Hey Everyone,

I pressed the start button after a two person game. The player two score reel reset down to zero. The player 1 score real stopped at 8,000. The score motor is stuck turning and the game over, first ball and tilt hold relays are all in the on position when the motor is turning. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks Pinsiders,

Dan

What happens if you manually set all score reels to zero and press the start button?

I would cut your losses and sell it to me. JK (kinda) I would start with looking at the score reels contacts/switches. Make sure they all are clean and open/close when activated. Got the schematics?

The first thing I would suspect is a misadjusted score reel switch on P1 thousands unit. You have schematics?

Sounds like the score reel is stuck, may have a weak spring or something. Try manually incriminating it to zero and see what happens.

Don’t let the game cycle too long like that, if the score reel is stuck and the solenoid keeps trying to fire it will burn up VERY quickly.

No way. Probably my favorite EM. It’s actually my Dads. He has two really good EMs Jungle queen and cow poke. I’m going to clean up that thousands score reel and see what happens.

Hey there! Got a moment?
