I would appreciate any input thanks! When the ball goes up the left orbit, it sometimes gets stuck under the control gate with the edge of the gate resting on top of the ball. I have to remove the glass and poke the ball back down the orbit. The gate is not stuck shut. This seems to happen only when the ball speed is relatively slow and does not have enough momentum to go through the gate.

I try manually tosses the ball up the left orbit to test and find if the ball does not quite reach the gate or barely hits it, then it rolls back down the left orbit. If I toss is harder then it will hit the gate and pushes through it (this is the most frequent results during the game). However, if i just toss with just the right amount of force, I can get the ball to just hit the gate, pushes it up some and rest under the edge of the gate.

Is this normal? any ideas?

Thanks!

Take the gate off and bend the metal gate to give it more clearance. I had to do the same thing on mine.
