Question about Tivoli Kloss Model One AM/FM Radio

Open Question

The volume pot and tuner pot became oxidized causing noise while adjusting. I opened the radio and applied Wurth Contact Oil to these pots. This corrected the problem but unfortunately misaligned the tuner. I've lost the bottom 1/4 of the FM Band and can faintly heat 107.1 where 89.5 should be. The metal screws on the tuner appear to be for fine adjustment. I need a clue as to how the choke alignment is to be set.

Cannot adjust volume


You possibly have a bad volume pot (potentiometer), or it is possible you are mixing narrowband and wideband radios together, and the narrowband radio is whispering to the wideband.

The volume pot is something which would be replaced during a radio repair. (Current 2014 pricing is around $85).

Best regards.

How do you fix the 7 beep on go go


Jul 26, 2012 Yup you got a code seven failure code, speed pot malfunction . What pots typically do is that they oxidise. This pot is a variable rersistor that opeates between 0 - 30k ohms. When tuning the pot it shoud ram up and down smoothly. To test for this
You may also need a VOM meter only $9

Disconnect batteries from the scooter. Simply attach the multimeter to the pots terminals, select correct ohms scale and watch the needle. Th needle when turning the pot should move gracefully up to 30k down to zero as the pot dial scooter speed increases. Failure is detected when the needle jumps around, the oxidation causes the pot to connect inteermitently. USE CRC CONTACT Cleaner to get the oxidation out of the pot. The potss are not sealed so there are little holes you can spray into. Use liberal of cleanner.

Scratchy radio volume dial


Use an electronic contact cleaner. You need to shoot it inside the pot through the openings. Then rotate many times. This will remove oxidation on the contacts inside. If you don't use a contact cleaner, turn of f the radio and rotate many times the potentiomer left-right-left-right ...When you turn it on again, you will see the scratcy sound will be reduced but it will come back eventually. The more often you rotate, the less noise it will make. This is a very common problem, nothing to worry about.

I am having problems with the volume knob. The


That is a dirty pot switch.. The volume adjusting pot gets dirty.. Two things to try..

1.) With the unit off - spinn the volume min to max many many times at a rapid pace.. This sometimes will displace the debris in the pot..

If that does not work --

2.) Get some "tuner cleaner" in a spray can.. At Radio Shack or a similar store.. Lay the radio on its back so the volume knob is facing up.. Pull the knob off carefully.. Use short controlled bursts of the spray.. A few sprays and spin the knob min to max several times and repeat..

Good luck..

Gain knob produced crackling sound


This is usually caused by oxidation in the potentiometer (fancy name for your volume control, also called a pot). The solution is to buy a small spray can of tuner cleaner, then unplug the amp and partially extract the electronics chassis from the case -- usually by removing screws in the top (but NOT usually the top handle screws), then gently sliding the chassis forward until you can easily see and reach behind your gain knob. You should see a squashed metal cylinder attached thru the faceplate to that knob -- that's the pot. It will probably have 3 wires attached -- don't worry: these never have voltages high enough to feel even when the amp is on. Either near where these wires are attached or elsewhere on that cylinder there should be one or more small holes. Using the small plastic tube that came with that spray can of tuner cleaner, spray a small amount of cleaner into the pot, then turn the gain knob from maximum to minimum and back several times. I usually do this by plugging the amp into a receptacle and moving the knob this way BEFORE using the spray, listening for the noises, then I spray it, manipulate the knob as described and hear the noise disappear. Unless you're confident about doing that, DON'T! Instead, slide the chassis back into the case and plug the amp in, then see if the noise is gone. If so, put in all the screws and you're done. If there's a noticeable improvement, but still some noise, move the knob bank and forth a few more times to see if that fixes it; if not, unplug the amp, slide the chassis out again and repeat the spraying procedure one time, then reassemble the amp and plug it in. If your problem is still not gone, you'll have to replace the pot. If you know how to solder WELL, you can order another volume pot thru a Marshall dealer or online, OR you can remove the pot and take it to a local electronics store where they can probably find an equivalent potentiometer at a lower price than the genuine Marshall part -- be sure to ask for one with "an audio taper" (a geometric chance in resistance that corresponds to how audio amplifiers control sound). Good luck, and please post your results on this website.

Volume does not work Korg Microkorg Synthesizer with vocoder


You might try to clean it. You can buy some tv tuner cleaner at radio shack. If that fails, then the pot. will have to be replaced. If you can solder and de-solder components its not hard to change out. When you open the unit up, the volume control or POT has a ohm value. Like 200, 250 ect…. It may have a K after it, that’s x 1000. Get the right size ohm value and replace it. Hope this is helpful.

Volume control inoperable


spray some tuner cleaner in the volume and rf gain pots and work them back and forth. Have you tried an external speaker to see if stock speaker is blown? Also improperly installed talk back can cause this

Pioneer djm 800. (dj mixer) when turning the master gain volume it doesnt turn the volume up or down unless you put pressure onto it.


apply some spray (lubricant contact cleaner)from radio shack-----to master gain volume and move it up and down many times.

Keys up and everything dims and does not transmit.


Moving the volume/on/off knob to make the radio work again is interesting and a good clue. On most CB's, the pot is probably soldered directly to the printed ciruit board.

It's possible that there is a bad solder joint to the power connections on the pot that turn the radio on & off. If the solder joint is bad, it can still make a connection but the connection will have added resistance in line. The on/off switch can be bad too.
Switches arc each time they are used and over time, the contacts become pitted and make poor connection.

I had a stereo receiver where the tuner lights flickered and there was electrical noise in the receiver. It turned out to be a bad on/off switch.

This resistance may be low enough not to affect the radio when in the receive mode but when you transmit and draw more current that resistance will be noticable during transmit.

The fact that you rotate or move the volume/on/off knob and the radio starts working again, tells me that there may be a bad connection in the radio.

A cheap thing you can try is spraying some electrical contact cleaner into the pot and rotate the pot back & forth several times and turn the switch on & off several times to clean it.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
