    Looking for any advice on fixing a Stern Playboy - the tease window in the back left corner no longer comes down when the bumpers are activated.

    Welcome any help!

    Go into the test menu and physical move the metal rod that the tease motor rides on when the motor is running. Mine was inconsistent(working like 50%)but after applying pressure to the metal rod in a certain direction I noticed that it would work right away. So I slightly bent the rod using a screw driver and it works perfectly now.

    I could hear the motor running even when my tease window wouldnt drop. If during the motor test you dont hear it running; bending the metal rod will probably not help any and you probably need a replacement motor. As always check your voltages prior to ordering parts so you're not wasting money and chasing your tail.
