Over-applying 100% DeoxIT® to Volume Pot
I accidentally 'overdosed' a volume pot on an old stereo amp with 100% DeoxIT ® from a 2cc squeeze tube. After powering it back up, I no longer get normal volume. It is VERY faint in the background even when fully turned up.
I can see a residue of the red DeoxIT® swimming around within the pot. What can I do?
We recommend the following:
Move the volume control knob back and forth, perhaps 50 times.
Spray 99% pure Alcohol or DeoxIT® D5 Spray into the pot to flush the surface contaminants raised by the 100% DeoxIT® liquid.
Re-apply ONE DROP of the lDeoxIT® 100% iquid.
Move the volume control knob back and forth, perhaps 10-15 times to distribute DeoxIT ® solution.
In the future, please follow the recommendations for use on the package, and you should have no further problems. Good luck!
