I am trying to fix an old radio that my girlfriend just bought. It's from around 1964. I'm just a normal electrician and I am not used to fixing things like this.
Radio model: Huldra 7-45 Skapmodell
Is there anything I should keep in mind before powering it up for the first time. In my experience, capacitors tend to fail. Is a capacitor from 1964 considered old? Should I replace any of them before powering up?
I can probably test the vacuum-tubes later with the power on.
I'm aware of the 400VDC that is probably lurking around that thing.
EDITS: I have been looking over the capacitors and many of them are named HUNTS, should I replace them too?
Here is a list of all the capacitors:
What do I have to keep in mind when trying to find replacements for them?
Also, is this the same, 002µF and 02µF, or does the amount of 0 matter?
0.008µF 150V |
02µF 150V |
05µF 150V |
01µF 400V |
002µF 400V |
003µF 400V |
04µF 400V |
005µF 400V |
008µF 400V |
0015µF 400V |
Rifa Miniprint: 0.22µF 200V | 0.47µF 200V | 0.022µF 400V. B 41 283: 100µF 15V.
Metallic ones: 5µF 100/110 | 50µF 350V | 5µF 400V.
