How can I repair a sticky key on a Yamaha DGX-500/300

Customer Question
How can I repair...

How can I repair a sticky key on a Yamaha DGX-500/300 Portable Grand.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your DGX-500? What have you tried so far?

At least a few years. I haven’t done anything except try to avoid the G above middle C, but that’s hard. I really like my keyboard.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

If I can open up the piano, will dusting it with air spray or WD 40 help?

Are you comfortable taking apart the piano and removing keys? It can be a complicated process and you can make it way worse if you open the piano and can't get it back together.
