A shutter button issue on a Pentax ME Super

I sell older film cameras and lenses on eBay. I know my way around old Pentaxes, but I have an issue going with on recently sold.

The buyer is having a shutter button issue. I have suggested warming it to 140 degrees in the oven to loosen old oil. Do you folks have other suggestions? I am also prepared to ship him a replacement or refund.

Received the camera on Thursday. After winding and pressing shutter button, shutter button did not return to ready position. Shutter fired and mirror returned to correct position. Shutter button did not release in any mode (locked, auto, manual, etc.).
