    I have a Kenwood TS-900 and everything seems to be working fine except the audio pot. I need to deOxit the pot but it's not exactly clear how to gain access to the pot in a manner that doesn't require disassembly to get at the back of the front panel.

    Any suggestions?

    Sometimes if you lay the rig on its back with the pot shaft straight up, and you remove the knob, you can trickle (not spray) some solution down the shaft and it can work its way inside the pot. Turning the shaft back and forth after the trickle application can help spread the solution inside the pot. Not a perfect solution, doesn't work all the time, but it's better to try first then dismantling circuitry to get at it.
