Troubleshooting UV777bk

I just wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on how to fix my problem.
It sounds like my output drops significantly when I turn my lower tone pot all the way up.
I also hear a lot of crackling when using the five way switch. I tried removing the strings and pick guard and hitting it from the back with contract cleaner. What do you think? Replace both?

DeoxIT D5 is an excellent contact cleaner and lubricant for switches and pots. I've used it to even clean pots on an old amp. All the pots came back, no crackle, smoothed them out and everything was nice and clear. I'm not sure what style switch is in the guitar you have, some are sealed. If it isn't sealed, that DeoxIT will probably take care of it.
