Kenwood R-600 amateur radio receiver tuning problem
I recently received an older Kenwood R-600 as a gift. Problem is that when I rotate the tunihg knob, the frequency changes infrequently. Mostly it is stuck. Someone suggested that it might be rhw "main encoder". Is this cleanable? No parts seem to be available from Kenwood.

The model number you posted is for a center channel speaker which has no controls, and not knowing the exact model number it's difficult to be specific.
Some Kenwood KDC models allow you to select one of 3 "tuning modes", 1) AUTO1 - Automatic search for stations; 2) AUTO2 - Search Preset stations; 3) MANUAL - Normal manual tuning control. If your Kenwood is one of these models, you need to set the tuning mode to MANUAL. For Kenwood Excelon HD receivers, direct access tuning is done by using the included remote. 1) Press DIRECT button on the remote; 2) Press number buttons to enter desired channel number; 3) Press DIRECT button again to exit direct tuning.

First of all, any radio in the right frequency will work with any other, to work just need the following features:
-Frequency, 154.700 which is correct as you said.
- the Squelch code, this could be PL or DPL.
The XV2100 has a table of codes that you can try, as you dont know this code form the Kenwood, you will need to check one by one.
If you have the chance to send the Kenwood to some to "Read" the radio parameters( freq.,Code, ETc) you can look those parameters on the XV.
