if your needle and seat look dull or dirty, try carb cleaner and a cotton swab first, if it still looks grungy at all, take some regular toothpaste and a cotton swab and polish the seat and order a new needle. the toothpaste will act as a mild abrasive and polish the soft brass seat.

best of luck!
