Two ageing potentiometers had developed electrical contact noise which was impacting on the usability of the equipment in which they serve. Both potentiometers required cleaning, restoring and lubricating so they could be returned to service. Components will perform satisfactorily and continue to operate for many more years of service by paying particular attention to the lubrication of the potentiometer wipers so that wear is significantly reduced following from cleaning operations that, by their very nature, remove any existing lubrication.
