    Spring Reverb on all the time

    I have a small 5 watt Ibanez amp that has an Accutronics spring reverb. I have noticed lately that it sounds like the reverb stays on with the knob at Zero. Does anybody have any advice on what might be causing this and is it something that could be fixed easily? Thanks
