    Elite Receiver owners, has this ever happen to you?

    My volume knob gets stuck every now and then when using the remote. When it does it, I'll move it manually and it seems to be fine for awhile. Is this the begining of a bigger problem to come?

    Hi, John-
    I had a similar problem with a Yamaha, but it was with the input selector dial.My son. who's a tech said it was probably dirty and needed cleaning.I still haven't got around to cleaning it. I only use it for music now. But I did notice a difference when I changed the remote batteries.It didn't seem to stick as much. Don't know if this is any help or not.
    Regards,
    George

      Thanks for the info George! The knob is motorized I believe not electric so, I'm not sure if a dirty contact is applicable. But you maybe right. Also, I have only had it for just about a year. I would hope that dirt has not become an issue this soon. I will try the battery change.

      Again thanks.

        Sounds like either motor going bad, or it's fighting resistance of some kind. Could be a slightly bent shaft, dirt and grime, or yes, operator error, lol. (jk). You might try removing the set screw if it has one, and sliding knob off. Clean area and replace. Perhaps some electronics lubricant as long as it's not a danger to get inside the component. That's my best advice.

          Thanks Lex. Of course, since posting this thread it has not shown it's ugly head. When it does, I'll try some of the above.
