K-r Problem .. ??

Have had my K-r for about a year & a half .. Recently have been experiencing what seems to be a glitch with my E-Wheel .. When turned either fast or slow .. either nothing happens or it doesn't seem to connect and some of the time I get results but very erratic at best in all functions .. I fear the worst and will need to send it in for repair .. Anyone else have this problem or is there a way I can clean it ???

Aye just get a can of electrical contact cleaner (leaves no residue), take battery out, spray a little bit into the gap around the edial, spin the wheel a few times, wait for it to dry and you're done.

There are other threads about this issue in the forum, do a quick search and you'll find em.

Same thing happened to my K-x; I just sprayed a bit of contact cleaner in around the e-dial and it was all working again.
