I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe
The contacts on the volume control (potentiometer) get oxidized over time on any analog rotary volume control. With the power off, crank the volume control back and forth real fast for a minute or two, this will do the most cleaning of the contacts that you can do without access to the insides. Ultimately you'll probably need to sprary some tuner wash/tuner cleaner or other electronic parts cleaner in the know (with the electricity disconnected) and then work the knob back and forth. Tuner wash bottles are available at electronic specialty stores or radio shack and usually have a long extension tube (like what comes with WD40). You might be surprised where you can reach with the extension tube.
