    Anyone know what would be causing this behaviour with the left flipper? Right flipper works fine.
    Only when a ball hits the left flipper, this happens:



    If you flip the left, without hitting a ball, it generally resets itself to the proper position.

    Thanks for any info.

    I would think something is loose.
    Check the set screws where the flipper shaft meets the mech.

    Clean up the coil area 1st.
    Check for a loose or bad solder joint 2nd.

    This is my first thought.
