In my pic, underside of play field, on wheel unit closest to center drain. Tell me....What coil, why burned, where do these two wires go? Pic of your unburned unit appreciated.

Also, (unrelated ? ), my bonus won't switch left to right unless I manual operate the coil (but won't hold, goes back to left). Coil looks good.

Getting close on full op, minor+ shop complete.

Lastly, anyone have a good PDF of scorecard?

It looks like part of a bonus unit, but hard to tell from that
picture.

Mmmm, step back a bit and get a wider shot.

Wider shot. This ?stepper? unit it is attached to is at the bottom of the play field (top with the field flipped up). Appreciate the help.

The coil that is burned out is a bonus total reset coil. When it pulls in the subtract coil only needs to fire once to return the bonus unit back to zero position.

MANY Thanks. Any idea why my top center kicker hole gets stuck repeating after it launches ball. Contacts good, proper gap, smooth mechanism. Just randomly kicks the pinball then will kick a “phantom ball” repeatedly. Weird.

The relay associated with the hole is not releasing.

New to EM’s...usually sticking? Bad relay/coil? Takes a sleeve? Most common causes are mechanical/sticking in nature I am guessing?
