Indiana Jones Idol Not working (No 2)

Had to repair an Indy with an error saying “Idol is Bad”, although when i went into the Idol test, it worked for a bit, and then stopped. Switch the machine off and back on, and it didn’t work at all.  I lifted the playfield (while in the Idol test) and looked at the connections to the motor, which all looked good. Then had a look at the motor driver board and the inductor looked a bit suspect. When i pushed it, the idol would work. Removed the board, reflowed the solder around the leg of the component (after stripping the insulation off), and it worked perfectly.2017-05-17 16.13.40
