When you say stuck, do you mean that it won't move, or that it moves but won't set?

If it won't move, try squirting some WD-40 or electrical contact cleaner in there. If it won't set, then try pushing out on the clutch and brake levers to release the cancel switches.

Let us know if either works, and if not we'll come up with a few more suggestions.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Cruis Control Issue

Hi Ken !

Appreciate your help

It doesn't move. means it doesn't let me engage to set up & accelerate, however it moves down a bit.
I will take your advise and will try to apply some W40.
I'll let u know if it's working

Wouldn't use WD 40, that is a petrolium product and attacks plastics. Try a spray white lithium grease, it is safe for plastics and is pretty weatherproof (takes a while for it to wash away)

Beg to differ, but that is the first time I have heard that WD40 is not good on plastics. Been using it for years without any problema at all, on all kinds of materials.

Don't know that it hurts plastics the way other petroleum-based products do. But just to nip the argument in the butt...



Aliphatic Petroleum Distillates
- 45-50%
Petroleum Base Oil - 15-25%
LVP Hydrocarbon Fluid - 12-18%
Carbon Dioxide - 2-3%
Non Hazardous Ingredients - <10%

See for yourself

Good stuff, that WD40. Just not as good tasting as Locktite.

Well, the engineer in my family that worked in plastics all his life says WD 40 (and all petro products) is bad for plastics. Silicone or lithum are the preferred lubricants. Also, they are non-conductive and non-flammable, so they can be used in and around electrical equipment. Also, in the aerospace industry where I work, you never use a petro product on plastics.

In other words..Naptha. not something I'd ever use on plastics.
But, use what you want. I was just offering up some free advice.

Oh, and the Deacon prefers it for his firearms as well.
