Re: Zenith A32B41W 32
They are labeled 561K 2KV, stands for 560pF (pico Farad) 2000volt.
can easily get replacements from Digi-key, Mouser Electronics, Allied
Electronics, Newark Electronics, and many other places. (sorry, your
local Radio Shack doesn't have them.) I suggest that you get 2500-3500
volt as replacements as that's probably what they should have been in
the first place. At Digi-Key I found part number 490-4141-ND,
3.15KV replacements at $0.33 ea., the shipping will be the biggest part
of the cost!

The 1000pF 2KV caps in the Zenith sets are notorious for burning up. I have seen it many, many times. The ground "plate" you describe is a dual spark gap, between the tuner ground and each side of the AC line. This part literally does nothing until a bolt of lightning hits very close to your house. Even if it shows signs of arcing, it is still good and does not need to be replaced, unless it has melted into a blob of goo and that never happens. The silver part you describe is the degaussing thermistor. It only works for the first half-second when the set is turned on, demagnetizing the picture tube. If you do not replace the thermistor, it is possible that when you move the set you will see that the colors are not quite right in the corners of the picture. If you are careful you can solder the legs back onto the thermistor, but they love to crack when heated with a soldering iron. Bring the broken one to your local TV shop and they will most certainly have many new ones in stock.
