The ball kick out on my Sky Jump often fails, with the ball rolling far enough down the trough to trigger the ball advance but not enough to make it to the shooter lane. The coil is original but seems ok, it fires consistently. I suspect that the ball sometimes hits the roof of the apron, thereby slowing it enough for it to fail. I examined the mechanism but there does not seem to be any way to adjust the launch angle?

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Thank you SirScott, I think that post is exactly what is going on with my SJ. Knowing what the issue is is half the battle! Now for the other half....the fix.

Problem solved! I removed the assembly, cleaned and lubed it. I could tell it made a difference, much smoother, especially at the pivot on the mounting bracket. Put it back together and voila, the ball kicks out every time, stronger than ever.

Thank you for all the helpful posts!
