706 Volume Control Bad

I have a flat spot on the volume control near its lowest setting.
Cannot adjust audio there, it goes from almost nothing to a higher
level, no inbetween.  Wondering if others have this, has anyone
changed the pot, has anyone returned a unit to Icom for this problem?

IT's probably worn the rather thin carbon layer off that portion of its rotation from use - if you
can, try a control/tuner cleaner spray, if not, the faceplate SHOULD be fairly easy to disassemble
for a replacement - otherwise, a trip to Icom. Sure is nice that the faceplate comes OFF - makes
shipping a breeze! Gotta LOVE these neat rigs!
