Ditto on checking the easy stuff first.

The wiring to the slot kickout coil takes a lot of vibration.
I find that one of the wires manages to break occasionally - breaks loose from the coil lug.
Re-solder and resume play.

This problem has happened twice with my game now - broken wire at the coil.

Vid had a suggestion in another thread.

Desolder the wire from the coil lug and clean the lug.
Slide a piece of heat-shrink over the wire
Re-solder
Slide heat shrink down over lug/wire connection and shrink to spec.

If this fix does not last, I thought of splicing in a piece of wire which has finer strands. The conductor which is attached to the coil has some pretty coarse strands making up the conductor. I wonder if more points of strain relief might help (i.e. using finer wire which has more strands per conductor).

Glad you got it all fixed.
