The wires on the volume pot either need to be reflowed because the solder is not good or the pot itself is bad.

To make a capacitor discharge tool you need a 220K or larger resistor attached between an aligator clip and a metal tip. You can use a plastic tube or wood. I used a Romex house wiring 12ga piece of copper soldered to a 470K 5w old resistor I had sitting around then other end of resistor soldered to wire with aligator clip this is housed in an round plastic tube so I don’t get shocked.
