Do you have schematics and part numbers for the G-5500?  I assume you are
talking about a large wire wound pot inside the actual rotator vs the
controller.  I was think it might be something in the controller.  I hope
this is easy to replace.  I have never had the G-5500 rotator disassembled. 
I had to send my EL rotator back to Yaesu 3 times last year.  I had some bad
experiences.  My warrantee ran out about two years ago. I have already spent
about half of what a new one cost. 
Anyway, I can pull the AZ rotator on a warm day and find the wire wound pot
that you mentioned. Did you replace the pot and the fluctuations

I have been checking the dead band settings in the Nova program.  

Thank you.
