Started working on this Star Pool a few nights ago. A couple issues going on I can't get figured out. When the ball drains the score motor begins to turn and turns multiple times before it will finally eject the ball into the shooter lane. It doesn't do it every time and sometimes it will turn more than other times to reset. At times, it will eject the ball perfectly. It appears to be getting worse for some reason.
I have checked and cleaned the outhole relay multiple times. While this resetting issues is happening the match unit in the back cabinet continues to run as well.

Not sure if this problem is related to my other current post or not.....

Any ideas???? Thanks.

There's a score motor switch associated with this action. You need to find that switch and make sure it is clean and properly adjusted.

Erratic function like this is a sign the switch is out of adjustment.

To follow up, I have adjusted the spring tension on the advance unit.....seems to be much better. The springs were really shorten putting a lot of tension on the unit. It may go through this process once every couple games when it may try to reset a couple times rather than almost every time. Not nearly as bad as it was. Maybe a bit more adjustment is needed. However, it's not consistently doing it. Almost not at all.

Wanted to follow up in case others reading the post having the same issues might benefit.
