G'day all, as the subject suggests, I have a Kriesler Multisonic stereo that hasn't been working for some time. It belonged to my grandmother and I remember it used to sound fantastic. I put it in a local electronics shop to get repaired but it needs a new 'main power transformer' which they can't find.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find one?

Many thanks in advance,

Wearney

I can't find the schematic for that particular model, so I don't know the specs of that particular transformer.

Such "E-I" style transformers are difficult to source these days, especially in Australia. The toroidal style has essentially replaced them.

There are some guys who will rewind such transformers, as long as they are given the specifications.

... and such repairs shops are also very rare these days!

If you get onto HRSA you may find one, or a person that can rewind. There is a guy in our radio club that can do them, but I do not know if he rewinds for others?

David Brown in Victoria specialises in rewinding transformers. His prices are very reasonable and has a fast turnaround. Aust Post charges for a large transformer are a killer though, nearly as much as David charges.

Marc,

If your mate does do rewinds for others he may wish to have his details recorded in the Services Directory. I think David (mentioned above) already is.

Thank you gentlemen, it appears that I may have found a transformer in a unit from South Australia. Unfortunately the chap who owns it doesn't know how to take it out but hopefully he can figure it out.

How large is the chassis? Might be worthwhile paying him to send you the whole chassis?

There is a discussion on the 11-133B here:-

https://vintage-radio.com.au/default.asp?f=1&th=697

The 11-133B is similar to a 11-98, the only difference being a solid state power supply.

Here are some more pictures of the chassis:-

.Mono: where did you find that image of the original label with schematic?

Kriesler stapled these labels on the back of their radiograms. The 11-133B label, along with the chassis as pictured (pending), was salvaged from a wrecked cabinet.
