    Hello, I have just bought a Kenwood TR-751A 2 meter and the Volume/Squelch knob in Volume cuts in/Out and the Squelch never breaks to static.
    I've pulled the potentiometer Out of the unit but looks like I'll distroy it attempting to repair it.
    Anybody know of a good solid repair or somewhere I can send it.

    The replacements from rrcom, I forget the p.n., work. You will need to tweak the legs a bit to fit on the board.

    And it will be twist on/off, not push like the original.

    I would try to stand it on end and apply alcohol to the control shaft, Rotate it so the alcohol gets to the carbon.

    I have done this and it can work, With nothing to lose, Unless you use Everclear. :oops:

    Good Luck.

    ALPS was the OEM supplier of this Dual-unit potentiometer.
    The original model is likely discontinued, but you can check current production models.

    STATE Electronics, contact Thomas Sutcliffe for potential replacements / substitutions.

    One of the guys on a microwave related mailing list has detailed how he's been trying to salvage the original pot. I think the problem, once you disassemble it by drilling out the tiny rivets, is finding something to hold it back together.

    I would just replace it if has been removed.

    Yes that can be done, I have done it. But cleaning can be done without disassembly.
