    Does anyone have a tried and trusted method of deadening or totally removing the cabinet rattle noise when the shaker motor is going in a Stern machine?

    I love the shaker motor but the cabinet rattle is starting to give me the dirts.

    My ACDC Premium still vibrates/rattles with the playfield glass removed. I am not sure of it is the playfield itself vibrating on the playfield slide rails mounted on the cabinet.

    Tried the coin box, it wasn't that either. I will have a look at the speaker panel and the backglass.

    My problem is that I need someone to stick their head in the cabinet whilst I activate the shaker during gameplay or vice versa.

    Thanks for the info guys. I will definitely tighten up that rod cause the shaker itself seems noisy. The shaker in my machine did come from Pinball Life.

    I reckon there is a good chance the play field itself is vibrating pretty heavily which in turn is making things like the Canon and train rattle as well.

    Tightening the rod did the trick on my machine. The shaker itself doesn't make a sound anymore.
