A Hotpoint TV set

Post by Wildcat445 on Fri Dec 13, 2013 5:07 pm

I thought Hotpoint only built kitchen appliances.   Rolling Eyes  This thing looks like a nightmare to work on.  A printed-circuit chassis laying on its side up against the CRT.  Motorized tuning of some kind.  Allegedly built by GE, renowned for their PCB chassis with defective/dirty/corroded tube sockets.  Everything crammed in together, yet half the cabinet is empty.  What do you think, Bill?

Hotpoint was GE's cheap make. They sold a lot of TV's, and, radios under that name. Very cheaply built.

I have several little cheap GE clock radios, and when you say cheap, GE had cheap down to a science. I don't think the Hotpoint set, which you say is a CHEAP GE would be something that I could successfully repair. I noticed that it looked different, so I posted it for you to see. Thanks, again, Bill. I had never seen a Hotpoint radio or tv.

Wasn't saying it wasn't fixable. Just saying it was their cheap line, just like RCA's Little Nipper, and, Radiola lines of fourties were their cheap lines.

I kinda like that set. Smile

I have lots of experience with battling GE "quality" and printed circuit boards, but that thing would still be sitting 10 years from now if I got ahold of it...

Speaking of which, I've now had my GE "Locomotive" tv about that long, and, it's still a shelf queen.

It is certainly different. I liked the looks of it, until I saw the picture with the back off.
