Cleaning LinnStrument's Silicone Touch Surface

If LinnStrument's touch surface gets dirty, it's easy to clean:

  1. For removing small amounts of dust between the pads, a small hand-held vacuum cleaner works well.
  2. For deeper cleaning between the pads, use a toothbrush with a little soapy water on it, but be careful not to let water seep into the edges under the metal plate.
  3. For the most thorough cleaning, remove the top panel and the silicone rubber sheet. Wash it with soapy water, using a toothbrush to clean between the pads. Then dry it, replace it and reassemble your LinnStrument. Here's a video showing how to remove and replace your top panel. Follow the example in this video, but also remove the rubber sheet, clean and then replace it before reassembling.

When reassembling, don't under- or over-tighten the panels screws. Here's how to achieve the correct tightness:

While pressing with one hand on the top panel near the screw, turn the screwdriver clockwise with your other hand until the screw head is level with the top panel. Then tighten an additional 1/4 turn only and no more.
