Hi pab69874

Have you been able to test the speakers to determine that that is the problem? Parts are quite available for vintage gear, you just need to know where to look. If the speaker drivers are faulty, if you can give me the make and model number off the back of the magnet, I can source them for you.

SOURCE: How do I get to the control panel on a Maytag washer?

First, does the machine stop filling if you pull the plug? If not, he is wrong and you need the fill valve. The piece the hoses go into. If it does stop when plug pulled then he is likely correct.

Pull machine away from the wall. Disconnect power. The control panel has two plastic end caps. The rear edge of each end cap will show a hole which has a partially covered Phillips head screw in it. Put a screwdriver in and remove the screw in each end cap.

Move to the front of the washer. Grasp each end cap and pull straight toward you about 1/4 " to 1/2 " then lift. The control panel should disengage from the top of the machine. The top of the control panel stays attached to the back plate of the washer. Rotate the front of the control up. This will expose all parts in the control panel.

Look for a 1/4" clear hose coming from inside the machine to one of the switches. This small hose can become detached from the switch and not send the "full" signal to shut the water off. It may also develop a small air leak which prevents the signal. If the hose is detached...reattaching and adding a hose clamp will prevent future detachment. if not detached, the pressure (level) switch itself is likely the problem.

Reverse the above process to reattach the control panel. If the machine is full spin to empty before testing your repair to remove water from tube. Good Luck.

Adjust tone arm


Usually there is a hole towards the back of where the tonearm is mounted that adjusts the set down area. Be aware that some have two holes one for set down and one for pick up of tonearm. These can be adjusted with a flat blade screwdriver. Check and see with a good flashlight. Adjust slowly and check to make sure you are turning it in the correct direction.

I have vestax 05pro2. Left channel works but out of one speaker. The turntable input is good. Im thinking Its either the channel fader, or the rca inputs for that side. Has anyone had this problem?


Hi,
Here's a solution to see if you have a problem with either your receiver or turntable.
The turntable has 2 RCA's one red for right channel, and one white or black for left channel, which plug into the back of the amplifier.

  • Unplug both RCA from rear of amplifier.
  • Plug in a cd or dvd player into those inputs on the amplifier, the sound will be lower but it will give you an indication if the amplifier is ok or not.
  • If you have sound on both channels left and right then the amplifier is good
  • If you still only have sound on left channel, then there is a problem with the right channel input on the amp.
  • If your amp, is good, unplug the cd /dvd player.
  • Put a record on and start playing the record
  • Plug the white or black RCA from the turntable into the rear of the amplifier marked left, you should have sound.
  • now unplug it from the left and plug in into the right red RCA socket, if you have sound the amplifier is working fine.
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge on the turntable
  • now lets reverse the test
  • unplug both RCA from amp.
  • Plug the red RCA into the left socket on amplifier, if there is sound, turntable is working fine, if no sound there is a problem with either the stylus cartridge or that red RCA cable.
  • now unplug the red RCA from the left side and plug it into the right side socket
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge or RCA cable.
I hope this helps

Sometimes you have to invert a changer and place on padded supports to get access to cartridge. Be sure to identify wire connections to the old cartridge before removal and keep track of cartridge mounting hardware so it doesn't get lost.

My turntable keeps skiping for no reason, no matter the record. i also made sure the turntable was level. the turntable is a vestax 2000mkII


What is the weight on the stylus? Flip the protective shield down to protect the stylus if available. Tare the tone arm (adjust the counterweight on the back of the arm until the arm floats perfectly level), then hold the counterweight and turn the dial markings to read zero. If you cannot find the recommended mass for the stylus you can use the average weight of 3g. Verify your tone arm is still floating in the center and the arm is perfectly level. Turn the counterweight until the dial indicates the specified weight of the cartridge manufacture specification sheet or you can set it for 3g if you do not have the specification sheet.

How do I replace a 1963 Wurlizer Jukebox needle?


Most stylus simply pull out forwards. The front end sits in a slight rubber groove and the back end is held in a metal clip. So you lift the front end and pull away in the direction the tone arm is pointing.

Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.


A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.
