I have had this problem recently come up that the lower jet bumpers, the spinning disks and the top fan do not work anymore. Has anyone seem this problem before that can point me into the right direction for resolution? I have checked fuses and I do not see any that have blown. I appreciate the help!

Fuses - pull and check with a meter.

Would you mind being more specific as to what fuses to check?

Your manual can help you. If you don't have one, you can download one here :


Only take ten minutes to check every fuse on the boards in the head.

Ok, now that I had the time to sit down and really look at this. Turns out the manual (Pg 96) is wrong regarding Sol 9, 10, 11, 15 and 16, 24, and 27. Which is the top fan, play-field spin disks, a couple of relays\lights, and the three lower jet bumpers. The manual says the 2.5 amp fuse at the F3 slot on the auxiliary power board controls these circuits. Turns out the F1 slot on the auxiliary power board which is a 5 amp fuse actually controls this circuit. Just an FYI in case anyone that owns this machine and runs into this problem. This issue has been resolved.
