I'm not meaning electrically (although it may coincide) but what I mean is that "at rest" are the castle doors pushing the plugers down?
I just replaced the switches and springs and it seems as though somehow the effect I've produced is backwards. For some reason the doors are normally being held "back" (against the lock bar) with the plugers on the switch being open. They should be held forward for the ball to hit them and trigger the switch. If I push from behind the door I can hear the switch click closed (plunger down) as if I was hitting it from the front (how it was before I replaced the switches).
Logically, it would seem silly to have the plungers pushed down while at rest and for the ball hitting the door to open the plungers, but I could be completely wrong. However, this is how it seems to be now. I don't see any other way to put this back together, I have a picture of the switch orientation before I took them off (green plungers orientated towards the middle of the bracket).
I feel like it should be the springs holding the doors shut and the ball hitting it works against the spring to push down the plunger of the switch. The motors work against the spring to open the door when the lock bark is moved out of the way. Is that right?
