Greetings to all from Lachute, Quebec… i have recently purchased a Nordmende Fidelio 300 with no sound on the right speaker. I have tested the right speaker using the left speaker wire and it does work, i have also looked for bad connections but without any success.
I have very limited tube radio knowledge and dont know were to look next, youre help would be greatly appreciated, i’am including pictures of the radio.

here’s a link to information about your radio. If you click on the schematic, you should be able to print it out.

Hi Gary….i have very little knowledge and would not understand a shematic. I noticed youre in Montreal, could u take a look at it?

Genarro, my advice is to learn how to read a schematic, and learn about electronics. You might find someone to do the repair, but this group is doing what it does because it enjoys the challenge of fixing radios, rather than the challenge of getting someone else to fix it as a favour. We’re willing to help, but it sounds like you won ‘t be able to give us any information about the radio so that we could help you.February 5, 2021 at 6:14 am #16196
Gennaro, Although I speak German, I’m not that fluent in German radios. If you don’t have a basic understanding of Schematics at a minimum, I doubt this forum will be of much use to you. I’m pretty sure I recently came across an ad for someone specialising in German radios in the Montreal area.. I will try to find out the contact info.February 5, 2021 at 7:20 am #16198

Thanks to all for your help!February 5, 2021 at 1:23 pm #16201
Gennaro, here’s the link to the repair guy specialising in German radios. I have not personally had any dealings with him, so you’re on your own.February 6, 2021 at 6:04 am #16202
Thanks Gary….wondering if you knew another radio technician by the name of Gary, he lived in Anjou?February 6, 2021 at 6:12 am #16203
No, can’t say i do. I’ve only been at this for a couple of years and still learning the ropes as well.February 7, 2021 at 7:37 am #16223Jean MarcotteForum Participant
Hi Gennaro, it’s not a speaker or speaker connection problem. This is a stereo set and one channel is not operating. I would rule out a faulty tube also since the same tubes do both channels. I would suspect a bad contact in a switch wich is quite common in german radios with “piano” type selectors. You can try spraying the switches with contact cleaner (Deoxit is the best) and play with the switches to see if the dead channel comes back to life. If that does’nt work I’m not a specialist in german radios but I can have a look at it. I live in Laval.
