Use a small screwdriver to gently pop the sticky keys off of the keyboard. You do not need to use excessive force, as a bit of gentle pressure should allow the key to come loose easily. If you are cleaning the entire laptop keyboard, draw a keyboard map on a piece of paper so that you know exactly where each key goes. There may be a small piece of rubber connected to each key, depending on your make of laptop, so remove these as well and place them in a small container, as they are small and easily lost.
2 Clean the exposed area under the key well with a cotton swab slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Replace the cotton swabs often as they collect residues, but be sure that they are only very slightly damp, as excess liquid can damage the keyboard. You can roll the swab against the opening of the alcohol bottle to remove excess liquid making sure that alcohol does not drip from the swab.
3 Scrub the actual keys and their rubber components with cotton swabs and alcohol, removing all traces of grease and sticky residue. Spray the keys with standard household cleaner and allow them to set for at least five minutes before rinsing them thoroughly with hot water. Put the keys on a paper towel and allow them to dry completely.
4 Set the rubber components aside and place the laptop keys bottom side up on a paper bag. Coat the keys very lightly with film lubricant and allow them to dry. Make sure that the lubricant covers all of the small guide spaces inside of each key; however, you must be careful not to use too much lubricant, as the solvent can damage the plastic.
5 Apply a small amount of solvent to the tip of a cotton swab and lubricate the exposed key space on the keyboard, again being sure to cover all of the small spaces. Allow the keyboard to dry thoroughly.

6
Replace all of the rubber components into the keyboard and then install the keys. Make sure that the wire is placed into the guide slot next to the key and apply firm yet gentle pressure until the key snaps into place. Congratulations, no sticky keys!

How do you fix a skipping typewriter?


Skipping as to spaces in typing. usually lubrication, what is called the escapment under the keyboard is usually sticking. It works like a rocker one tooth goes to what is called the star wheel, moves one space and the second tooth catches it. Usually spary that are with WD40. If it works you need to lightly spru with spay oil or silicone. could be broken teeth also on gears and what is called escapment rack, good luck.

Y Logitech keyboard K120 theletters are skipping


Sounds like you need to clean it. If you take a straw and hold the other end next to the keys that are sticking, blow a steady air under the keys, this may fix your problem, though you will have to do a good cleaning eventually. GOOD LUCK. Believe me, Iv'e been where you are, and I know it's aggravating.

STICKS on cycle, wash, etc. If manually moved


Do you mean the timer or control dial sticks. If so then it may be the timer mechanism itself.

Make sure that when you are skipping a turn on the timer that the machine is actually performing that particular task of the cycle. For example if the timer gets stuck before the drain cycle, and you manually skip forward to it, that it actually drains the water out.

If so then it is most likely a worn timer mechanism which sticks.

Engine skips


When you press the clutch the engine control computer senses the clutch is in and adjusts the idle speed, maybe the idle speed control motor is dirty and sticks, this will almost feel like a skip or miss, do you have any trouble codes?
