Have a Gottlieb Surf Champ and the knocker fires when the game is in replay mode but not when in extra ball mode.
Is this normal and if so, is there a way to have the knocker fire when in extra ball mode?
Thanks.

Not sure what you mean by replay or extra ball mode, but the knocker is based off of the score. It won't fire when you are awarded an extra ball.

I believe it’s normal. On my Surfer, when it is in extra ball mode it awards an extra ball when the Special is lit in the right out lane, as does the left out lane. In replay mode it will award a credit in the right out lane and the left out lane will still award an extra ball. So to answer your question, the knocker does not fire in extra ball mode. I believe that’s what you were asking. At least that’s how it functions on my Surfer.

The Knocker coil on Surf Champ is wired in parallel with the Add Replay Unit solenoid. (See schematic at 12D) So it will only ever knock when you earn a replay and not when you earn an extra ball.

Thanks for the replies and I figured that was normal operation which is a bummer.
Great game though.

any way to mod this so that the knocker fires anytime a ball is awarded?

I think you would need to install a new relay to accomplish this.
