When switching on I get a loud hum on all bands. I have replaced many capacitors and all the tubes but there is no change. Wattage use on warmed radio is 33 watts. 

My schematic shows standard European voltage 220 volts. I assume the voltages listed on the schematic relate to the 220 volts. As I live in the USA the line voltage is 120 volts so my measured voltages are lower. 

As I am very new at this, especially German radios, I am having trouble identifying some components. Is there a component identification sheet available for 1950's and 1960's German radios?

Thank you for any and all help that can be provided. Phillip Yannone.

Hi all.....This is a great little radio. AM and SW work fine, Nothing on FM. The schematic is a bit difficult to read. Can someone tell me where to start trouble shooting FM?  All tubes are good, and contacts cleaned. Thanks    AL

meine bd284u hat ein seltsames Problem:

Diverse Teile werden sehr heiß!

UL84 115 Grad, R1 110 Grad.

Die Meßwerte sehen so aus: G1 UL84 0V, Kathode UL84 +12,2 V, G2 UL84 170V, C82, C85 und R55 sind ok.

Ich habe jetzt aus schierer Not R55 auf 1,1K verändert, Kathode jetzt +18,3 V, die Temperatur der UL84 ist jetzt 80 Grad, das Radio spielt auch einwandfrei.

Was kann denn da das Problem sein?

Vielen Dank im voraus,

Michael Huber
