Hi JOhn,

Cliff ALWAYS has the best advice, don't hesitate to take it, but I will
relate an experience I had with a pot in a 5400 many years ago.  Not to
confuse the issue at all, but the amplification here MAY be of some
help.  I had a pot problem, and solved it by soldering the brass rivets
that held both ends of the resistive element in the pot....may or may not
be helpful to you...
