I have a klh 5100 with a broken volume knob. Klh sent me a replacement knob but it appears that part of the knob tthat slides into the volume control is missing. Is this a fixable part or is it not worth messing with. seems ashame to junk but...... Thanks for your help George Keeler
I located the remote control for the unit and it works fine. As the unit is not the primary amplifier for the home stereo system, I use the remote to control the volume. Thank you for your quick responce, and I will keep you in mind for any future needs.

Well here goes a spelling problem for me. You need to replace a component called a podentiomiter. It is the actual volume control behind the knob. I have had to replace a few of these, and pioneer seems to to more prone to these problems.
Open the receiver and locate the potentiometer for the volume. There should be small openings in which you can spray electrical contact cleaner. The spray can be found at any electronic supply store (Radio Shack). Make sure the product says no or zero residue. I use a product called "Electrosolve". After spraying, immediately rotate the pot back and forth a few times. You may need to repeat this process two or three times. You might as well hit the other controls while you're at it. If several attempts don't eliminate the problem, the pot will need to be replaced.
