While carb cleaner can clean the Mass Air Flow Sensor you should not use the Carb Cleaner for cleaning the Mass Air Flow sensor since carb cleaner contains chemicals that can and will destroy the Mass Air Flow Senor when it makes contact with it.

Use the MAF cleaner made for cleaning the Mass Air Flow Sensor to avoid any problems.
