Anyone know where I can get a schematic or even a copy of a schematic for a Kuba Limone radio. I just picked up this unit the other weekend at an Antique store and it needs some service.

Thanks,

Tony

Hi Tony,

Kuba was a German manufacturer who made a limited number of console radio/phonographs in 1957/58. Most of the models used the same 10 tube radio model 832, while the cabinet kept changing appearance. There are 12 models listed at www.Radiomuseum.org where you can probably get a schematic, however, I would first try to find a model number on your set since a few of the units had a different model (#822) radio inside.
All the units listed in the Radiomuseum site have photos and you could probably identify your set from them.
Good luck

Please show me a picture, the set may have an Imperial, Telefunken or some what chassis inside, I send you scans free,
if I have the schematic.
"Limone" sounds not german, Kuba had produced some sets in Canada with german chassis for the north american market.
:wink:

This is what I cam up with when I did a search on radiomuseum. I'll try to get some pics posted when I get the chance.

You did a better job of searching than I. I only checked under Kuba. Did not think of looking under Limone.

These are some of the pics of the unit. Included are the name and serial # of the stereo. There is also a pic of the chassis which has a sticker on it which I presume to be the number you are looking for . I also noticed that it says that it's IMPERIAL. What soes this mean?

Thanks a bunch,

I see, that it is a "modern" radio, because of the english writing
an export chassis (FM up to 108 MHz?).
I may have the schematic, but over the week-end I may find it. :?

If I get a minute this weekend as well, I will take the chassis out of the stereo and see if I can get some better pictures of the chassis and tube layout. I'm not sure if all this can go well without un-soldering the wires for the turntable power off the primary of the transformer. I also noticed that the lights for the tuner are coming off the secondary of the transformer and they ARE NOT working. Might need to investigat further in this area. That is why I'm not too worried about taking the chassis out. Will have to eventually to do some tests on it while it's plugged in. Can't do it casue the backing has to be attached in order for the AC to make a connection to the chassis.

Let me know what you come up with. I am in no hurry and appreciate any help I get along the way. Thanks for your attention to this post.

Tony

I just picked up a Kuba hawaii 7000 console radio at a estate sale. It is similar to the Blaupunkt console with the martini bar. Would you like some pictures for your gallery?
