Hi,
Does anybody have a clue where I can source a replacement dual-concentric volume/squelch potentiometer for my Kenwood TR-751E ?

Many thanks in advance,

Hi Gary,

that kenwood part is no longer available.

I replaced a similar pot/switch on an
old scanner with one made by Alps.

take a look, you may find one that will work for
the kenwood.

http://www3.alps.com/WebObjects/catalog.woa/E/HTML/Potentiometer/MetalShaft/RK097/RK09711110AL.html

if you ask, they will send you a sample.

My apology for the mis-information.

I did not realize the "discont" meant they no longer carried it, just that it was out of production.

James, if that means it's no longer available, why does Kenwood parts list a price? That seems contradictive.

hi Lon,

kenwoodparts.com is not connected with kenwood,
they are East Coast Transistor located
on long island ny  (not far from CT)

I guess their website and order system
could use an update/refresh !

pacparts.com shows is discontinued.

I even checked rossdist.com, no luck.

I'm sure Alps has a part that will work.

James:

<< kenwoodparts.com is not connected with kenwood, >>

I am aware of that - now. Smiley

I guess they are the radio equivalent of Numrich Arms for "obsolete" gun parts.

Have a good weekend.

Thanks everybody, but no joy so far.
The problem with this particular part is the built in power switch.
I've seen several similar pot's but none with the switch.
I'll have to hold out and see if I can source an original.

Many thanks.

Is anybody aware of a compatible part from another Kenwood set or otherwise ?

Hi James,
The switch and the squelch pot seem fine, just the volume section has failed.

Regards,
Gary.

hi Gary,

you may be able to drill a small hole in the
plastic and force in some contact cleaner,
that may help until you can find a replacement.

Thanks James,
I may try that in desperation !!!
Well, a U.K. Kenwood repair center have stated that they have several in stock.
They will not sell me the part.
They will however, gladly charge me $60 for the part and nearly $200 for the labour.

Try contacting http://www.oldradioparts.net/

Mark has a very extensive stock of pots and there is a good chance that he can assemble a control that meets the specs.
