\015 How do I fix this - all other keys arefine....can I take the bar off andclean?\015

Answers :

You can remove the space bar to clean it, but it can be tricky to put back on. I will include a link below that explains how to replace keys, including the space bar.

First, before removing any keys, I would buy a can of compressed air (any office supply, electronics or computer store) and spray around and under the space bar to dislodge anything that might be getting in the way of it properly functioning.

Here is the link if you need to remove your space bar:

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
Yup! you can do that.. carefully... i repeat, carefully pry-upward the space bar using a hard plastic card (I.D cards are best). Clean the hinge with a brush. Press down till you hear a click to return the key back to its position.
