Fixing an inverter remote
Our inverter remote stopped working, it is a bubble (membrane) switch with a circuit board. The switch stopped working. The product was no longer being made. Looking at the switch I noticed a ribbon wire with two electrodes going from the membrane to the circuit board. I figured the membrane switch had to be a momentary switch. The ribbon wire protruded through the circuit board. I used a simple wire to touch the two contacts and the inverter went on, touch again the inverter went off. I bought a SPST, contacts normally open, soft touch switch from radio shack for a couple bucks. I soldered a short strand of telephone wire from each of the switches contacts to the protruding ribbon wire contacts.
Drilled a hole in the remote switch faceplate and mounted the switch. One push inverter goes one, push again inverter goes off, indicator light still works. I just by passed the membrane switch and kept the necessary electronics on the circuit boards.
