overheating selonoid?

Post by Yellowghost on Sun Sep 20, 2015 10:49 pm



Was taking a look at my kickback coil and noticed this. The wires are blackened where they are soldered to the coil. The coil itself seems to be ok. Even tho it doesn't shoot the ball where it should. And the sleeve slides out nice. It this something to be alarmed about? As for the aiming.. if anybody has a gettaway..does the kickback supposed to shoot the ball into the captive hole? Almost every machine I played does this. Mine does not. It hits the supercharger post every time.
Thanks
Jeff

And can anybody tell me if this siderail could have something to do with it? I havent taken the plastic off yet but its actually squishing the rubber around that post so hard thats it appears cut. Again to anybody that has a gettaway, is this how yours is?

The coil doesn't get hot. But it doesn't get used as much as a flipper coil. When I get time I will un-solder it, clean the terminals and wires and re-solder it.

I see that black dust on all of my solenoids. It's probably just the black powder from wear and tear and you'll see it inside the coil sleeves too. Clean it out as you go; but unless it's causing sticky operation of the solenoid or a huge amount of it; don't worry about it.
