"Well, I would unscrew the nut on the wafer switch, turn it 180 deg and then put it back on the shaft. It should align with the notch on the wafer, and behave correctly when turned. Let us know... Kent"

Kent King replied to douglas wright's discussion all wave 15 question
"If the wave change switch is in the BC position, the coil wheel is in the set correctly. The one tube with NO wires on it is the BC RF, because the BC antenna coil is <above> the chassis. For the 3 SW bands, the RF coils switch in. But if the…"

"need a little more help, I believe someone before me must have removed coil wheel, in the photo which one is the broadcast band coil?"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to douglas wright's discussion all wave 15 question
"There are two possibilities that can result in the 180-degree misalignment above the chassis.  One is that the phenolic water was removed and replaced out of phase and the other is that the bandswitch was rotated.  The former is more…"

"Here is my AW-15 switch. The middle leaf of the switch has a leg that rides on the fibre cam. Photo is in broadcast position and the contact is is to the outer leaf towards the tuning dial. Turning the band switch moves the cam counter…"

David C. Poland replied to douglas wright's discussion all wave 15 question
"Hence the reason to 1) put the band switch in Broadcast position before dismounting the coil wheel and 2) not moving the band switch until the coil wheel is re-installed. Protects the switch seen in your photo. That little fibre cam under that hex…"

"I had one that appeared bad, but it was a broken wire. It had corroded at old terminal. Was able to tease out the end of the very fine wire and solder a short extension to bridge to the terminal strip."

"Well...I am perpetually short of tuning meters - many are bad and I have no spares at present, in spite of all the parts chassis I have. Kent"

"There's plenty of parts sets for AW-15s out there.  If your meter checks bad, you should be able to get a replacement fairly easy. "
Jan 4
Kent King replied to douglas wright's discussion all wave 15 question
"If your meter is bad, it will not impact performance of the set. I have to admit, I had not read the manual about bridging the terminal connections with a wire. If you did that on an AW23, it would burn out a resistor underneath - but the circuit in…"
