MMR Castle Lock Switch Hanging Loose
« on: May 15, 2016, 04:46:46 PM »
My MMR started to not register Castle Destroyed or Ball Locks. It started out that is was occasionally then would not register any. I performed a Test 19 Castle Gate Test and it failed at Test Mode into Castle. Upon opening the play field to look at the Castle Lock Switch I found it hanging loose and the two mounting screws that go through the switch along with left side small bracket laying loose on the bottom of the cabinet. I was able to insert the screws and remount the switch into the fixed bracket but I cannot get the screws tight.  Is there suppose to be a locking bracket or nuts that fit on the right side of the fixed switch bracket?  If so I cannot find it on the bottom of the cabinet.

The metal bracket is threaded, it should tighten.

Thanks Lloyd for the quick response. The screws do screw in fully but both screws do not tighten at the end, they just spin at the end as if something is stripped, either the screws or the bracket.

Can you look at the screws and see if they are stripped ? I'd suspect them before the bracket.

Mine also kept coming lose. I ended up putting nuts on the back side to secure it to the plate. Works fine now

Do you remember what size nuts you used?
