    • Here you can see the cause of the malfunction: the white separating agent between the plates of the capacitor has dried out. It must be removed. The lower plates are for FM, the upper ones for medium wave. The upper ones will not be needed later.

    • Slowly and patiently remove all the innards of the variable capacitor. A toothpick is good for this.

    • On the shaft are rotating rotors, fixed stators and washers. Other very small washers are on the upright posts

    • You don't need to sort the parts, that will come. But be careful not to lose or damage any of the very small parts.

  13. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Necessary stators: 13 단계, 이미지 1/2 Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Necessary stators: 13 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • There are four different types of stators. The two shown here are still needed. They can be recognized by the long indentation at the "back" (marked red):

    • 2 pieces type 1

    • 2 pieces type 2

  14. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Unnecessary stators: 14 단계, 이미지 1/2 Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Unnecessary stators: 14 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • The two shown here are for AM and will be omitted in the future:

    • 2 pieces type 3 with T-shaped eyelet on the right side

    • 4 pieces type 4 with short indentation at the back

  15. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Washers: 15 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Here are the various washers:

    • 10 pieces of brass

    • One thicker brass washer

    • various silver ones

    • some very small silver ones from the posts

    • the oval washer is not needed anymore

  16. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Necessary rotors: 16 단계, 이미지 1/2 Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Necessary rotors: 16 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • And here are the rotors. Only the type of which there are six is needed, the others are omitted.

  17. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Cleaning: 17 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Now comes the cleaning work:

    • Push out the shaft. Clean the shaft and its contact ring (marked red) on the lower part of the condenser well with isopropyl alcohol, scrape off any corrosion.

    • Reinsert the shaft. The stop must be on the far right.

    • Clean the four required stators (type 1 and type 2), the six rotors and all disks well with isopropyl alcohol. Use a lint-free cotton swab for this purpose.

  18. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Assembly block 1: 18 단계, 이미지 1/2 Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Assembly block 1: 18 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • The assembly follows, work very carefully with toothpick and tweezers, do not damage the parts!

    • Place the capacitor as shown in picture 1. Start with a rotor.

    • ... then a brass washer

    • Next is a stator of type 2

    • ...a rotor

    • ...and a brass washer

    • one of the tiny washers is put on the post.

  19. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Assembly block 2: 19 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • And again:

    • Rotor

    • Brass washer

    • Stator type 2

    • Rotor

    • Silver disc

    • Then turn the capacitor 180°.

  20. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Assembly block 3 and 4: 20 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Next is the next rotor, this one and the two remaining are twisted 180° against the first three rotors.

    • then a stator type 1, the stators are also twisted by 180°, then the brass disc

    • tiny disc on post

    • rotor, brass disk

    • stator type 1

    • rotor

    • thick brass disc to finish

  21. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Install spacers: 21 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Press the shaft down again.

    • The washers for the AM tuning are no longer installed and are replaced by three washers and two snap rings of size M3. Then tighten the axle nut again. Reminder: Left-hand thread so counterclockwise. Do not tighten the nut too much, light tension is enough.

    • Fill the remaining washers on the two marked items

  22. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Install the upper part: 22 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Put the small washer that was between the top of the condenser and the axle (see step 5) back on the axle. Oil it very lightly.

    • Carefully replace the top of the condenser. Check if the axle can be turned. Then screw the four small nuts back on, but not too tight. Always check if the axle with the rotors turns freely, maybe you have to put more spacers on the posts.

    • Put a small solder dot on the wire between the upper and lower part.

    • Replace the protective cap.

  23. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Function test: 23 단계, 이미지 1/2 Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Function test: 23 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • Now you have to test and adjust. Caution: the mains cable is well insulated, but always remember!

    • Make all connections between front and rear panel correctly.

    • Switch the unit to FM - you should hear at least a slight hiss. Remember the switch for the antenna on the back, an external one works better in case of doubt.

    • Adjust the variable capacitor until - hopefully - the first station can be heard - and be happy! The most important part is done.

    • Disconnect the connections again.

  24. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Soldering the shields: 24 단계, 이미지 1/2 Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Soldering the shields: 24 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • Solder the two shields again, a few solder points are sufficient.

    • Put the tuner board on and fix it with the three screws. Play a bit with the adjustment knob until the coupling fits.

    • ...and connect the parts again, this time for the adjustment work.

  25. Tivoli One Variable capacitor Repair, Settings and assembly: 25 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • The dial marked F controls the frequency. Set the dial to the frequency of a known station at about 100 MHz, use a second radio and adjust until the desired station can be heard clearly on both radios.

    • Set a weaker station at about 100 MHz and adjust with A to best volume.

    • This potentiometer allows you to adjust the LED transmitter setting to the optimum level. Set a strong transmitter and adjust the yellow LED to highest brightness.

    • Disconnect the connections between front and back part for the last time.

    • First push the front part completely into the housing, then the back part not completely.

    • Re-establish the connections and tighten the unit with the six housing screws.

I see that they sell Varicon capacitors for Tivoli on eBay. Maybe worth desoldering and replacing instead.
