this is great

I have a demo man
Im currently rebuilding the flippers.
one thing I don't understand in the tutorial is that it states that the EOS should be closed in the flipper rest position.
on my machine the EOS is open in the rest position and closes on the energize position

do I have my EOS set up wrong?

#550 5 years ago

dedicated a whole day to fix this problem in a last ditch effort not to pay a repair guy come out.
still having the same problem

does anyone have a pic of this assembly and wiring?

i rebuilt the flipper again today. still same problem

I also used Jigs advice and switched the opto boards on the flipper buttons. same problem

after a few minutes of play right coil gets super hot to touch, left does not.

any ideas? this machine has been sitting dormant for 6 months now.

here is the original post :i recently installed new coils and I that all was fine until
The flippers on my demo man started to act up last night.
here is the problem when holding the right flipper in the up position the bottom left flipper won't fire.
if i hold the left flipper the right flipper fires fine.
if you hold the left flipper too long it blows the fuse.
i suspect either a EOS issue or a wiring problem, as I recently put two new coils in the bottom flippers, I did buy the proper coil for the flippers.
in the solenoid test the coils are fine except in the hold test. they do nothing
