    Noisy pedal fix?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    When I release my keyboard's sustain pedal it moans like a walrus because the felt wrapping that cushions it from the guide pad has become compressed. About a year ago I took what I now think was bad advice and blew a little talcum powder in there. That worked for a few months, but now the moaning is back, loud as ever.

    To replace the felt I'd have to break into the metal housing, and I don't think I can do that without making matters worse. Much worse. I'm open to suggestions.

    For what it's worth, the keyboard is a Technics Digital Ensemble, SX-PR602, no longer in production.

    Silicone Spray

    N.B. Never use a silicone lubricant on a metal to metal joint.
