Considering that the filter pot is probably touched and moved 1'000 times more often than any other pot, and it took the filter pot a year to die, you probably will want to have or play a different synth before any of the other pots fail... :wink:
I disagree. No pot should wear out within a year no matter how many times you move it. I have gear that's 30 years old with rotary pots I've run through their full travel many thousands of times probably, and they all still work reliably. This pot is clearly a poor quality component.

Yes, Moog support and your local distributor. They will fix your synth by replacing the whole board with the filter pot.
There is no simple other way.
