Default D Control replacement faders (or repair?)

So I have some faders failing on my DCONTROL. I suspect the little motors in them are starting to fail as they are getting tight. However perhaps theres lubrication or something else i can do to free them up. Theres no spill or dirt obvious - so I doubt thats the issue. Bottom line is that i dont want to pay $250 a pop to replace them I seem to recall thats what i paid for the first failing fader replacement. Is there a 3rd party supplier or repairer out there? Or is AVID my only choice?

If you experience mechanical problem you can try to buy similar non touch sensitive faders and replace just mechanical part. They are way cheaper.

If you can find the right part your going to be paying about the same money for a single fader.
P&Gs are not cheap parts.

Thanks for the advice gents. As it turns out a little liquid silicone on the track has revived the faders to full functionality. I figured I had nothing to lose by trying - and this seems to have sorted it. I will post back about how it goes in a few months (if I remember!) so others who search the question have this reference.

Hi there,
I've replaced 2 faders on my D-Control so far, and have another one sticking.
It would be great if some silicone lube would free it up.....how did you apply it to the track? Just with a swab?
You still have to remove it from the fader bank, right? Or no?

I removed the fader and sprayed a small around on the the plastic and metal track below. You may be able to do it in place - I had already removed them before I decided to try. Good luck. Mine are now working great.
