    Before I start poking around in this machine and attempting to clean something that creates more of an issue thought I would ask for advice. Got this machine about 6 months ago, starts up, plays, never got past the "8 hole". Finally got to number 9, got it in successfully but the game registered "Game Over" on me instead of allowing me to go for #10. Any ideas on why that happened and what I should be looking for. Possible a dirty sensor? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Was it on your last ball? The switch on the ninth slot is likely didn't register, if it was on your last ball it would read that as a missed hole and then do the game over. You'll want to test to find out if the switch is bad or if it's just misaligned.

    yes it was last ball, I am going to run through each hole and see if I can replicate. Misaligned would be great, hoping for "easy", haven't come across "easy" so I am due one! Thanks again

    OK just to wrap this up, it turned out that the switch was not making contact with the ball when entering the hole. slight adjustment and we are running smoothly. Thanks for the guidance! If the switch was bad, I was looking around and couldn't determine a suitable replacement. Any idea what would work to replace playfield microswitch. Figure may as well have a couple on hand. Thanks again!

    Anyone know where to get these switches you’re talking about? I have one on hold eight that doesn’t seem to be registering.
