The little nubs that push the handle down to engage the power switches had worn down too much. No power!

I measured out the internal dimensions of the cavity in their injection-molded handle part and whipped up this insert to get it running again.


  1. Download STL.

  2. Print off part

  3. Trim off excess plastic on printed part if it doesn't quite fit. It's a tight fit! Optionally, download the OpenSCAD file and tweak the dimensions manually for a better direct-print fit.

  4. Push insert into handle.

  5. Wash dishes!

...or don't if it turns out the electronics are too far gone. Fixing/replacing that with some Open Source Hardware is for another, future entry.
