To fix the problem, I used an external 100 and 400 ohm resistor to
simulate the direction indicating pot. This allows rotation, which is
completely disabled when the open spot is hit. Rotating back and
forth 10-15 times acorss the bad spot fixed mine, over 2 years now
without recurrence. Just be careful you don't over-rotate!
