Default Re: Vintage sears Silvertone radio safety question

Possibly! You may be lucky and only have taken out the panel lamp and/or one of the valve heaters. How are you with a multimeter?



In any case, unless the set has recently been properly serviced and any dodgy capacitors replaced it is very risky (to the set) just to plug it in even to the correct mains voltage supply- see "that capacitor" for starters!


Edit: Looks like it's one of these:

(There're innumerable "Sears Silvertone" sets- the name seems to be a portmanteau in-house brand.)
