Coil Emergency Ottawa Show

Postby Chris Silver » Thu Sep 20, 2018 4:35 pm

I need a Bally coil AQ-25-500 to bring my Silverball Mania to the Ottawa Show this weekend. I just blew it before packing up.

Can anyone spare one and bring it Friday evening? I'll give you $20 even if it's used.

I need to install it Friday night and can't be back until Sunday morning so timings critical.

Thanks in advance. Chris

Thanks Guy. You're a savior. I'll bring some top shelf parking lot rum for a sit down. :D

I am sure you already know, but indicating here for the general public with less pinball repair experience who might be reading:

Make sure you also address the reason the original coil burned.
Otherwise the replacement one will burn soon after replacement.

Cheers,

Good point. Machine gunning flipper.

Ah, it is a flipper coil with two windings, thanks for the detail.
AQ-25-500/34-4500 ?

Machine-gunning is usually caused by the small weak fine wire 'hold' coil being opened (the 34-4500 portion here).
The break of the small wire is often at one of the coil lug.

Yes. I don't believe the worlds best solder job would have kept it alive over the weekend. I have a handful from past machines I haven't thrown out thinking "someday" there'll be a cure. ;)

See you this weekend Sylvain.
