    A friend recently gave me a damn near brand new Cry Baby because its not working. I took a look, and it works fine EXCEPT the switch doesnt engage when i step on it. It works fine if I press the switch with my finger.

    Any ideas?

    Take the switch out and remove a washer so it sticks up a little bit more on the top side, or trim the rubber feet on the bottom of the treadle.

    Sounds like the foot pedal isn't making contact with the switch, or enough contact. There's a little felt pad on the underside of the pedal right above the switch.

    I figured it should be easy enough.

    Than you gentlemen.
