My Apple IIc is what appears to be the first US model: A2S4000 with version 255 ROMs. The keyboard PCB is marked 820 0108 03 ©1983, and the keyswitches are the "cross" type as seen below, without any obvious brand markings.
Most of the keys on the keyboard are very stiff and do not depress smoothly, requiring more than usual pressure to depress and then often depressing with an uncomfortable sort of a small "crunch" after which the pressure needed to bottom out the key decreases enormously. This happens particularly when not striking a key dead centre, getting worse as one moves further from the center of the key, though it happens for many keys even when pressed dead centre. The degree of the problem varies between keys; Q is pretty smooth for both centre and edge presses, whereas W is bad even for presses dead centre. The reset has the same issue. (That's not really a surprise; it appears to use the same keyswitch as the rest of the keys.)
The caps lock key and 80/40 and keyboard switches (again, all appear to be using the same keyswitch) also don't release easily from their depressed ("on") state; they need to be wiggled as one depresses them when trying to get them to release.
What are my options for improving the feel of my keyboard? Is there some sort of cleaning (perhaps involving isopropyl alcohol or contact cleaner) or lubrication I could do that would help fix things? Or do I need to replace the switches? In the latter case, the easiest option would be to find a replacement keyboard, but those seem difficult to find and expensive. If I were going to go so far as to desolder all the switches and replace them, what switches could I use?
