Post by Dan Walker on Wed Jul 29, 2015 6:12 pm

The volume control on one of these  actually is two controls in one  R1 and R3..  They are housed in one unit.. If anyone has one   I am willing to buy it  thanks   Dan

What are you working on, Dan? Make, etc? I'm sure there may be others who don't know what an "re57" is.

I guess when I joined a radio forum, I didn't know any model of anything .  Here are some photos of my Re 57.. It is  a 1930 Radio combination record player and record recorder. I do have everything working except the volume control is messed up.. Actually there are two volume controls in one unit. On the schematic there is R1 and R3 hou[img]http://sed in one unit..

What problem are you having, causing you to suspect the volume control? What troubleshooting have you done to confirm your suspicion?

I have the radio working and as soon as you move the volume control the audio quits and maybe if it is wiggled just right it will work. As I turn the knob there are spots where it seems to sort of bind.. These are wire wound so I have narrowed it down to that as being the problem.. I did talk to a friend that I have who had the same problem..
Thanks Dan

Got it. Have you cleaned the control really well? Perhaps several times in order to get it all cleaned. I have found volume controls to be pretty reliable over the years. I have also found some of the older ones particularly crabby about being cleaned. Good luck.
