I had the same issue... Sent to factory, took three weeks, and works now... I had them replace all 4 while they were in there.

The knob you spin to adjust the power output does not change the K-3
power output.  You can spin the knob and the power output does not
show as changed. It can take many minutes to adjust the power output
In a jerky way so I can drop power to have the Amp on.   Is there a
way to tighten the knob so it steps up or down smoothly?  It
basically spins freely now?
