Re: AC/Heater Fan speed control switch fix

Hello,
My first post! I was able to get the control switch out and somewhat de-soldered, but could not get all of the solder out from under the screw head with my cheap copper wick so couldn't get the two screws out. Any hints as to how to get this step done. Tried for an hour with the solder gun and wick before giving up. thanks,

bob

I was having the same issue as previous owners. Last weekend followed the instructions and now my fan control is working perfectly. Thanks.

Re: AC/Heater Fan speed control switch fix

Anyone who has gotten done this fix know if the dial and contacts are corroded or just dirty and perhaps loose? Not sure if I should order just contact cleaner or more of a lubricant if the connections are loose or just mildly dirty. Looking at using this:

Re: AC/Heater Fan speed control switch fix

I have not had to make this repair BUT my experience with cleaning many types of contact switches says to throughly clean the contacts, buff them shiny with steel wool or a very fine grit sand paper and ensure that the parts make good contact throughout their range of motion. But DO NOT use any lubricant. Lubricants only attract dirt, dust, etc and shorten the time between needed cleaningd.

Me too. If I have the time (trying to upgrade the audio system at the same time) I might try to snap some pics and update the thread as best I can. Figure at least I can take a pic of the important bits.

Based on your recommendation I think I am going to switch to the D-series Deox it, which is more of a cleaner than a lube. Here's the marketing blurb from the company:

"DeoxIT D-Series is a fast-acting deoxidizing solution that cleans, preserves, lubricates and improves conductivity on metal connectors and contacts. Use as a general treatment for connectors, contacts and other metal surfaces. Use on non-critical metal surfaces with severe oxidation and corrosion on the metal surface. If there is a discoloration of the metal - it is severe. Use DeoxIT to dissolve the contamination. DeoxIT will also lubricate and protect the surface. For reference, DeoxIT has approximately 20% cleaning action. Improves Conductivity Deoxidizes, Cleans & Preserves Reduces Intermittent Connections Reduces Arcing & RFI Reduces Wear & Abrasion Temperature Range, -34oC to 200oC"

Could all be for naught as I sort of expect to find the contacts is good shape. I believe the OP bent the contacts up a bit, perhaps giving it a better connection. Maybe this is all that's needed.
