Hello I have a pro football and the right flipper is starting to go out regularly. I can still launch the ball with the right flipper button but I am unable to get the flipper to move in gameplay. Sometimes the flippper does work but most of the time it's dead. I have cleaned the coils and would like to know how to fix this!

Have you checked the leaf switch contacts? Lightly sand them to remove any corrosion and clean with rubbing alcohol. Try that to see if it works. Make sure all electrical connections are good. I'm a newbie, but these are just my thoughts. Hopefully it's something simple.

check the flipper shaft may have worked loose. look at the 2 grub screws and tighten with an allen key.

Hi Metal.
Look at the flip coil itself, chk the coils wires where they attach to the coil lugs. sometimes, the solder lets go, and the wire moves a bit.

Suggest you post a pic of the under pf right flipper mech showing it in open & closed positions. That will enable also a peep at your EOS setting.

Doesn't seem any of those work, I have cleaned everything to do with the flipper. I think someone is wrong with the wiring as there are two wires to the right flipper one for flipper movement and one for launching because it still launches every time. It might be over heating (whatever part is wrong, as it usually works for a little bit when you start playing it.
