Broken release mechanism for model 1 classic

Has anybody had this happen? My foot release is stuck in and the speaker will not release. Ive tried for hours to get it unstuck but I think something may have broken. Im very professional with my gear and do not abuse in any way- If anybody has a way to get it out let me know, I cant go carrying it like this, as its cumbersome and yea even would be embarrasing carrying it into a gig like this. I did further searching and see at least one other person had this happen. Any ideas?

Re: Broken release mechanism for model 1 classic

Yes, this happened to me. The release mechanism has fallen apart inside the base unit. If you are handy with a screwdriver this is an easy fix. Open the base and you will see that the nut has separated from the bolt attached to the bottom of the release pedal. Simply reassemble the parts rolling around inside. Sorry for the lack of detail, it was quite some time ago, but I do recall how obvious it was what had happened and how to reassemble it. Good luck!
