I noticed the switch on my R4511 started acting up the other day. After I switch it on, nothing, if I play with the yellow lockout buttion a little, wiggle it, and it will kick on. However, it doesn’t have the normal slow start.

I’ve tried inserting the lock button both directions same result. It doesn’t appear to be damaged,

Anybody else seen this? Any suggestions?

My first thought would be to blow the switch out pretty thoroughly, with compressed air, and/or use some contact cleaner.

Open it up and check for a loose connection
