    hi all,

    got a phobya 6 channel fan controller, one of the knobs won't power on full unless i apply pressure to the knob. it does nothing when i turn it to full. the led doesn't even turn on. unless i push the thing in..


    how would you fix this?

    Without knowing the exact model i would guess the rheostat is buggered, maybe you could repair it or possibly buy a replacement rheostat once you know more about the technical details of the type of rheostat.

    Maybe it could just be a lose connection that's making contact when you push on the knob, either way it's probably best to take a look at the back of the knob to see if anything is lose and get more details.
