    I've had it for about a week and footswitch 1 now doesn't activate most of the time, or switches on and off fast. (I bought it from Andertons and sent a support message there, not sure if it's a better idea to put it here.)

    That product seems to be only sold in USA, shipping on aerosols is expensive so I'd be paying double. I could get Servisol or Deoxit D5 but I don't know if they'll work for it.

    EDIT: The zero residue version of MG Chemicals is available, just not the other one. I guess I'll try it because it's pretty cheap.

    The zero-residue one is the one I that worked for me (and the gent on the thread).

    I'm waiting for them to get more in stock, but in the meantime, it seems like the problem has improved by itself a bit :)

    Powering it with a 1-Spot Pro CS7. People say it can handle being powered off a single 500ma port, but I noticed my 1spot getting hot and making a high pitched sound... So I'll get a current doubler and combine a 500ma and 200ma port to be safe (the other 500ma is already being used by my Digitech Drop Tune)

    EDIT: Well, looking at the specs, the Drop Tune pedal has a requirement of 250ma... So the best way would be to power that off a 200ma, and combine 2 500ma's for the Amplifire, right?

    You should contact True Tone about this.
    The CS7 should be able to power the AmpliFire from a single port.
    Please mention the heat and the noise.
    I'd appreciate it if you'd let us know what they say.

    I've been powering my AA3 from a 500ma port in a OneSpot CS7 for a few years now. Never had an issue

    I had a similar issue with my AA6.

    Turns out the the nuts on the footswitches were loose. Tightened them up and all is well.
