    Switch sparking

    Got a second hand Fuse hybrid and the thing is vaping like a champ with dual coils. Loving it, but was hearing some weird sizzling coming from the switch and have now realized (while being in a darkish room) that the switch is sparking against the switch housing. Outside of switch sparking against inside of switch hole.

    What should I do?

    Cheers,
    Mick

    Yeah I've got that part sorted. Just wondering now if there is a fix or will I just polish it up and put it on the shelf.

    Had it apart and it does have a big delrin like screw sleeve. That and everything else looks to be in good condition. Battery is also in good condition and tried another to make sure.
    From what I can tell the only place for the current to go is from the switch to the switch casing (where it's sparking). It's weird that it doesn't have a 'solid' path for the current to go. Maybe the switch or casing has really fine scratches that are making it arc?

    Try a bit of veg oil (coconut is good) or conductive grease on the contacts and see if it still arcs.

    Could also be a short in the coil areas as this will often react in the switch area.

    Just thoughts to try out.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm pretty sure the coils are all good. I redid them and got the same result. Have heard if some stuff called noalax which is an anti oxidant. Might give that a go.
    Cheers

    Can be bloody tricky! thanks for the suggestion. Will give the area a polish, clean and out this grease stuff in tonight and see how it goes. I'll get onto people if that fails. Thanks mate.
