Open the game up. Physically inspect the flipper underneath. Compare with the good flipper. Several physicals things can affect a flipper.

Coil sleeves are cheap to replace
The rod in the coil should feel smooth going through the coil and sleeve. Inspect the plunger rod for abrasiveness or mushrooming. A file usual cures that.
The plastic epic connecting the plunger to the flipper wears out - the hole it links to gets bigger, looser, sloppier
The coil stop may simply be loose

Consider the vids guide to flipper rebuilds here.

Page 43 of the Whoa Nellie manual covers the flipper assemblies. You can download that from Stern if the
Pabst manual is lacking.

Where can one find the Pabst manual or the Primus manual? They are NOT on Stern's website.

No idea. But, it's the same mechanical game, so use the Whoa Nellie one. Or, contact whoever sold you the Pabst or Primus.

Pretty sure I've got the manual in my crusher. If there's anything you need me to look for in it, just let me know.

In addition. Kudos to Stern for alerting them to the issue and them immediately overnighting our customer brand new updated flipper bats. New bats from Chicago to Dallas in less than 12 hours.
Bottom line, Stern received a bad batch of bats. It can happen in any business/industry that receives parts from several manufacturers. With a small run of 100 the problem was discovered after the fact. Stern was PDQ with helping customer get back up and running.

Point being, they didn't qc these pins, at all.
