    Sounds like the throwing arm is pinching the target aginst the throwing plate.

    We have one at our club, sounds for sure like throwing arm is no longer straight. Replace with a new arm and rubber, should solve

    There is a light metal l-bracket that hangs down where the target drops from the turret. This is very likely bent,as this is what holds the target on the launch plate. Very easy to straighten by hand and easier to bend with an empty target box. Good luck.
