    The beer foam on the bottom is not what I'd call the best idea ever. The plungers heat up and and the beer seal melts onto the plunger and it ends up sticking.

    Are all the chimes doing this or just one particular one?

    Quoted from presqueisle:

    Oh, and can the foam just be removed, or should something else be used underneath?

    You need to add something to cushion the plunger when it falls back down. I use a piece of hard rubber I found in a hardware store.

    I certainly didn't mean beer had been spilled on it. Beer seal is what is used under the lockdown bar to seal it against the glass. It's very spongy and it will melt onto the plunger if the plunger gets hot enough. PBR includes it in rebuild kits, and it gets tossed aside immediately by me.

    Either the plunger is gunked or you're not getting enough current to the coil, which would probably be a relay switch problem.

    Well, I was wondering when you said "in the backbox." Bally put chimes there, but I didn't think Gottlieb ever did. And changing the attachment of a chime unit to a cab wouldn't do much of anything.

    Thanks for the clarification.
