Default Olson TE-209 sine/square generator problem

If the thermistor forms a voltage divider with a fixed resistor, try
increasing the value of that resistor (perhaps 10X or so).


I think it does... One end of the thermistor goes to a cathode of the
6bm8, and there is a resistor that goes from the same cathode to
ground. I'll try increasing that resistor and see what happens...
although I snapped the top off of the 6bm8 the other night while
removing the spring retainer, and I don't have a spare. Bummer!
Guess it'll be a while before I can futz with it again. Thanks for
your help Charles!

Hi Rob, Just replace 0.1uf 600V cap on 6BM8 tube and everything will be fine.
Take care

Especially if done back in May 1, 2003, when Rob's message was dated...
