Hi,

I have an issue with the left kick out hole not Always kicking out the ball. Its very strange because if I manually flip the leaf switch it Always kicks out the ball but not when I shoot it with the flipper through the tube.
Then it stays in the hole.

I Think something is out of sync with the multiball function since the switches function when i press them manually.

Anyone had similar issues?

Sounds like with your finger the switch has to go below the playfield to make connection, which the ball is unable to push it that far down. You need to adjust the switch.

Hi,

No thats not the issue. It just a small depression that is needed and the ball manages that perfectly.

It is something else, something Electronic not mechanic that is causing this.

its tied into the switch under the apron that the ball goes by when its in the ready to kick out into the shooter lane position. take off the apron and make sure that switch is moving correctly if not the game doesn't know there is a ball in that position, and that out hole won't function right.

I'm having the exact same issue. So I'm to understand that a switch in the trough is affecting the ball kicking out of the saucer? But if you do trigger the playfield switch at the bottom of the ramp the ball does kick out and completes scoring.

For my super long-winded explanation click and scroll to the bottom of the page under "Notes: Exit Chamber Side Saucer Glitch"...
