Hi guys, I've been reading threads for days now before coming to the conclusion I need to start a new thread. I read Vid's thread about flipper restoration witch was amazing but still did not find the problem.
My Stern metallica right flipper stopped moving one night during a game, machine did not turned off or showed any sign of a problem. Then the white cloud with the awfull smell came from the cabinet. Of course right flipper coil completely burn out. Golddust under it in the cabinet. Hot as hell.
I bought a new right flipper complete assembly from PBL (thank you Terry). fixed everything. changed the fuse on the right flipper, looked in the backbox to see in any fuse was not lit red. All good to go.
As soon I turned the game on ......flipper goes up and coil start over heating again.
I opened the cash door and flipper went down, as soon I close the door flipper goes back up.
I removed the flipper connectors and fuse and as soon I start a game I can select songs from the right flipper button. so signal passes but I don't want to reconnect the flipper connectors and burn another coil.
Where is my problem ?
