I purchased a Space Shuttle machine about a month ago and right from the start, I was having a small issue with the left flipper. At first the problem was that when you would turn it on and start your first game, or after you had allowed it to sit for a while, the flipper would come to the top of it's arch when you pushed the button the first time and stay there. After about a minute of repeatedly pressing the button, the problem would clear and it was good to go for the rest of play.
Today the flipper was doing it much more often, even in the middle of play. It also would not react to the initial button press and would take a minute of pressing the button for it to move up to the top of its arch, where it would lock out for another minute before releasing. Now it appears it won't react at all.
Any thoughts or recommendation on what the issue might be and how I should go about correcting it?
Thanks in advance!
