    Hi. After 5 minutes playing, balls stucks in the outhole. I have to wait up to 30 seconds, then all coils clicked, also the outhole coil.
    I have changed the micro switch and the coil itself, but still got the problem.
    Perhaps someone who has an idea ?
    Sorry for my bad english...

    Greetings.

    You are talking about the Aesop hole, right? Does it happen when you shoot the aesop or when you make the centre shot? If im not mistaken, there are two switches in the ball trough, one for the centre shot and one for the aesop hole.

    Sounds like you need to adjust the switch. Bend it slightly upwards towards the ball launch. If its too low it wont register even with the weight of the ball

    G-Bee: It´s the exit hole between the flipper fingers.
    amkoepfer: Ah, although the switch clicks you mean, it doesn´t register so I have to bend it up, right ?

    I was thinking it was the asop hole as well that you ment. You mean when the ball drains, the next ball wont kick out or it wont register that it drained? If so, does the switch click or no? Its possible it may still need to be bent up slightly

    Ah yeah I have the same problem sometines. When that happens I nudge the machine to the left and then it registers the ball. Not a solution, I know, but it works.

    It won't register that it drained...the ball lays on the microswitch and will not kick back to the magazine.

    Sounds like a broken wire ,look at schematics find all the switches that are on the same row and same column as the trough switch that's not working. Look under play-field for a broke off wire at one of those switches

    pintime You are my man !!! Following the wires from the switch matrix, I found a broken cable at the small target "O" at 26. Fixed it !!!
    Thanks to all who has answered to my question !
