Greetings All - Joining the GnR club in a few hours... question: Does a list exist yet of "Things to check on/watch out for" on a new GnR?


-The upper magnet tends to overheat and trip the thermal fuse (contacting coil)
-The flippers typically could use some cooling
-Most (or all?) of the posts could use plastic washers as pooling --> chipping has been seen
-The spotlights are common failure points (sagging) (where is the failure point? pivots?)
-I've heard the center screw on the record sometimes loosens and becomes uneven....and its under a sticker
-The guitar lock screws can come out

Anyone got a list like this?

Also, what is this I hear about a $500 backup playfield/insurance?

Forgive me if I missed this in the threads - I did check before posting. ^_^ Thanks y'all.

Quoted from PinMonk:

Go to the top of the page. Click on the topic index link. Click on keypost summary to sort the list, and there's a link there to technical things to check as well as one post that summarizes a checklist for new games. That list is a little outdated because many of the PF issues have been fixed on newer machines builds since late last summer. If you're buying NIB you can probably ignore that part. If used, DO NOT ignore that PF bulletproofing stuff.

Thank you PinMonk - I really appreciate it. ^_^
