My auto launch coil is sticking every 4 or 5 times when testing in the menu and is staying extended. Sometimes it sticks every time and then 4 or 5 times later it will stick.
-changed the sleeve, no help.
-changed to a new replacement Stern coil and the included sleeve, no help.
-when you barely touch the rod when sticking with power on, it retracts like normal.
-when rod extends and gets stuck, I turn the main power off but rod stays extended. Slight touch and it retracts.
-There is not any power going to coil after it sticks.
-occasionally it will unstick itself and reseat.
Could the transistor drive it outward too hard causing it to mechanically stick, even though the power stops applying?
Maybe I need to polish or replace the rod? Might try a stronger return spring if I can find one. Any source for the rod or the spring?
