The tuner does not work. The band is broken, the radio works.
Where can I get this part and needles for the record player?
Does anyone have step by step instructions on how to replace the turner band?

Thank you,
Diana

I think you are speaking of the dial cord string? You need to get a copy of SAMS Photofact 1083-3. In that you will get the diagram. Google for dial cord sources. Also, the needle depends on which changer is installed. Once you determine that check E-bay or other sources. Voice-of-Music is also a good site to check.

Here is the dial cord diagram for the Admiral KS-45.

I've never re-strung a radio, so you might
go to the radio section of the forum, if
you need assistance.

Save the old cord. That is your gauge for the length.

I get the cord wrapped and arranged, one end tied to the spring. Sometimes you need bits of tape to hold loose sections. The spring is closed, not stretched. Judge where the knot will be, minus the increased length of the stretched part.
The dial pointer is positioned at the low end of the dial, tuning cap closed.
*Unhook the spring from the pulley and tie the second end of string to it at the right length.*
Rehook the spring and stretching it, flip the cord over the rim of the pulley.
