Hello, I am working on a zenette model L from 1931? I have a question as to what the knob on the right is for? The left most knob currently is on/off volume, the middle is tuning. It loooks like some has been in the radio chassis before. The switch in question appears broken and looks like a on/off switch. No wires are currently connected. Was it originally the on/off? Was the left switch just volume and the left switch I have has been replaced with a on/off volume switch?

A schematic would tell you.

A tone control is a possibility but no more than a guess.

I don't have a model L to check, but according to the service literature, it has separate part numbers for the on/off switch and the 10,000 ohm volume control.
So its gotta be a rotary on/off switch.

Thank you for the replies. I came to the same conclusion. It appears the original switch died and the fix used was to replace the original volume pot with a pot with a power switch.
