- Diagnose fuse blowing problem
- Likely culprit: bad solenoid on jet bumper (already disassembled - discoloured)
- Replace left flipper solenoid
- This is the cause of the left flipper sticking on the down-stroke, and the repeated blowing of at least one fuse.
- Order new solenoid
- Replace all rubber bumpers
- Order new bumpers
- Realign flippers
- They keep getting out of alignment no matter how much they are tightened. Maybe threadlocker would help?
- Descale copper contacts
- Better current flow = better power from flippers
- Ian did one in Feb 2016.
- Consider replacing with a different type of switches
- [Optional] Replace lights with LED equivalents/rewire motherboard to work with LEDs
- Rutger wants to do this pretty much immediately (as of Feb 2016).
- Frollard is not so optimistic, because the existing matrix depends on the incandescent bulbs' resistance, making LED replacement complicated and likely not at all power-saving.
