    No effect when pedal is engaged.

    I am far from being a qualified effects expert or repair engineer, but I've owned a couple of Mutron III's. I still have one that's a later gen version with the internal power supply. I sold the one that was powered by either two 9 volts or the external 3 pin supply.

    In all likelihood either the footswitch is toast or the opto-isolator is. The footswitch is the less costly fix.

    Allegedly Beigel sells NOS opto-isolator's but at a pretty significant cost.

    ^This. I had a Univox Effectmatic ('70s licensed Mu-Tron III clone) that had a weak effect output, and was buzzing and humming like crazy. Richard Lingenburg at Lsound fixed it up nice and proper, and had it sounding like vintage funk filter heaven! All for around $150+shipping both ways.
