I dismantled the main unit to discover all the wiring was twisted together and insulated with sellotape which had already deteriorated. I completely re-wired the whole unit using solder and electrical tape to insulate. Still had 'crackling' and soon determined the cause as a faulty microphone insert. I renewed the insert and now have a fully functional unit. The unit itself is a lovely ... full review
So loved this vintage phone and yet with push button. I thought of the dial one but then i know that with kids nowadays, they will get whiny as time went and so opted for this one instead .... vintage with a touch in one go. :-)
