Question about Crosley CR87CD CD Shelf System
It very well could be the power switch. I have repaired two of these where the on/off switch has gone bad, and the original part isn't available.
First, does the switch seem to be operating correctly? That is, does it feel like a definite click when you turn the control, or does it seem "mushy" in its operation? If the switch doesn't feel normal it's certainly at fault. It may still not work correctly even it feels normal, though. You can test it by connecting a jumper across the switch terminals while the unit is unplugged, and then plug it back in. If the power comes on you know the switch is bad.
The trouble, as I said before, is that the original part isn't available. My fix in both cases has been to install a new power switch on the rear panel and wire it to the circuit board inside, and solder a jumper wire across the bad switch terminals. The rear panel has ventilation holes that are convenient for putting in a small switch, and it's easy to reach. It's a little less convenient than the original, but it's a cheap and simple fix. For someone with a little soldering experience it's just a few minutes' work.
Thanks for using Fixya!
