1971 Bally 10's will not count score - sounds like a motor is stuck. Smells like it's over heating. All other points fields work and all bumpers.

Hi and welcome to Just answer.

Did you try to check the score sensor/switch? That is the problem if not scoring. Maybe the motor is continues working so it gets hot.

Where would I find the sensor switch?
The solenoid is extremely hot and seems to be stuck on. Causing a loud buzzing noise from it. Any bumper with. Value of 10 will not score. These problems are related as the happened at the same time.
