Finally, I am in! Had to leave the Comet and Pin*bot club to do it, but so worth it.
Quoted from mof:
Ok, I have a faulty switch, it's intermittent. I've never messed with this switch type before for a spinner. Is there anything I can do to improve performance, or do I just replace it?
If it's a microswitch, you can attempt to open and ensure everything is still in place (small lever and spring usually). I have done this successfully before and fixed a part that had come out of place (had to superglue the plastic casing back together though). But there is also good odds that you will break it trying to fix it. I would order a new one (they are cheap) and try to fix it as a learning exercise when it comes in. If you fix it, you now have a spare. If you break it, you have a new one all set to go.
