Probably the set up switch. Doubt the tube is burnt unless the set ran that way for a while.

It uses a 6HE5, plus a 6BA11 vert osc. It's also possible that the 87-4? is bad.

I like that set. If it was cheaper or I was not over capacity I'd scoop it up.

Yes, I picked up a Zenith 5311U from Doug (drh4863) last year. Works fairly well after just replacing a few tubes.
