There is a side hole on the switch threads which is ideal for squirting some WD40 using the accompanying straw-like nozzle. The hole is the perfect size for giving a few squirts of WD40 and then work the switch round and round/ up and down. This should help with a sticky switch.
I will be doing a video demo on this in future so keep an eye out on our smokejuice youtube channel.
This is one of the main switch maintenance jobs which can be carried out if/when you get a slightly sticky switch.
Hope that helps!
The button isn't sticking but I applied some lubricant anyway and that helped a bit, however the button is still a bit hard to push down (as in the spring itself is too strong). The way I hold the PV puts strain on the fingers when pushing the button.
I repositioned that small white plastic bit further down the spring and that helped relieve the force needed to push the button in.
It's not too bad now but if it's possible to lower the force even further, that would be great. But the problem is that if I move the white bit down any further, the spring will touch the battery, which I'm guessing will activate the unit indefinitely.
Perhaps shortening the spring is the solution?
It could be your spring needs replacing if the switch isn't running that smoothly, or alternatively if you want us to take a look at your switch to see if there is something else at play just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll sort you out no problem.
ok I'll see what I can do, thanks.
