I have been having issues with the ball getting stuck lately on the left top of the Winkie Guard (during multiball).
The coil energizes to reset the drop (up) but the ball gets stuck between the clear plastic shield and the left top of the Winkie Guard
After the other balls drain, the ball search finally releases the stuck ball. So this coil may be energized for a few minutes or more.
This has happened a few times before.
Well tonight I smelled something burning and shut off the game.
The next day, went to play and the Winkie drop would not drop when struck.
The coil sleeve had melted inside the coil. The metal plunger was bound inside of that melted sleeve.
The coil was pretty much toast too.
So once I get this new coil and sleeve (and possibly a new FET), anyone else every have this issue and
how they resolved it?
