move keys not used much like margin keys index keys
to the ones that are repeating
swap them

Just gently pry a keytop off.  Lift straight up. You can then see the color of the switch top. Black or beige. If you have the black switch, you can actuate it while blowing with canned air around the stem. This apparently rearranges the dust inside the switch so the contacts work properly. I would say you have a 50% chance of fixing it that way. You can also exchange a bad switch for one that is seldom used.

It does have a repeating problem.  The key tops are white.  I don't know about the stems yet.  Is that enough information to identify which switch it needs?

There are 2 style of switches for those machines. The white ones with the beige tops and black ones with white keystems.  They do not interchange. As a rule, I found that if the customer complained of repeating or dead keys, it was the black switches.  If they has broken a key top off, it would be a beige switch model.  Look in thrift shops/consignment stores. I just saw as ES 95 for $14.00 a couple of weeks ago.

I'll have to pull the keyboard again and check.
And it is an ES 95 not as 95, sorry.

Are they square white switches with a beige top cover and white keycap prongs that are slightly slanted with 2 solderable pins on the bottom left side corners?  If so I have 4 in an unmarked bag.  I used to work on Olympias but haven't seen one in years.
