Puck doesn't glide well

On my air hockey table, the pucks don't slide well. It's not much fun when someone doesn't hit the puck hard to have it get stuck in the middle or slide to a stop. Air is coming out of each of the holes, but it doesn't appear strong enough to elevate the puck.

I felt air leaking from the underside of the air chamber that distributes air to the table..so I caulked all the joints of the wood. Also, I took a drill bit that was just a tad bigger than the holes and opened each one up just a bit. That didn't help either. I've put silicone spray on the table to lubricate it some as well..which helps only a little. I wonder if the fan is just not big enough and perhaps I need to replace it?

Any suggestions?

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

I had a similar problem and thought I had removed all the screws. Then I discovered 4 more underneath some decals on the top near each goalie. Also 4 very small screws on each end near the controls. Hope this helps.

I recently bought an Amloid My First Mini Cycle for my son. I was only given on packet of assembly intructions for the fork and front wheel of the cycle. Once you put that together the instructions say...


You need to hammer the cap on. The tube with open ends fits over the cap and lets you hammer it on. To make it work, you need something to hold the other end, like a block of wood, or I found a hockey puck worked perfectly. Assemble the rear wheels, then turn the cycle on its side with the cap end of the axle down. Put it on the block of wood or the puck, and then hammer on the cap with the help of the tube. Now if you can help me get the handlebars on, I'd be eternally grateful. Problem is the spacers seem to be too big to allow the fork into the slot in the handlebars, and without them, there is nothing to screw into to hold the handlebars.

Puck dont glide


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.

Face-off air hockey instructions


There are a number of situations that would cause an official to toss a center from a face-off. Here are the majority of the reasons a center can be tossed from a face-off.


~ The center did not place his stick or skates in the designated area.


~ The team took too much time in completing the line change.


~ The center moved/jumped prior to the official dropping the puck.


~ The center refused to put his stick down or position himself properly in the allotted time.


~ One of the players not taking the face-off moved into the face-off circle prior to the drop of the puck.


There are a few other situations which can cause a center to be ejected from a face-off. If it happens twice on the same face-off, the team will be assessed a minor penalty.

Hope this helps !!

Air hockey table keeps scoring on it's own.


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..

Air flow hockey table


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.

Sportcraft Turbo Hockey table will not power up


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!
