There's A World of Entertainment and Pleasure

In Your New Zenith Radio-Phonograph

This new Zenith radio-phonograph offers you a new measure of complete listening pleasure. With it you will enjoy . . . (1) the finest in record reproduction as made possible by Zenith Cobra Tone Arm and the Cobra-matic Record Changer . . . (2) amazing 3-way Cobra Tone Arm which employs the radionic-wave principle for superb, dependable reproduction of 78 R.P.M. standard records, 33 1/3 R.P.M. Long Playing Microgroove records, new 45 R.P.M. Microgroove records . . . (3) Genuine Armstrong FM-rich in tone quality and free from static or interference . . . (4) superb reception of your favorite radio programs on AM or FM.

The "Microgroove" process makes possible the recording of a full six record album on just one record. Thus a full-length symphony or concerto, or a complete selection of dance or dinner music can be played from one disc. A full loading of ten 33 1/3 R.P.M. microgroove records will give several hours of enjoyable listening pleasure.

This revolutionary new record, made of nonbreakable vinylite, permits a high quality, noise free reproduction whose high fidelity heretofore was found only in master studio recordings. A full issue of both classical and popular records of this type are now available for your enjoyment.

Your new Zenith features an improved Radiorgan which puts "tone mastery" at your fingertips . . . permits you to hear either records or broadcasts with just the tone effect you prefer.

FREQUENCY MODULATION

Radio broadcast transmissions are of two types, Amplitude Modulation (Standard-Broadcast) and Frequency Modulation (FM).

Frequency Modulation provides a tremendous improvement in the reduction of interference of static. In most installations, particularly those not too distant from the transmitting station, static of all types is entirely absent.

Frequency Modulation allows the transmission of not only a greatly increased tonal range, resulting in hearing musical instruments and sounds which previously have been unheard, but also of a greatly increased dynamic range, allowing the loudest and softest passages to be heard in their true proportions.

POWER SUPPLY AND OUTPUT

Your Zenith is designed for operation on 110 to 125 volts, 60 cycle alternating current (AC) only. Do not attempt to operate on direct current (DC), or damage will result. If you are not certain of the type, voltage or frequency in cycles of youf electricity, check with the electric company.

Power consumption of the entire unit, including the record changer, is 120 watts. The maximum audible power output of this receiver is 15 watts. This power output means that you have ample reserve above the requirements for any ordinary need.

UNPACKING

The record changer has been securely packed to avoid damage in shipment. Remove all packing material before attempting to operate this changer.

NOTE: The packing material will vary with type of cabinet. Be sure to read all tags and remove packing strips, bolts, etc.

Before operating the record changer, the shipping bolt holding the phono motor assembly must be removed. Proceed as follows:

Remove the turntable by lifting it directly up from the record changer. Then remove the red-stained motor shipping bolt (See Fig. 1). Be certain to retain this bolt since it should be used in case of reshipment.
Page 4:

Use a wide blade screwdriver and turn the three mounting bolts (See Fig. 4) clockwise until the heads are flush with the mounting plate. This allows the changer to "float" on its shock mounts.

REMOVE MOTOR MOUNTING BOLT

Antenna Systems

This set is equipped with a built-in wavemagnet eliminating the need for an external antenna and ground under normal operating conditions. If hum is apparent when operating the set, move the AC cord away from the wavemagnet.

If this, set is operated in districts far distant from broadcasting stations, the addition of an antenna 25 to 100 feet long will improve reception. Connect the antenna to the "AM" terminal on the terminal strip (See Fig. 2). Addition of a good ground connected to terminal "G" will also help to improve reception.

Figure 2-Antenna and Ground Terminals
Page 5:

For Frequency Modulation: The special built-in Line Antenna is designed for Frequency Modulation reception. In average locations, where strong signals are received from transmitting station, this antenna system will provide excellent reception. Be sure the A.C. cord is stretched out in back of the receiver. Do not coil or bunch it. Also try the plug both ways in the power socket for the position which gives best FM reception. In locations where electrical interference is experienced, particularly close to areas with heavy automobile traffic, or in locations distant from the transmitting stations, a Zenith FM Antenna Kit should be employed. Antenna Kits S-I4188 or S-14838 may be purchased from your Zenith Dealer. To connect the lead-in from the FM Antenna Kit to the receiver, first remove the line antenna (blue wire) from the antenna terminal (see Fig. 2) and connect one side of the lead-in to the FM antenna terminal and the other side to "G" terminal above. Detailed instructions are included with each antenna.

DIAL CALIBRATION

Broadcast Band: The bottom dial scale is the broadcast portion of the dial, and is calibrated in kilocycles, minus the last zero. For example, a station listed as operating on 650 kilocycles will be found at 65 on your dial scale. A station listed at 1450 kilocycles will be tuned in at 145-and so on. Use this scale when the Phono AM-FM knob is set to AM position.

Frequency Modulation: The station channels of the Frequency Modulation band extends from 88 to 108 megacycles. To cover this range the Zenith dial has one FM scale. This scale is used when the Phono AM-FM knob is set to FM, and is calibrated from 88 MC to 108 MC.

TUNING

Broadcast Band: Figure 3 shows the position of the Tuning and Volume Control knobs. To place the instrument in operation, turn the Volume
Page 6:

Control knob to the right. Allow about 30 seconds for the tubes to reach operating temperature. Set the Phono AM-FM knob to the AM position.

To tune the receiver, turn the Tuning Control knob slowly to the desired station and readjust the Volume Control knob to the right or left for the desired volume. To turn the receiver OFF, rotate the Volume Control knob as far as it will go to the left until a "click" is heard.

Frequency Modulation: The receiver is turned ON and OFF in the same manner as in broadcast operation. The Phono AM-FM knob must be set to FM position. Tuning the receiver on the Frequency Modualtion band will require more care than on the broadcast band. A hissing sound may be noted when tuning between Frequency Modulation stations. This is normal, and will disappear as the station is tuned in. After a station is located, the pointer should be moved back and forth over it until the point of quietest reception and best tonal quality is found. Correct tuning is indicated by the disappearance of background noise. Although on rare occasions Frequency Modulation stations are heard over great distances do not expect to tune in other than your local stations. The nature of Frequency Modulation transmission limits reception to the approximate horizon.

Figure 3-Control Panel Front View
Page 7:

ZENITH RADIORGAN

The three buttons at each side of the Control Panel are the exclusive Radiorgan Tone Control for both radio and records. The six buttons, marked "Treble," "Voice," "Alto," "Bass," "Lo Bass" and "Normal," enable you to have just the tone effect you want for each program or record. Each button gives particular emphasis to one segment of the tone scale. Actually 64 different tone variations may be obtained by different combination of IN and OUT positions of the buttons.

Experiment with these button positions until you learn for yourself which tone effects you prefer. First, have all the buttons pulled out. Then, while you listen to a radio program or record, depress the "Treble" and "Voice" buttons. You will notice that the bass notes are emphasized without loss of the fundamental higher tones. Next, pull out the "Treble" and "Voice" buttons, and depress the "Bass" and "Lo Bass" buttons. With the buttons in this position, the accent will be on the higher tones, yet the lower registers are not eliminated.

LOADING THE CHANGER

For automatic operation on 3> 1/3, 45 and 78 R.P.M. records.

1. Raise record pressure arm from spindle and move to right (See Fig. 5).

2. Place the stack of records over spindle and replace record pressure arm (See Fig. 6).

3. When placing records singly or a few at a time on the spindle be certain to hold these records firmly until the pressure arm is placed over the records. This will prevent the records from prematurely falling to the turntable.

4. The record stacks may consist of the following groups:

A. Ten 10 inch 78 R.P.M. records.

B. Ten 12 inch 78 R.P.M. records.

C. Ten 10 inch 33 1/3 R.P.M. records.

D. Ten 12 inch 33 1/3 R.P.M. records.

E. Ten 7 inch 45 R.P.M. records.

F. Ten 7 inch 33 1/3 R.P.M. records.

5. Do not intermix different size or type records.

CAUTION

BE CERTAIN WHEN REPLACING THE CARTRIDGE THAT ONLY A RED-GREEN CARTRIDGE IS USED FOR REPLACEMENT. THE USE OF ANY OTHER COLORED CARTRIDGE WILL DAMAGE THE RECORDS.

CHANGING THE NEEDLE CARTRIDGE

If it becomes necessary to change the Needle Cartridge- due to wear or mishandling, proceed as follows:

1. Set the SPEED SHIFT LEVER to OFF position.

2. Raise the Tone Arm.

3. Grasp the Needle Cartridge with the finger tips and gently pull it straight out.
Page 12:

4. Insert a new Needle Cartridge and push it in gently with the thumb. The Cartridge is indexed and can only be inserted one way. Use care -forcing the cartridge in at the wrong angle will damage the socket. Study Figure 9.

Needle Cartridge Out Inserting Needle Cartridge

Figure 9-Replacing the Needle Cartridge

CARE OF RECORDS

Small effort on your part will insure long life for your records. Do not expose them to heat from the sun, radiators/or stoves. Store your records in albums in a cool, dry place resting vertically or horizontally. Remove dust and dirt with a soft cloth using a light circular motion. Even a fine film of dust often contains abrasive particles which, when ground against the record surface by the needle, may cause very rapid wear.

1. Excessive scratch and poor tone quality are usually caused by worn or warped records. The amount of surface and background noise on new records will vary, depending on the quality of manufacture, the type of music recorded, and the care given the records. An occasional squeak may be heard. This may be caused by friction between the spindle and the records on the turntable. A thin application of wax or paraffin to the lower part of the spindle will eliminate the squeak.

2. Never allow records to remain on the spindle when the Record Changer is not in use. To do so may result in warping of records and failure of the changer to play such records.
Page 13:

3. Thin substandard records may drop double into playing position.

4. Thick substandard records may not slide down in playing position.

5. Occasional soft records may chip and wear out quickly at the center hole.

6. Warped or dished records, or records with bulging center holes will slip on the turntable stack and not properly drive records above. This causes "wows" and uneven speeds.

TUBES
This diagram (Fig. 10) indicates the location of the various tubes in the chassis. We suggest that tube replacements be made by your Zenith service man. However, if it should ever be necessary for you to do this yourself, the diagram will indicate type and location of each tube.

SERVICE
The Zenith Automatic Record Changer is constructed with a minimum of working parts, and its operation is simple and reliable. As is the case with all mechanical devices, minor adjustments may occasionally be necessary. Call your authorized Zenith dealer for professional service when required.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1918 Westinghouse Range Owners Manual
This is the oldest owners manual for any major appliance we have found up to this point. Westinghouse very first range was in 1914, so this is very early in the line. I can only imagine what housewives had to cook on before this range. This is a fascinating look at early range history. Even the writing style is completely different than what you'd see today by far!

Most women would like to cook if it did not require standing
over a hot stove. Planning a meal is not hard and mixing
various ingredients into the promise of delicious dainties or
preparing a roast for the oven is rather fun . But to be held
in the kitchen or even in the house during the long hours of
watchfulness is a different matter. And it is right here that
the Westinghouse electric range steps in and lifts the burden.

When the food has been prepared it may be trusted to
this silent servant with perfect confidence. There is no possibility
of instructions being forgotten or misunderstood . At
a given time, (the time decided upon,) the clock will turn on
the current and the meal will begin to cook. Again when just
the correct temperature has been reached in the oven, the thermostat
will turn the current off again and when madam enters
the kitchen after an afternoon of leisure or pleasure the meal
is ready to serve.

She herself is prepared to enjoy the meal equally as well
as any member of the family , because she has not had to think
about it since early morning.

Because the Westinghouse range reduces the labors of cooking
to the minimum, requiring no watching nor constant regulation
of heat, because it produces better food , and because
it is more economical, it will be in the kitchen of every modern .
progressive woman who is anxious to keep her family happy
and in good health. and yet does not wish to become a fixture
in the kitchen with its consequent limitations.

Here is the comprehensive service manual to all 1959 Frigidaire Refrigerators. This is the year Frigidaire introduced fully frost-free models.

Models included:
SA-9-59, SS-9-59, S-9-59, D-11-59, D-13-59, FD-1 04-59, FI-123-59, FI-122-59, CP-144-59, FP-124-59 and FP-142-59.

"THE WONDERFUL 1959 FRIGIDAIRE REFRIGERATORS

Now with the advent of the wonderful new Frigidaire Frost-Proof Refrigerator-Freezer, a woman's life becomes easier than ever. For the first time she will have no frost to contend with. We hope you all have inspected a Frost-Proof that has been operating during the hot summer months and have seen how free of frost the packages and ice cube trays remain. You have only to see other refrigerators that depend upon push buttons for defrosting- to appreciate how much the absence of any frost means to the homemaker.

In the Frost-Proof:

• All of her frozen packages stay clean and free of frost.
• Labels on the frozen food packages are always clear and legible.
• All space is usable- none taken up by the frost.
• Freezer baskets always roll in and out easily-no tugging to release frosted guides.
• Ice cubes remain free of frost whether in ice trays or in the Ice Server.
• Ice Cream stays free of frost on the surface of the un-used portion- yes, even if Junior leaves the lid ajar.
• Counter-tops and tables stay dry and clean of frost marks or puddles of melted ice formerly left from grids or ice trays or frosty packages.

But the advantage the homemaker appreciates most is the freedom from the messy job of defrosting! Remember that some of the women you talk to may never have experienced the messy job of defrosting a true food freezer-refrigerator. But every woman will have at least some experience with some kind of defrosting."

"No matter how much you've enjoyed cooking in the past, there's even
greater pleasure awaiting you now that you have a new Westinghouse
'Speed Electric Range. It's easier to use and gives you better results than
any range you ever used. And it's easy to clean, too.

No longer need you stand at your range and stir foods as they cook. Nor
will you ever need to worry about baking-you'll get perfect results every
time in your Westinghouse Oven.

There's new accuracy in surface cooking, too. There are marked heats
on the control of each surface unit. But you can "fine-tune" any heat you
want between those settings, so that your favorite dishes come out exactly
as you want them.

This book tells you how to use your Westinghouse Range to get perfect
results. So, please read these instructions carefully, and follow them
faithfully."
