alright ive found the problem..that lil piece of metal actually fell out of the backside of the control knob..it connects the copper on the knob to the copper pieces on the individual settings keeping the circuit in tact..it has a spring that pushes against it to keep the knob and metal tab under constant pressure. The plastic housing holding the spring and metal tab has fatigued (even though it has rarely been used) and has allowed the metal piece to slip out under the spring tension..have tried everything to fix it..now i am trying to expoxy the plastic where it is cracked together hoping that may solve the problem
thanks for all the help..could use and exploded diagram view of it just to make sure im assembling it right if anyone has one ..thanks
