On Second thought, There is some stuff called LPS-1 that will lubricate
and clean electronic parts. It works miracles on burnt and otherwise
bad potentiometers. It is hard to find but it can be had in hardware
stores and electronic supply places. Be sure to get LPS-1. I think
that LPS-2 or LPS-3 is an anti-corrosion coating. Gooie and waxy, not
what you want.
LPS-1 ??? Are you sure? I thought it was strictly a light lubricant (and
cleaner, a la WD-40; and in fact a recommended alternate to WD-40)! With
-2 and -3 being in essence heavier "grades" on the same theme
Certainly, there are various "electronic" cleaners (and lubricants) which
can work miracles on dirty/noisy pots/switches/et al.
