I know this comes up occasionally, but since I experienced the consequences of ethylene glycol on circuit boards again today...


Ethylene glycol will damage your circuit boards if it gets on them and doesn't get cleaned up quickly. We had a few drops get behind a tube socket and damage inaccessible circuit traces and feed-thru pads behind it. See this thread (and picture):

If you've had a leak perform a detailed examination and remove any residue you find.

Thanks, Mark.

As a older newbie to this group who has a few tubes to clean up I appreciate the heads up.

Excellent pics, too.

Yes, I've had that on my own Retro 808s. Mine nuked the convergence board and motherboard. Mine had violent damage, it burnt a hole into both multipin connectors, I managed to repair the convergence board but had to replace the motherboard.
