SUBJECT:

Adding diode to circuit after replacing voltage stabilizer

If the voltage stabilizer fails, add a 1N4006 diode (obtained locally) to the circuit when installing the new stabilizer.

^

solder diode lead (next to identification ring) to middle terminal (ground) of new voltage stabilizer

^

crimp 4 mm ring terminal to a 3-inch long 18-gauge wire

^

solder end of wire to other end of diode

^

cover wire and diode with an insulating sleeve

^

install voltage stabilizer but DO NOT connect center terminal of stabilizer to printed circuit foil
