GE model RM3100
« on: November 23, 2018, 06:17:18 PM »
Picked this one up off the curb... is just a phono , no radio... cabinet is in pristine condition... needs work, searched for a schematic ... even on the sams photofact site... they don't list the model .... maybe I need to search with the chassis number? ... anyone by chance have a schematic for this model?
Thanks
Elton

Yes, do a search by chassis number if it is stamped on the chassis box.

There is a GE RC3100 in Sams at 646-7 from 1963.

You gave us no info on the amp, so that would help.
Post photos of it, with pertinent amp info.

Another place you can try is Steven Johnson's website.  Here's the link for it  https://stevenjohnson.com/manuals/schematics.htm
Even though a lot of the schematics are Sam's photofact folders, his scans are MUCH better then the ones that Sam's sends out.  They are usually much less costly, and a better product (higher resolution scan).  I won't download from Sam's anymore because of their quality.

Larry, I have that SAMS if you don't, scanning is not so easy these days. The GE I just picked up and another I got 6 months ago really have very different amps, but share VM 1200 series record players. I have not got into either one yet. :-[ I'm doing my RCA tube and Fisher SS consolesthis dark season.

One AMP is SE 6AQ5 and 12AX7 and the other PP 7355, perhaps a hotter version of 6V6 . Both AMPS are on PC boards, like only GE would do :-\, meaning a playdate with the soldering iron is necessary, using 18-ga. bare wire to lifted traces and tube socket pins.

Thanks... I did get it from Steve Johnson... his scans are high quality, and 1 page at a time... not like Sams photofact where they cram 2 pages on to a single scan and charge premium for them...
