We have the goal flex air hockey table by DMI. the puck does not slide well on it. There doesn't seem to be alot of air coming out of the holes. Actually if you look at the fans underneath the air flow coming out towards the floor is pretty strong.
We made a fixture that allows us to clean the table top. We took a piece of wood larger than the fan opening, drilled a hole in it, and installed an air fitting for use with our home air compressor. WIth the fans removed, we run the compressor and hold the fixture against the bottom of the table. That forces all that air to exit out the table surface. To concentrate the flow over problem areas we cover sections of the table during the process. Also, you may need new pucks too if they are old and worn.

There may not be enough air blowing across the table. Try cleaning the filter/s at the air intake first. If that doesn't work, the fan/s may be slipping, or the electric motor/s may be in need of servicing/rewinding.
amazon is your solution. click here Amazon com Harvard Air hockey and chose your part. If you can't find it, feel free to contact any vendor, and they will provide to you I hope.
enjoy and best of luck
the problem that you are facing now is that you have made the holes to big for the fan to be able to distribut the air evenly so in turn you will need to get a bigger fan to compinsate for the larger holes, one of the things that we did to get the puck to slide alot better was to apply car polish to the table and the puck, let it dry then shine it like you would to your own car, i hope this helps
This table uses low voltages for the scoring lever. I agree with fixer1950. Check / disassemble the goal / scoring assembly, and look for the scoring lever. sometimes just 2 metal plates. should see where it's touching the scoring strip and you can test it by moving it with your finger / pen / other device.
Try adjusting it further away, and test again with a puck to ensure proper operation..
The customer service is somewhat oblivious to their inventory and products they sell. But, if your table is not pushing the puck, call and order a new fan (easy swap out). Also, you may use a small pin and poke each air-hole as dust accumulates and clogs system (do not use a wax or polish, only damp soft cloth)
The control box is the interface to power scoreboard.(kids pushed the transformer cord in too hard and separated the circuitry panel inside CB). I am in process of replacing mine, model number 34090, part number 34090HG08, $5.00+ SH
There are comparable control box modules for similar turbo hockey games, Atomizer, which uses a similar control box that you can swap circuitry out to your old box. (Very simple, even a cave man can do it..hah). The key is the ability to put control box back together once you disassemble inerts. (The "flip" mechanism is so shoddy it never goes back together right)
Good luck with Sportcraft and their disposable $500-600.00 air hockey tables which have a lifespan of parts of less than 5 yrs!
