    WD40........not to be used in electronic repairs....DO NOT clean controls or switches with this product....3 in 1 oil is good to use...the rest, I have never heard of before.....for cleaning electronic contacts, connectors and pots, etc I use great.....

    I use silicone oil all the time, but one must take care to avoid any that includes acetone as that attacks many plastics. I avoid carbon based oils as they also attack plastics over time.

    A very good presentation! I have given little thought about the chemicals I use. This helps me think about them more.
    Oddly enough, the picture showing .0047uf capacitors is timed just right. I have on my bench a Jesco SP-28W wit that capacitor. It gets hot, but nothing else. I replaced it with no success. There is a thermistor next to it. I see no burnt or swollen parts. Sometimes when I check the voltage to the big yellow capacitor it will light. Any ideas?

    Thanks Humberto. I wouldn't use WD-40 in electronics because it becomes sticky and attracts dirt and stuff.
    I use the Radio Shack Control/Contact cleaner & lubricant. It works very good.
