After owning it since August, my Flex Control Knob is starting to "grab" as I spin it. It sometimes sticks enough that my finger comes out of the tuning indentation.

Is there some maintenance instructions that I need top follow? Cleaning, etc.? Or is it developing a problem?

Anyone else have this stickiness develop?

Its possible that the knob itself is not horizontally square on the shaft of the encoder. Use a small hex wrench, loosen the set screw, make sure its horizontal and then re-tighten.

No maintenance is required. I'm using one of the very first production units and its still going very strong after 3 years of heavy use!
