About a month ago I posted that my basement had flooded and the
SCT-1 foot control for my Foredom had been immersed. I couldn’t
figure out how to open the thing up to clean it out, so I just let it
dry out for a week or so before using it. When I tried it again, it
worked, but now the pedal switch sticks. It doesn’t have a low speed
anymore, it seems to jump straight to a medium speed. That makes the
handpiece torque and really makes it hard to control.
My husband finally figured out how to open the foot pedal case up
last weekend, and after fussing with it for a while, he informed me
that the switch is shot. I dug through the Orchid archives and
learned that these switches can be replaced. But the archives didn’t
tell HOW to replace it.
I just got a new switch during a trip to CR Hill, but they did not
have instructions, and Foredom doesn’t have anything on their site on
this topic. Maybe my clever husband can figure it out by himself, but
I’d like to have directions handy, just in case…I’d rather not have
to buy a new foot pedal just now.
Does anyone have a set of instructions on how to change the switch
in a SCT-1 Foredom foot pedal? Thanks in advance!
