The switches in EMs do get dirt in the contacts periodically. Sounds like that is what happened here.

Dirty contacts in several switches. If it it starts acting strange again, adjust and clean as needed. It's not a bad idea to go through every relay and make sure they are in spec.

Yes, I agree with your ideology. However, I continue to run across EMs that are adjusted and look ok, but the contacts are just plain covered in crud. Like I have said before, to own an EM is to work on it as well. Once it is adjusted and cleaned up, as far as the contacts are concerned, it should last for years without further attention.

If you want your game to go up in flames, then contact cleaner will help.

This is a great resource:
