Hey guys,

Does anyone ever have a problem with the right orbit having the ball seemingly hit something on it's way through and never making it all the way through? This is a recent problem for me and I can't for the life of me figure out what's happening. The ball will get about 3/4 of the way in, just to about where the first pop bumper is and then it's like it hits something. It rattles and goes off into the bumpers. It doesn't do it all the time, maybe 1 out of 10 shots or so, but it's enough to be annoying as it's a new problem.

The only thing that's "changed" is a week ago I took the glass off and cleaned and waxed it for the first time. But I was exceptionally careful all around and nothing looks out of place. I have noticed the balls are going really fast now that it's all waxed up, so could it be something to do with the speed and having not-perfect shots to the orbit just not making it through because of that? That seems like it would be odd but it's the only thing I know of that changed. It could also be, obviously, coincidence that it happened after I cleaned it but I really don't see anything that it could be catching on.

I've tried to catch it when it happens but for the life of me I can't figure it out.

Quoted from smcclain65:

I just realized your issue may be different than mine. Inside that orbit by the bumpers are two gates. They do close so that the ball will drop into the bumpers. The only time that I know they are fully open is on Gamora and the sibling rivalry events. I believe the gate is down all the other times.
My issue seems to not even make it to the bumpers.

Yeah no you're having the same problem as me. Most the time for me it'll come back down the orbit, and every once in a while the momentum will take it to the left into the bumpers (or even more rarely if the ball is really flying it will make it to the top lanes). So it won't make it to the trigger thing in the orbit to register Drax but will get deflected kind of in the gap between the bottom right most bumper.

Was just trying to give that description because best I can tell that's where the issue starts is around that bumper. This isn't where the orbit stops the ball by design to drop it into the top lanes.

That's awesome. Do you mind me asking where you got it and if you happen to know how tall it is? I don't have a lot of space between the top of my machine and the ceiling but I love that topper.
