Refurbished Mech Keyboard Glitched Key

Hey guys, so for my new rig I built about a month ago I bought a refurbished Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire. Everything on the keyboard seems to work great, except for the Delete key. Every time I press it, the same weird error occurs. It's easiest to tell in Chrome: I open a new tab, hit delete and the same thing happens every time: Chrome settings open up in that tab to Clear Browsing History, and the screen zooms in a little bit. If I hit delete again, the webpage doesn't change, but the screen zooms in a little more. This issue isn't specific to Chrome, that's just the easiest place to document the effects (it also happens in all other programs, like Excel, Word, games, etc). I updated iCue software and firmware, and haven't been able to find any help for an issue like mine online. I unplugged it, left it for a bit, and plugged it in again, still does it. I don't see any macros saved in iCue that would be doing it either.  Any simple fixes, or will I have to do some key replacements? I'm new to mech keyboards, so I don't know how simple repairs are, but I do have soldering experience if needed. Thanks, and let me know if more info would be helpful.

You could try dropping some rubbing alchohol into the switch to try and clean it, worst comes to worse just steal the switch from the scroll lock key and transplant it.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

What games or other software do you need to run?
