoop does break eventually - man made bound to fail. Mine did let go. It's not an overly expensive part and if it's dented up like you say it is just buy a new one. It'll last you the length of your ownership and then some. For loose screw holes, a quick fix is to just break off a toothpick flush with the hole and thread the screw back in. Just snug it up and not manhandle it. A less quicker fix is to glue the toothpick and when dry break it off flush and then screw it back in

Sometimes golf tees work better for larger holes too

Some before and after pics of the backbox restore over the weekend. Still needs a new translight but otherwise it’s good to go.

Hello all you crazy Funhouse owners! I recently designed, printed and hand-painted some switch covers for Diner that are very popular. A friend suggested they would look great on the Funhouse step ramp. Well they do and they fit just great. I am selling a set of 3 for $30 + shipping. I will deliver to TPF for free. Shoot me a message if you're interested.

That's actually pretty funny!
Can you make them the the factory orange color?

Maybe, I'd have to color match the ones from Diner. I went with red on those. The Funhouse blue was an easy match.

For those who were looking for a replacement eyeball crank, I've started this project:
