Marc - very interesting. I just sent an e-mail to Flutot's as they have a wait list. But maybe they won't be able to fix it. I didn't say which one it was, I'll send them a follow up e-mail.
But if no parts are available, that makes me all the more curious to open it up - nothing to lose then.
Funny it's one of the oldest models, it look like it came out of the factory yesterday, it's in wonderful condition (except that it only works at one speed plus bulb).
