I posted this in the Metallica thread, but no luck with any help. So I'am asking the general kind folk here. Its a metallica premium, and the left spinner rejects shots in every game played. The spinner a rest, does not sit vertically straight up and down, it appears to be top heavy, because the bottom is lifted up some, enough that when the ball comes it hits slight under, and a "clunk" noise is heard and ball rolls down to the flippers. Spinner spins freely, and I don't know what adjustment to make so it sits vertically straight up and down at rest. Anyone guide me in fixing this issue? Thanks in advance. Jeff

Grab the spinner and flex it downward just a bit. Also flex it toward the front of the machine just a bit. That's how I straighten spinners on older games, not sure how durable Stern spinners are...don't break it!

You could try bending the switch contact to put more tension on it and keep it vertical when at rest.
