The N relay on my Gold Strike stays energized all the time. The 10s score reel does also. Checked and disconnected all 9 10 point switches and N relay stays energized. Attached is schematic. Thanks

I count ten 10-point switches.

Also check that the EOS switch on the 10-point reel is opening.

A good suspect can be the switch behind the drop targets.

Per the schematic, none of those feed the N relay though.

Had this same issue on a Strato Flight and it turned out to be a switch stuck closed under a plastic on the playfield.

Disconnect the playfield altogether and see what happens.

Figured it out. The 10 point switch behind large drop bank had the thick metal blade touching the wrong side. Just overlooked it. Thanks

oh yeah, not the drop target switches, but the switches sitting behind them that are exposed when the targets are down! Good call.
