Good deal glad you got it going
Take it apart and clean it and stretch that spring about 2 or 3mm and you'll be good to go. Refer to my pics about to see the switch guts.Thanks for the info. Mine has been intermittently malfunctioning but only when trying to raise the deck. I packed the connectors with dielectric grease. I'll try taking it apart to investigate further.
I has my XT3GSX in the garden doing burn outs with the diff locked! Had alot of fun peeling out. LOL rev the throttle up wide open and punch the go pedal. LOLNot really a problem but something I had forgotten about. I've been using the 3240 all day and it has a hydro pedal shock which smooths the forward and reverse pedal action.
Jumped on the XT3 to pull my dump trailer and hit the go pedal quickly---dang thing nearly ripped my head off. Eased into the pedal slowly after that lol. No pedal shock is harsh to say the least.
Ran into the same thing today with another piece of OPE. The on/off switch died and called the manufacturer. They wanted $33 to ship to my door for that single switch and would take two weeks to get here. Found a nearly identical switch on Amazon for 5 switches for $6 and will be here Tuesday. Gee, which one should I do?The CC switch probably costs them all of $3. $42 is a gigging. Same as they do with 1 plastic bushing for $5 that costs $3 for 5 if you search out the size.
Why don't I try to fix the switch itself? Good question! The reasons I don't is that I know my limitations on working on stuff. Sure, 40 years ago, I worked on many intricate tiny electronic & mechanical assemblies, the hands were steady and had the proper tools. That is not the case today.Why don't you all try to repair the switch yourself? I've posted pics and showed what you need to do to fix the switch.
I went thru a phase where I didn't want to fix anything. I think it was my post-mechanic phase of burnout in doing it for 20 years. Now I'm back to working on my own stuff again and servicing my own vehicles. #Shrug#Now that is something I can understand Flaken.
The older I get the less I want to fix things myself, but I keep fixing them anyway because of the savings $$$$ of doing it myself. What I have done is stop fixing other people's stuff.
I understand where your coming from though.
