Volume control shot

I have removed the broken pot (actually on a Superadio II) - but there are no numbers on it that my local electronics store can use as a guide for replacement. Where can I get a replacement part? Thanks winstephen

I can't find info on the parts online, however if you email as detailed of a description of what you need to: they can probably help you. They're quite good at finding parts.

I would like to order an entenna for a super RCA radio 111

Find a local store that sells a compatible antenna . Any electronics store might have it. If you can't find a local store look for an online one. Go to their website, order the merchandise and pay for it.

Volume control on GE Superadio

Although the pot is broken it may just be the wiper part & you can try measuring across the outside terminals (if broken disassemble)with an ohmmeter (DMM). If you get a reading say 10k ohms then you know what to order. The page below describes mods to the Superadio III plus a bit about spare parts when you scroll to the end........

Tivoli PAL volume problems

I posted this tip elsewhere but the FixYa site is, shall we say, challenging.<br /> After years of use my Tivoli PAL started having volume problems. The audio began popping, volume changed erratically, static, booming, almost feedback sounds.<br /> In my case, and others as well, I've gleaned, the problem was the volume potentiometer. Apparently it oxidizes over time and the poor electrical contact is the reason for the erractic audio.<br /> I'm not an electrical repair kind of guy, so this isn't pretty.<br /> The volume and frequency controllers are secured to the knobs with metal collars. I pried the collars loose and got the horizontal board off, I sprayed Stabilant 22 into the volume pot. There are other electrical contact cleaners as well.<br /> Put it all back together. Let the flud dry. Good as new.<br /> Good luck.

Solution for the stability problem

GE and RCA SR-3 production suffers from an ill-advised change in tuning potentiometer. It causes the tuning to be unstable - the radio is almost unusable due to difficulty in tuning to stations and the radio has difficulty staying on stations.

The value of the pot is a bit unusual - 300k. I have found that a 500k pot, with 470 fixed resistors across each leg (low to middle, middle to high) allows the radio to tune the entire AM and FM bands, although dial calibration is really bad. The tuning voltage high and low pots will need to be adjusted at the very least, and the whole front end will probably need re-alignment.

I have modified at least a half a dozen of these radios this way, Fry's has an appropriate pot but the shaft is aluminum and needs to be machined. The radios are as stable as early production SR-3's, and are fine DX units.

The FM section can also benefit greatly from the narrow ceramic filter modification. I can routinely use the radio for stations over 100 miles away after the modification.

the volume control needs to be cleaned. if you can carefully take the back off, the volume control may have some small openings in the housing. spray contact cleaner (or even a small amount of wd40) in it and work the control back and forth and see if that does it

Volume control

Go to the local TV service store and ask the tech if he can clean the control with some contact cleaner.

If the cleaning does not fix it, then there may be a cold solder connection under the control, or the control itself may be defective and require to be changed.

The transformer needs to be replaced. 120VAC to 15VAC. Take a look on amazon for it, here: Amazon com 15VAC transformers. Wish you best of luck.
