Default Another idea - -

I have had a problem with the other version. I spoke to mfgr. A good tech said to remove it and fill it half full of carb cleaner and shake the snot out of it and then blow out with low pressure. It has fixed mine twice so far. Might be worth a try.

I think the Spruce price must have been a mistake, but I rechecked my order history, and it was in fact $128.95. The same part number is nearly double that now though.

I do like the idea of trying to clean it, and never thought to try it. Looking inside the one that went bad appeared completely clean, but of course you can't see everything.
