If you have the KAT3(A) installed, you might need to reseat it.
I've seen this in several K3s.

I'm also noticing that issue with my K3. All bands ok except for 40m. Occasionally, SWR will go extremely high only on 40m. I checked all connections and all are ok. K3 is set to correct ant port. When I switch to my 1000mp, SWR is normal. Shutting down the K3 several times seems to fix it. I've changed the coax jumper from K3 to ant/rig switch and also put the 1000mp in line replacing the K3 so it's using same feedline and switch position and 1000mp has no issues. Leads me to some thing internal to the K3.
This doesn't happen often so haven't really looked into this issue much.
