Fixed. At the bottom of the coin mechanism is a thin wire that required manually pushing it down and released the stuck mechanism

The reason that the reset button wasn’t working is because the score motor power runs through the common and normally closed lugs on the cat whisker coin door switch. If the cat whisker jams downward the score motor circuit will open not allowing the score motor to run.
