Default A400x volum pot clean?

Another issue,
I do found the volum potentiometer has a bit of noise on the left channel. I want to clean it, but don't want to de-solider it if possible. Will this spary solvent work? http://www.jaycar.co.nz/productView...eMax=&SUBCATID=

A blend of non- CFC solvents and RF contact treatment oil. Ideal for cleaning and lubricating non- arcing contacts and mechanisms. Can be used for cleaning & lubricating all types of contacts.Safe on most plastics.

You only want to clean so use the one without the lubricant.

NA1004 from Jaycar

or T3066 from Altronics

I recently cleaned a pot on a A400X and used the first one listed.

I was thinking the cleaning solvent withour lube will clean out all the oil in the pot, so I tried the cleaner with lube. And it works. Thanks.
