Game resets fine, ball does not kick out of trough.
I manually kick the ball out, everything plays fine, advances to next OK, still no ball kick out.
Also, after ball 5 drain game does not end.
I checked the trough switch and wiring, everything looks OK.
I went to the schematic, several relays involved, BALL RETURN, GAME OVER, BONUS SCORE, ADD PLAYER.

Any other ideas before I start?

Does either the Ball Return relay (O) or the Bonus Score relay (K) activate when this happens?

Hi Howard
K relay was moving, O relay was not.
I took the O relay out, checked all the switches and determined which switch controlled the outhole kicker.
I adjusted it and "Bingo", I'm back in business!
Thanks Howard!
