Hi All,
My Surfer used to change which Add bonus rollover was lit up when the spinner spun but no longer does. I cleaned and checked the spinner contacts but that didn't help. I recently tweaked the AX relay is it possible that is the culprit or should I look elsewhere. Any advice or direction is greatly appreciated.

Does the AS relay still spin properly when the spinner spins? Does the spinner still score points?

Do you have the schematic? If not, get one.

I found the KS relay with the dried remains of a rubber band around it's spring. This appears to be the problem.
Thank you for the direction.

Thanks, I do have the schematic but I'm still learning how to read it. Thanks to zacaj I now can see on the schematic that the KS relay is the obvious starting point and is indeed the problem. Thank you for your patience with a pinball noob.

on the circuit board connected to the ks relay there is two sides , one side only controls the add bonus light , undo the two screws holding the spring take it off ,then the washer then the double sided pivots , use some circuit board cleaner give the board a good clean, then with some sand paper giver the two pivots a clean, that pivot arm give it a little bend to make sure it is making contact with board then put it back together the same way you take it off, and check it with a dmm to make sure its making contact , make sure when you put the spring arm back on that its not to tight on or the pivot arm wont move freely around

Raff thank you I will give this a go next time I am servicing it but for now its playing well.

When I was a kid my family lived in west lakes/semaphore area sea side and I have many fond memories of Bloods matches
