anything I can do to help the foot control recover from the
It probably depends on the type of foot control. There are several
types in the market place. The 2 basic types are a resistance unit &
the other is an electronic unit (used on the type ‘R’ & 'TX’
If it was a resistance unit, just setting the unit out where it can
get warmed a little & dry out will probably be all that’s needed. If
it’s the electronic type, putting it where it can get warm & dry out
may also work. However, depending on the internal circuitry, (if
there is a printed circuit board that’s gotten enough dirt on it to
short out some component contacts you may have a problem.
The best thing to do with an electronic unit would be to see if it
can be taken apart & examined for contamination. If there is some
contamination visible, clean it off with an old toothbrush or
similar. Let the unit dry completely before reassembling it.
