I have a 250 volt 1500 watt Dough Machine. What size of wire I need and how much amperes of fuse I need?


Wire would be .75mm and fuse does not need to be bigger than 10 amps. Make sure your earth is correct, I do not expect it will be double insulated.

Reverse polarity hook up blew fuse link. Where can i get the correct fuse link to solder into the stanley inverter pc809 800watt?


Hmmmmm, well that`s unfortunate , i can tell you that most electronic devices that connect to low voltage DC supply's are protected bye a protection diode and the fuse link you think it might be is a circuit trace internal.
an 800 watt innverter draws about 80 to 100 amp to produce the 800 watt output and you must have 2 40 amp fuses or 3 30 amp fuses customer replaceable, if you did not damage the components in your device all you kneed to do is to repair the circuit trace and replace the reverse polarity protection diode to restore normal operation

there are no fuse links internal to inverter power supply's

best regards Falco

Amp blows fuses


Are you using the correct fuse? if so,
more then likely, you don't have a good ground. Try grounding to something else that has more direct connection to your frame. If that doesnt work, try getting larger power cables.
I had the same problem with my 2500w xplodes all I had to do was get a thicker cable for the ground and battery connection. What was happening, was it was needing more power then the wire and fuse could handle, so it would blow the fuse, since the higher you have it, the more power it needs to feed the watts.
I would try grounding it directly to the frame on a good part of the frame before spending another $70 on new power cables though.

I Hooked up a Performance Teknique 1200 watt 2 channel amp to my 2 12" comp kickers. and before doing all this i took out the fuse. from my car battery. after everything was hooked up i put the fuse back...


disconnect the amp and then put the fuse in.if it blows,there is a pinched wire causing a short.
Also,big amplifiers like that have to be wired battery direct.
the surge current at boot up can pull 100 amps for 10 millisec.

Inverter shut off and turn back on..


Sounds like one of two things are happening:

1. Microwave is drawing too much current, causing internal voltage monitoring circuitry in inveter to go into protection mode.

or

2. RFI from microwave is somehow being few into inverter causing similar circumstance.

Audio system set up


Well one problem is you might need a smaller amp depending on how many speakers you have, 1200 watts is way overpowering for 300watt max speakers and could possibly blow them and even catch them on fire!!!! But everything else is compatable because all of your epuipment is of a newer products but if you dont have 4 guage wires or anything else make sure you get them heres a list: 4 gauge wires for power and ground, REM wire "blue is the normal color" RCA jacks, A compacitor, fuse for battery to amp to keep system from blowing up, 8 gauge speaker wire or even 12 guage to hook up from the amp to the speakers, That should be the common things you need to have a good thumpin system!!!!

Car amp blows 12 volt wire fuse


the wire from your battery is blowing fuses? and you are using 20-30 A fuses? mine has a 100A fuse..look into getting new wire plus my wire is 4 gauge.., 1600 watts is too powerful for a 12 g wire and a 30 A fuse

Confused


Hi jimmyjames,

 

How do you have the wires hooked from the sony reciever to the inputs on the mtx? 

 Sounds like your Remote wire is way too big. it should be 14 guage.  It only sends a low voltage low amp signal.

 

Another thing that could be messing up the sounds is the routing of the wires.  you should have the power supply wires separate from the Audiop signal wiring.  Power should run down the Driver side and Audio down the passenger side.

 

When you answer I may be able to tell you more.

Amp not working correctly goes into protection


Disconnect the speaker wires from the amplifier and see if it still goes into protection mode. If it still goes into protect with the speakers disconnected, there's a problem with the amp; if not, you may have a blown speaker or a shorted speaker wire.
