That is a baby boom-box, correct? Getting into it for service will be a PITA. Getting it back together after servicing will be an even bigger PITA.

a) The Tuner section keeps cutting out?
b) The CD section keeps cutting out?
c) Both keep cutting out?

If it is both, yes, likely the XBS pot.  Pick a place where it is holding, leave it there, adjust the volume as needed. These things are not exactly high-fidelity - be happy that it plays at all.

Good luck with it!

If you can get a nozzle to the pot, spray some CRC 2-26 in there. Excellent stuff, though not cheap.

"XBS"? (I keep being told I should be searching for "CBS" as if I were
dyslexic!)

Search for the part-number of the device - you will see that right on top next to the volume control. I expect that it adds 'boom' to the box.
