Stern Stampede (EM) question. Game is not ending after either a 3 ball or 5 ball game. I have checked continuity, adjusted and cleaned the following switches:

Lock Re.

Ball Count Unit Post SW. "O" pos.

Coin Re.

A-8

A10

The Trip relay trips correcty with power applied and actuating the Lock Relay. So the coil is good and A-8 is good.

Also, there is continutiy in the Ball Count Unit between 0-6 or 0-10 depennding on 3-5 ball setting.

I have continuity from GREEN to the Game Over Re.(Trip) but it isnt acutating the trip. Thoughts? Not a strong enough connection is all I can think or Im in the wrong area altogether

Quoted from mikusm:

What's the resistance through the Ball Count Unit when the Game Over Trip relay should fire? Continuity only tells you that the meter sees a path between your probes. In this case it could be the path from the blue-orange wire, through the A-8 switch, Game Over relay coil and transformer to the other side of the Ball Count Unit. Nice to know but it doesn't really tell you anything.

There needs to be a path of about an ohm or less through the Ball Count Unit when the Game Over Trip relay should fire. Otherwise there's probably always a resistance of 10 or more ohms through the path described above.

The resistance was less than an ohm. Found the problem though. It was the power (GREEN) connection to the ball unit. I was testing at the board/connector junction and the connector was not touching the board. Thanks for responding.
