Mine do the same. You're losing half the pickup when you flip that switch! I find it easier to make the Mutron "work" if I go to full humbucker mode- it sends a stronger signal to the effect to help it open up.
You end up exercising your volume pot more in order to maintain the same volume if you switch between coil tapped and full humbucker a lot. But in most cases that's not something you would do mid-song.
