Need Relay for CT-17 Pre Amp

Post by gsb001 » Wed Dec 03, 2008 3:52 pm

Hi All,
I'm trying to get my system back up by 12/23.

Based on my post "CT-17 that won't turn off", I think relay RY900 is bad.

Part number:
DMIT - SS - 112LM

Does anyone have or know where I can get this part?

OBI56 checked his sources and came up empty.

Thanks
Steve

You might not be able to find the exact part. What are the relay specifications — maybe a substitute can be shoehorned in.

Bill, I got the part number from my very blurry copy of the CT-17 Service Manual and GSB confirmed the number visually. The Service Manual does not list any specs on the relay; in fact, all it says in the description is Relay. If I'm realing the plans and PCB layouts correctly the relay is right next to the switched power outlets.

GSB, any other numbers on the relay (voltage, etc.....) that might give us a clue? Also, some size neasurements would be helpful in pinning down a replacement.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Yes - there are voltage markings. I'll get tonight (at work now) and send with measurments.
Thanks

I tried to get more numbers off this part over the weekend.

Way to small for me to read. I need to get a magnifying glass.

Thanks
Steve

Wanted to update this thread.

I took my CT17 to Midwest Audio in Schaumburg Il.

I got it back about two weeks ago. They were able to repalce the relay with comp part. All is working right now. Repair was about $130 total.
