Liberty Bell Eject Coils (resized).jpg

#1 74 days ago

I am currently trying to fix up a Williams Liberty Bell that has the following issues.

1. The top left rollover switch locks on the ball index relay and does not score any points. Switch checks out OK.
2. None of the saucers kick out a ball when activated.
3. The start button doesn't work but the coin return button will start a game. The button worked before and quit after moving the game.

Can anyone help me figure these issues out?

Thanks!

Quoted from RetroRyan:

The Ball Index relay should lock on. It tells the game that you've scored points so the ball count will advance when you drain. How many points should the top left rollover score?

Quoted from RetroRyan:

2. None of the saucers kick out a ball when activated.

If none of the three eject holes work I'd check the two Score Motor switches that are common to all three:

I don't think the coin return button should start a game so it may be that your coin door has been modified. But since it does start a game most of the circuit (shown at https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/1977-em-liberty-bell-schematics-) is working. I'd check the wiring for the Credit Button switch against the schematic. Something probably got bumped during the move.
