Quoted from Pimp77:
If it’s a manufacturing defect they should provide the kits at cost. If you have a machine with issues, then it really SHOULD be made right by the manufacturer. It stinks having to pay another $800-$1100 because your machine had a faulty design that was recognized and fixed in later machines by JJP. It just doesn’t feel right.
I totally agree. I already replaced my faulty chipping play field because it was defective from the factory.
I had my replacement playfield professionally clear coated at my own expense before paying even more for the swap.
