Static on amp control knobs!

I have a fender bass amp BXR one hundred and every time I touch a knob or the EQ slides the amp crackles and cuts out. Is this an easy fix or do I need serious help.

free bump day

i'm thinking the slider needs to be cleaned/lubricated

spray some contact cleaner (like Dioxit) in there and report back

^ as said above.

Also does it happen when you touch anything metal on the amp or only when you adjust the knobs?
