Just got myself a RIBON in pretty good shape, but the left flipper have been staying up stuck at random when I press on the button. I have never seen that before?

So - next time it sticks turn the game off . Still stuck? If yes - the flipper shaft is to tight at the bushing ,should have some play up and down . Try that first .

Don't forget to check the switch at the button itself. I've seen it stick (or be misadjusted) many times.

That's what I was thinking. RBION uses a double stacked switch, so I would lift the PF and hit the buttonand visually see what's happening. If it gets stuck on, seperate the switch and see if that stops it...then you pretty much know you need some adjustment there.

I'm having this issue with my EATPM. The flipper stays up if I flip real fast,and the right flipper will release it when flipping.
I found one of the screws holding down the bushing for flipper shaft is missing. I am gonna put a new one today to see if that solves the problem. If that doesn't work I will try Tenacious T's suggestion. Seems to be a mechanical issue as when I start lifting the table when it's stuck,the flipper releases.

shaft and cranking distance seems std, same as the other side. I however saw that the Switch actuator assembly broke, there is now nothing opening the EOS switch so I am assume that should be it?

Well that's not good! Test it out, hold the EOS open and hit da button.
