    Question Dirty Oil on the circuit board

    Hello!

    I have oil on many circuit boards, like in the pictures
    img-20200307-wa0000.jpgimg-20200307-wa0003.jpgimg-20200307-wa0005.jpg

    Does the oil affect the electronic boards? I cleaned some boards with distilled water and so far I have not found traces of burning from the short circuit.

    I haven't connected the lathe yet to the electric curent.

    Had anyone else oil on electronic parts like in my situation?

    Thank you!

    yes
    the cooling and filtration on those cabinets is imperfect
    some will get dirty as hell
    the oil condenses out of the air in a shop (same with your lungs )
    generally I have used an electronics rated cleaner
    the oil and dirt can attract small metallic fines ,all bad for the control
    clean it up
    you should be fine
