I am a totally newbie, so I just need some detailed info how to clean the front controls of my AU 7900, so I don't damage anything.
I have Deoxit and I know you spray it into the openings on the controls and turn them about a dozen times, once you take the top off the amp, just want to make sure I'm spraying it in the right places.
I read that I might have to take the faceplate off to get at the various toggle switches is that true?

It depends on if the controls and switches have cleaning access holes in them or not and IF those cleaning holes exist, if they are located on the front or back of the controls and switches. If they are sealed units (as some are), then breaking open the seals and disassembling the controls and switches, then resealing them is part of the job. RE DeOxIt, make sure that you are using the CLEANER/PROTECTANT with lubricant made specifically for potentiometers and switches, not the PROTECTANT product without lubricant for contacts.

I will check for the cleaning access holes when I open the amp. It is the CLEANER/PROTECTANT that I am using.
Thanks for your info I appreciate it.

@ddpg3...

If you are not familiar with the various DeoxIT Products...
You might want to take a look at this Thread:
