Rotel 965BX sticking drawer.


Active Member
I have a Rotel 965BX which I have had from new, approx 13 years. However, the drawer is now sticking closed when the open button is pressed, it will come out with encouragement from my finger.
IDoes anyone know what might be the cause?

Could it be the microswitches operated by the drawer mechanism itself? There should be one at each end of the draw mechanism. They are made of thin copper leaves which can easily collect particles of dirt or fluff. Make absolutely certain the player is disconnected from the mains, take the lid off, have a good look around the drawer mechanism, locate the microswitches and try giving them a good blast with DeOxIt.
