Options? (Frozen headphone knob)

Recommended Posts

What are my options for a frozen headphone knob on a Helix floor?


Was thinking of trying some Deoxit/contact cleaner first - see if I can get it to move.


Saw another thread on user repair/replacement of the pot. Hoping not to go down that road, but I guess I will if I have to. Way beyond warranty repair.


Don't really use the thing but - also don't like have unusable knobs.

The pot shaft is bent out of shape? Or there's dried beer in it? :)  DeOxIt is a good choice; D5 would be best (contains a little solvent). But if it's a bent shaft, you'll have to replace the pot.
