Hello I'm a new pin head with an Iron Maiden Pro. Bought in may of 2018. I play it ALOT. So far no issues but now I have a pop bumper not responding. Can someone guide me in the right direction on how to fix it. I went through Google but can't find anything spent quite a bit of time looking through the forums on pop bumper issues but can't find anything. Thank you very much in advance!

Turn off game, remove lockdown bar, glass, balls and lift playfield.

Look at wires going to the coils for the pop bumpers. Look at the one not working and see if a wire broke off. If it did, solder it back on.

If the wires are attached, look at the gap of the switch and make sure it's similar to the others.

Short of that, might be broken metal or fiber yoke that holds the plunger to the rod/ring assembly.

Your game has a switch test - see if pop bumper skirt switch registers, your game has a coil test - see if pop bumper coil fires.

One or the other needs attention.

Thank you for the quick replies!!! Checked the wires. Everything looks solid. Where can I find the switch and coil test procedure. I looked on but can't find anything. Also....can someone explain the gap. The thin bar seems pretty far away compared to the others in the machine. Can I bend it? How can it lessen or widen over time? Thanks again guys!

Game turned on. Hit the enter diagnostic button, play with the other buttons. You'll figure it out.
