If so it would need rewinding by hand. As I said earlier the number of turns is critical so difficult to do without the right electronic test gear. Have a look inside and if it does look damaged I'd be happy to take a look for you for the price of the return postage.

Hi Andy,

Apologies for the late reply.

Thank you for your kind offer. I'll take the key apart tonight and see if I can spot the coil . I'll let you know.

Best wishes.
