{Collins} 30S1 B+ Problem



Gentlemen--I purchased a 30S1 that worked OK at the seller's house.  When I=
 got home and tried it out it didn't work--there was no B+.   My troublesho=
oting skills are limited, but here's what I tried:                         =
                                                                           =
                                                                           =
                                                                           =
                                                                           =
        1.  Interlocks and fuses were checked and found to be OK           =
                                                                           =
                                                                           =
           2.Timer relay K202 was pulled and bench checked and found to be =
OK                                                                         =
                                                                           =
                         3. The relay deck was dropped and the relay coils =
were found to have continuity through them.                                =
                                                                           =
                                                               4. The relay=
 contacts were cleaned with emory cloth and found to mate properly.        =
                                                                           =
                                                                           =
        5. After putting the thing back together again, the smoke test yiel=
ded no B+ again.                                                           =
                                                                           =
                                     6.  After taking some precautions, it =
was discovered that the relays were not activating--almost as if the B+ ON =
switch was not working.                                                    =
                                                                           =
                                                                           =
                                                                           =
                                                      With that in mind, ho=
w does one gain access to the B+ ON switch to check it out?  Does anyone ou=
t there in Collins Land have any other ideas to solve this problem?  Thanks=
.  Brian
