My machine had been sitting for several years not played due to the power fuse being blown. I replaced it and everything works good plus I cleaned and lubed everything. The only issue is when the ball falls into one of the spin holes, it doesn't kick the ball out or eventually does after anywhere from 45 seconds to 2 minutes. It had just started doing this before the fuse blew and I never had the chance to fix it. Any advice or knowledge on how to get the ball to kick out again when it first drops in the hole? Thanks in advance!

The other hole works ok?

Unfortunately both holes are broken... I did figure something else out. When I hit the bulls eye special target in the center, it kicks the ball out.

Sounds like;
Gummed up hole switches
Mis-adjusted hole switches
Dirty Coil sleeves on kick out mechanism
Dirty kick out mechanism
Weak kick out hole base plastics
Get these things right/ clean/adjust and then report back if the problem continues.
