    Certainly not reversed. Claw is currently acting as it should apart from the twitch on powerup

    Back to the same issue, Claw moves the wrong way on first start up when the machine is cold. I physically move it back into range, play a game, turn off the machine and then back on. Claw is then fine
    I wait an hour and turn it back on and again the Claw moves the wrong way
    Does anyone have any solution?

    When it hits the side of the cabinet, what happens if you loosen the claw using the grub screw at the rear, move it into range, then tighten the grub screw again?

    Nope that didnít work, it just went left again and hit the side of the cabinet. If that wasnít there I think itíd go around in circles.

    Sounds mechanical
    It should not be able to rotate past it’s limits unless something is loose
    I don’t know the machine intimately but I suspect it works similar to a sttng cannon???
    Can you physically move it with your hand with the power off?

    That doesn't sound right
    Try and work out where is is moving from, there must be something loose
