Volume control on GE Superadio

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: [email protected] they can probably help you. They're quite good at finding parts.

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........ http://users.netonecom.net/~swordman/Radio/GEsrIIIAlign.htm

My GE Concept II wall-mounted dryer's drum belt is broken. Where can I find this part?


Go to the GE website with the GE model number and serial number to find the applicable belt part number. Then you can call your local appliance store for the part.

Broken wireless antenna


It's advised that actually attempting a fix on a wireless antenna is uneconmical and it would prove cheaper to just purchase a new screw on antenna from your local ocmputer or electronics store.

Hello Arthur.
If the pot has an engraved / embossed / screen printed value on it you may also be able to buy an exact replacement from your local electronics component stockist.
Otherwise take it with you as a sample.
Pots are standard values, so most component stores will stock your one.
This will be cheaper and speedier than ordering one.
Regards, Clive.

Mike you probably have a bad speed control pot. There is a broken wire after the center tap in the pot causing it to shut down. That shouldn't be hard if Quickie can get you the part. You could always chech at a local electronics store for a pot but it would have to be like the one on your chair Hope this helps

The volume control is not working... even when the volme is "off" it is still on


Chances are the resistance element in the volume control has broken. This is COMMON if the control knob gets smashed some way.

A less common thing would be broken solder where the control is soldered to the circuit board. This would be obvious once the board is accessable.

Servicing involves removing the chassis and replacing the potentiometer.

Volume control pot is bad. Tagged VR1 on PC


Before you replace the pot, try cleaning it. Use electrical contact cleaner such as:

- CRC QD Electrical Contact Cleaner (available at many auto supply stores) - www.crcindustries.com
- Caig DeoxIT (available at Radio Shack and electronics supply stores) - www.caig.com/

Spray the cleaner liberally in the pot (spray where the shaft meets the pot, and if possible, into any holes on the back of the pot), and rotate the shaft repeatedly. Repeat several times.

If the pot is still intermittent, it can be replaced, but you need to replace it with a compatible part, and the job will require some soldering skills to prevent damaging the rest of the circuit.

Make sure you get an appropriate replacement. You need a replacement pot with the correct resistance (measured in ohms) and taper (linear or analog). Typically, the value of the pot is marked on the back, and will read something like "103A" or "10K - B". 103 or 10K indicate the resistance in ohms, and "A" or "B" indicate whether it is linear or audio, respectively.

Your best bet is to desolder the part and take it to a local electronics store for a replacement. If no store is available locally, replacements can be ordered from online stores such as:

- Mouser.com
- Jameco.com
- Digikey.com

Feel free to post the numbers on the back of the pot if you need help locating an appropriate replacement.


(Note that the convention for labeling taper has changed over time - getting the wrong taper should not damage the equipment, but will probably result in the volume control to seem "not smooth.")

31/2 Quart older model crock pot


I just recently got a crock Pot # 3100 in the almond color that someone had left at work many years ago and never picked up. They were going to throw it out. All 3 of the little plastic feet were broken off. I went to a local thrift store and found the same crock pot without the stoneware liner. The case was in perfect shape and still had all 3 plastic feet attached. I paid $2.00 for it and just recycled the old one that I had. I see these at thrift stores pretty frequently and have even seen the lids (glass and plastic) by themselves. If you are looking for replacement parts, Rival does not carry many parts for these older Crock Pots and your local thrift store is an excellent source.
