Sorry in advance to forum members who have gone over this before.
I have a 6119 21 Jewel movement where the release button has jammed in fully depressed mode. Tried wiggling it to free it up and contemplating wiggling a cocktail stick in the crown recess. Am I wasting my time and need to strip the movement down? It's clean and works fine as a movement, so trying to avoid a strip down.
Thank you in advance for any help.
Regards, David

Happens to me all the time, seems common on them. I have normally had to pull the calenders off, but I think melt is right that you can get in between and push. Keep in mind, once they stick if you don't get them freed up/cleaned/deburred/whatever they will stick every time. And cause you no end of anger, or maybe tears. Mostly tears if I remember correctly. From last week. Sigh.

Both of my 6117a movements had this issue. One day I finally took one apart. It seems that at some point someone pushed in a bit too hard. the part that holds it bends ever so slightly. It is so minor it is nearly impossible to see. Once straightened though, I haven't had a problem.
