The Kenwood 600 is a difficult amplifier to work on. It goes together and comes apart in very specific order, and you cannot easily pick and choose the section you want to work on.
This was the first Kenwood 600 I had worked on and if I do another one, I will go about it a bit differently. First, if a full strip down is planned, the first thing I would do is pull the transformers. I did not do this until later in the project and once I had them out, I realized it would have made life a lot easier had I done this earlier.
Here, the front-end is disassembled, the unit is set on its side and covered to protect it from over spray and splatter from the solutions used to service and clean the boards and switches.
Note the access holes drilled in the sealed volume pot (right) and push button switches (below) for the application of contact cleaner. I have used this technique for many years with success. I have read the debates on many forums on this. I have never had an issue doing this and I am going stick with what I know works.
After servicing the switches and pots, a new power indicator lamp is installed and all the caps are replaced with high quality audio caps.
