Quote from: TelePlay on September 18, 2022, 08:41:52 PMIIRC, from similar chimes, the top coil could be a solenoid that is missing the plunger or rod that is pushed up/out of the coil when energized to strike the missing chime bar.Is there a hole in the housing above and centered on the coil/solenoid for the striker to pass through?
