The mute switch on my 1500SE has finally given up on me. I've tried repairing this but without success. I don't wish to purchase a complete new assembly so I just wondered if anyone had replaced theirs for something else more suitable?

Chris,
If you just jumper or splice the two wires together you will have normal sound. Can you live without the mute? :)

Right Guys. Thank you for all your replies. It has been sticking on for some time and of course the channels would not tune either then. Well they don't on my machine. Spraying copiously with switch cleaner doesn't really work, unless you're really lucky, has it cannot get into the switch itself very well.

Anyway, I have de-soldered it, striped it down again and was faced with several very small components.
I just couldn't work out how it all went back together and how it worked. I was going to join the two wires together but, has I do use this function quite regularly, I just thought I may have been easier to install another miniature push-button on-off switch? Hence my question.

I was getting really peed off yesterday but. after a good nights sleep I had another go this morning and, after some swearing it all went back together. I have coated all the inside with some Vaseline petroleum jelly and it seems to be working fine now. I'll just have to see what happens when I re-install this?

ALL GOOD GUYS. THANKS

:laugh::praying:

Doesn't Vaseline dry out pretty quickly?

I'd use dielectric grease. It's made for that environment.
Dielectric grease is a much better choice as Vaseline melts at about 100 degrees F. That is why some use it for transmission assembly. As soon as the trans gets warm the Vaseline is gone.
