Original gold bug power issue

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a gold bug m scope. It was working great for a couple of weeks then all the sudden the power switch took a crap on me. That nice click it gives when you turn the switch is gone and it just spins smoothly. 

I baught the detector from an elderly lady who has had it for a long time and hasn’t used it in a while either because of back issues. I’m just assuming my frequent use of it after it sitting for a while in who knows what type of storage condition that I may have just worn out a piece of plastic or something inside. 

Is this common? Is there a way I can fix it myself? because I am jonesing to go beeping. 

Or should I see if I can send it back to fisher?

I think the best bet is to send it in, I would call Fisher first, they have a toll free Customer Service number and see if they still are able to repair it, e.g. have a switch that will work, or they maybe able to tell you how you can possibly repair it yourself.

There is I believe a small set screw on the knob and some screws on the box-take it apart and look...you won't hurt it.

if it is simple fix it or send it in....
