A few "don'ts" to begin
|A few "don'ts" to begin with
Don'leave your pinball machine on 24 hours a day. See Game play and Settings.
Don't use oil or WD40 on anything. (there are a few exceptions but its better dry than with too much oil) Heat causes air to circulate and dirt particles will move along with it. Oil and heat create a sludge. Very few things in your pinball machine can tolerate sludge.
Don't think you can get by without a manual. Every pinball machine came with a manual when it was new. Yours should have. See Links to information on the web for sources.
Don't think that owning a pinball machine is too much trouble. They will give you much less trouble than a car the same age does. They do require some upkeep but its an opportunity to learn something new and exciting while providing you and your family/friends with countless hours of enjoyment.
