OT knob suddenly harder to turn


#1

One of my OT’s knob became suddenly harder to turn yesterday while playing. It still works just fine though, but that’s a knob I use a lot so Im wondering if it’s about to break or something.
Is there anything I can do to repair it?


#2

Contact Elektron support.
Either ask for a repair or, if you know someone that is skilled in soldering, just ask for the part to replace.

Do you have other knobs wiggling a bit ? If so, that might be good to repair them as well…

FYI I did it on my Monomachine and she feels like new !


#3

Well I’m glad you’re asking because this same knob has been wiggling a bit before going into this state. But the most surprising is that it doesn’t wiggle anymore.
I’ll contact the support then.


#4

I suspect something is broken inside the encoder that prevents the wiggling for the moment.
Doesn’t feel good, I guess :slight_smile:


#5

Is the cap touching the top of the case? If so, try pulling it up a little so that it can once again turn freely.


#6

No it doesn’t touch case. Visually it doesn’t seem to be any different from the others, it’s only when rotating it that it feels just slower.


#7

In that case what @LyingDalai said.
