Hey all! Anyone know where I can find the switches for ‘Goalie is Right’ and Goalies is Left? I think they’re switches 43 and 44. I can find the other ones around the goalie but not that one.

Game days it’s having an issue with these and the goalie doesn’t go side to side as much as it used to.

Edit: why is it that as soon as I ask I always find it, haha. Turns out these switches are on the underside of the playfield at the end of the goalie rotating mechanism. One of my wires had popped off needing to be reattached.

Really nice of you to make this available.

Would you have any issues if someone in North America made these for others for a small fee plus shipping?

Not all of us have access to the necessary equipment.

I plan on sending JustAnotherRat a little '$omething-$omething' for his work.

I would love to buy these if you (or someone) would be willing to make them here in US since I don't have a machine or friend with the machine.

I too am willing to buy them them if they were available and JustAnotherRat gave his blessing.

I am in Canada but these are small and flat so shipping should be modest.

Quoted from kdoggity:

Hi All,
I’m still struggling with my Goal Popper coil not activating, in live play or test mode. However, when I test it with my multimeter, I get a reading of 3.8 ohms. I’m new to this, but have read that is a good reading. That said, all other coils on the machine are reading much higher than that (all over 10). Is the goal popper coil bad, or should I investigate elsewhere?

Any thoughts on this, WCS94 community?

Have you followed the wiring from the coil to ensure it’s not broken somewhere?

Basic coil troubleshooting next:
1. Is the coil getting it's +50v feed?
2. If the transistor firing?

Half way through a restoration on mine - would love to add a set of these if anyone makes them available for sale.

Yes - it looks like wires are good

This is where my inexperience comes in. I don’t know the answer to either of these, or what they mean!

You can test whether the coil itself is good and receiving power by grounding the coil lug attached to the non-banded side of the diode which will cause the coil to fire if the circuit is working properly.

Take an alligator clip wire and attach it to the ground braid in the cabinet and briefly touch the coil lug with the other end. If the coil fires it is probably good and you should suspect the driver board transistor.

Quick question before trying to learn how to do what you’re describing. . Is there a fuse specific to the goal popper?

No. There is a fuse for solenoids 1-8.

Here's a picture of a coil. The diode is the small black and grey (the banded side is the side with the grey marking) cylinder in the middle. You'll see it attaches to the two metal lugs.

The diode acts as a one way gate. It allows voltage to flow through the coil to activate it, but not then go back to driver board and blow up sensitive components.

By connecting the non-banded side of the diode to the ground braided wire you complete the circuit. Pinball coils on WPC games are always hot. They always have voltage supplied to them but nowhere for it to go. Connecting the ground gives that voltage somewhere to go and will activate the coil.

It looks like the goal popper coil is a non-diode coil. Would this change my troubleshooting direction?

#7119 19 days ago
Quoted from kdoggity:

Yes, I forgot that WPC games moved the diodes to the driver board. In this case, power is coming in on the coil lug with 2 red wires. The other side should only have 1 wire. Grounding the single wire side should cause the coil to fire.

No problem at all, in fact I'd much prefer for that to happen than for someone to make and sell them for a profit.

Thanks but nothing required. Very little work for me to create that. I have asked for enough help in this thread that the assistance covers it.

thanks frisbez for pointing him in the right direction!

Will be back in the club for the 3th time. Really miss this game and will keep it in my small collection at home.

It needs a deep cleaning and fresh plastics.
I was wondering if somebody has pictures of a Wc94 with clear starpost and clear pop bumper caps instead of the factor teal ones?

My first one had teal plastic posts and yellow rubber but to change it to other colors.

Thanks.

Hi all
Which fuse controls the diverter hold? My diverter will fire in testing but nothing happens on hold test
It was working yesterday now not

Greetings WCS94 owners

I have owned my game for about 6 months and really enjoy it

My son and I were under the hood and noticed a couple head scratchers

1 - there is a smaller hanging connector by the ball trough / flipper region that has no connector
2 - my son claims that we may have a early production game. he showed me these roll over switch holes. but with no switch’s if anyone has the switches. they are under the right ramp near the pop bumpers. I will add a image of the connector later in the day but just figured I would ask about the switch.

Does anyone know what part that is?(the bracket holding the wire ramp) part no. or where to buy it.

My WCS doesn't have that so I "need" it

Thanks

If you figure that out let me know as I checked everything I could and never found it myself.

I will !

btw, on your WCS, are the flippers strong enough to do a post pass? because I can't do that on mine and I have no idea if that's normal or not.

I can post pass on mine, I always though stronger flippers would make posts passes harder. I’ve found it difficult on newer Sterns but any older games I’ve played have been able to do it.

Game dependent as the location and angle of slings are what I believe affects passing the most.

BKSOR is easy but Mando is very difficult.

I just realised that I can post pass from the right flipper, but not the left.

The parts list has something ID’ed as “ 01-13025 Ramp Support” but I can’t find evidence of that part anywhere online. Sounds like it could be it.

That piece is welded to the ramp on mine, so likely will not be available as a separate part. It is a simple bent piece of metal that you should be able to fabricate fairly easily and JB Weld it to the wire form. I'll make a dimensional drawing and take a closer picture...
