    i love my DOD FX25B. the only beef i have with it is the switch doesn't always work. oftentimes, if i can get it to go on/off on the first try, ill leave my foot there until i want to use it again in the hopes that it will switch easily again.


    i was considering putting everything into a new, maybe smaller case with a regular metal switch; putting a regular switch into the existing case might work too.

    what to do??

    Assuming it's like all the other B-series stuff I've seen, the switch is a PCB microswitch. If it's defective, just replace it with one from Mouser or someplace. They're cheap.

    You may just need to replace or extend the foam pad to make better contact with the existing switch.

    No need to make this hard.

    Good luck...
