Mr. Pinball Tip:

I had a coil meltdown one day I turned the machine on, and was not aware of the noise from a coil firing off. Since then I keep a smoke alarm inside the cabinet, to be alerted if (when) it happens next time. I guess early solid state machines can have periodic failure, when the components gets old.

See another tip about checking and 'reviving burnt coils'.
