Hi I just recently bought a treasure chest claw machine. This is my first machine and I plan on refurbishing and putting on location. Everything is in working order except for the DBA. That's shot. The issue I am having is after every play when the claw returns home the claw will not open. When I cycle next play I have to wiggle crane around to get it to open. Could you point me in the right direction? There isn't much info out there on this machine.

Homer, try putting a rubber grommet or some sort of a washer or spacer at the base of the claw, so that the metal plate that the claw fingers screw into doesn't come in contact with the bottom of the coil cylinder. I've read that it magnetizes and causes the base of the claw to stick to the cylinder. Worth a try.
