The mounting grommets for the tuning capacitor are close to a dial light and can suffer from heat stress. This causes the capacator to come loose from the correct position and the dial cord comes free.

On my Kolster Brandes MP151/2 The three grommets had totally perished. I couldn't get suitable replacements so I "kluged" it with the hot melt glue gun around the three tubes that go inside grommets. The glue sticks are a bit "rubbery" anyway, so not too bad a fix.

It could be they just perished.

I get grommets from an Auto Parts supplier or an Auto Electrician. They are sold by Internal Diameter I.E. for the planned use with a particular wire size.
