Spacebar is cushioned/mushy on one side

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a K95 plat and the right side of the spacebar when fully pressed feels like there is something that cushions it at the end of the key press. Left side stabs aren't like that and end with a solid thock unlike the right side. Because of this, the spacebar rattles and doesn't feel consistent. I already lubed the stabs using dielectric grease. It might be the stabs causing the problem but what exactly is wrong with them? I did notice though that the right spacebar stab sits slighlty more loose and higher than the the one on the left. But I don't know how to fix it if it is the case.

push down hard on the side thats sticking up?

Tried that already multiple times to no avail, so much so that the stems posts of the spacebar keycap started having hairline cracks already.

It's possible that some debris got under the stabilizer stem or that the wire came lose from the stabilizer's base.

if it is the wire coming loose, how do you fix that without possibly removing the stabs altogether?

It's possible to snap it back into place, assuming it's the same style I'm used to. You could post a picture of it.
