    Bally Amigo 1974 EM machine.....I have a weak left flipper. I just replaced the EOS switch. No difference. What is next likely culprit?

    Diagnosing by swapping parts left to right is easier than thinking.

    Could it be the flipper button leaf switch? I noticed the left and right leaf switches are different. Not a lot of spark.

    Also, check the adjustment of the EOS switches. If an EOS switch opens too early, you'll have a weaker flipper solenoid...

    Fred, how will I know if it opens too soon? Its brand new.

    Should look like this when the flipper is engaged.

    For the most precise adjustments a switch adjustment tool is best.
