everything was working flawlessly then all of a sudden I'm having these ball feed issue.(no changes to the game)

the coil that moves the arm to let the ball by so it can sit in the up kicker to place the ball in the shooter lane is working.

However not every time the arm lifts is the ball rolling into position. the switches all move freely and nothing in the trough is obstructing the path of the ball.

also played with the apron off to make sure the arm was moving fully when issues were happening and it is no issues with the arm or coil

cleaned the coil and the entire assembly didn't fix anything.

i see some people talk about magnetized balls sticking together but this game doesn't have any magnates that I'm aware of.

anyone have a solution?

I'm trying to visualize this, and I am also not near my game. Just one quick thought: Is your game level and inclined properly?

yes it is no issues there. its like the trough isn't steep enough or something is stopping the balls

Best I can do is ask you post pics or a video, I can take a peek at mine later and see if I can help. Unless someone comes up with a better idea or helps you sooner.

Are your ball's magnetized?

Did you check all the voltages on the coils and measure the resistance to confirm coils are functional and at full power?

i think my issue is the balls are magnetized... I pulled all the balls to clean them the other day and i think balls from my space Jam ended up in my Maverick.

shortly after i did that the issue started happening

I ordered new balls hopefully this will solve the issue
