CAIG CaliLube MCL is great for cleaning and lubricating switches and pots. DO NOT use on faders.
CAIG De-Oxit is used to clean metal connections like jacks and cable ends. DO NOT use on faders.
Both of these CAIG products are repackaged by HOSA and are available at Guitar Center and other musicians stores for the same price.
When I spoke to a gentleman at Soundcraft electronics he recommended Lubejob electronics cleaner and lubricant available from AVW Inc. I had better success with this product on switches and pots that MCL wasn't able to fix.
Keep in mind that these switches used on the boards are very feeble and if a squirt or two of lubricant/cleaner into them doesn't clean them then they need to be replaced.

The most trouble I have had with the 48v phantom power, the low cut, the phase reversal, and EQ 6-leg pushbutton switches. If any of these are faulty you will experience popping, static, noise, and sometime no signal at all on that channel. These all are very easily replaceable and all use the same part number. I have been replacing the 48v, phase, low cut, and eq switches on each channel and 25 switches gets me 6 channels so do the math. you may want to purchase in bulk at once if you planning on redoing all the switches. If you plan on replacing the other switches on the strips such as the PRE, Solo, Mute, and bus assignment
The 6-leg pushbutton switches come from Mouser, part number 688-SPUJ190900
