    I have a 8ohm THD hotplate, the 16 db setting has a dial setting of 0db to 16 db, it works when you turn it all the way to the right to 16db setting, but when you try to dial it back, to 8db , the sound stops, and scratchiness appears. Is this pot, able to be changed out, or will some deoxit fix it up??
    PS: all the other settings work great, just the scratchy 16db knob is giving me problems.

    How do you take off the covering of the THD hotplate? I took off the 2 screws on each side, but could not separate the inner from the outer part of the hotplate??

    Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.

    Thanks for checking out my thread.

    Have a great day, :)
