Hi All,
I'm new to pinball ownership and terminology, so please forgive me if I butcher the names for some of this stuff.
I had a Diner pinball for about a month and it had worked flawlessly until two days ago. When the ball goes in the "Today's special" cellar hole it doesn't always have enough power to kick it back out the eject hole. Sometimes it will barely make it to the top of the playfield, other times it dribbles into the plunger lane or gets trapped under the plate that covers the eject hole. Any tips would be appreciated.

Replace the coil sleeve, that will probably fix it...probably just dirty and gummed up..

Also check for other worn parts, or loose screws for the bracket..etcetc

I recently had the same problem with my Addams Family not kicking the ball out of Fester's Chair hole. The plunger that does the kick out has a plastic end that had broken off of the plunger, and would not kick out the ball. I would check this. You may be able to find/feel the part that broke off with you finger.

Hey there! Got a moment?
