    my guess is its table drive or solenoid not releasing gap too small or a broken pin on the drive

      Spotting, or respotting? i.e. does it happen when setting a full rack for 1st ball or are pins dropping out of the fingers when respotting for 2nd ball?

        When it sets pins you say they fall over?’ Is it 1 or 2 pins? All of them? When they don’t fall over do they wobble a bit or is it a perfect spotting action?
        If pins are falling over very unlikely (whilst not impossible ) that it’s a switch, it’s more than likely going to be a mechanical issue somewhere.
