New PGM 301 help

Just got my new PGM 301 yesterday. The volume knob is very tight and doesn't have a smooth roll to it. Any suggestions how to fix this without replacing the pot?

Well, probably the easiest way to fixing it (without resorting to tools) is just to keep rolling the knob back and forth until it becomes smoother!

Congrats on the new PGM! PGMs are sweet ;P

Try some contact spray.

But if it's still really stiff it may be a bad pot. (Don't worry, pots are cheap)

The knob on mine was tight when I got it too. It's loosening up the more I use it. --Jason
