My guess is it broke. It also sounds like you would benefit from doing the

For future reference, Echoplex repair services are offered by a company 
called British Audio Services, http://www.britishaudioservice.com. I 
believe that is where you will find Shane Radtke, who is an expert on 
repairing them.

You can also contact Gibson at service@gibson.com
