Mechanical Repair Services

Victor motors were designed to last for many years, but over time, many problems can develop:

Victor soundboxes can deteriorate, causing low volume, distortion, or no sound at all:

Other mechanical issues can develop:

These repairs can be done through many qualified sources, or by the competent home-handyman. Step by step instructions can be found in some of the books listed in the RESOURCES section of this website. However, the process of cleaning 100 year-old hardened grease off the springs and attempting to remove and replace the large steel spring assemblies can be very messy, difficult and even treacherous unless extreme care is taken.
