Question about Onkyo M-282 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

ONKYO M282 AMP seems to have lost all mid and low range

I think I blew it out. Heavy usage for about 6 hours, I noticed it was REALLY HOT earlier in the evening. Now, I only get low volume, very high freq range sounds...

Is it salvageable?

It's probably salvagable but I doubt it will be cheap or easy. Most likely you have one or more ruined output transistors. If you're into taking things apart and soldering, it might be easy for you. Just look
for abnormalities on the transistors, usually a little hole in the center of them or blistering. Replace those and you'll either have it back to sounding good or much closer to it. Most output transistors do not fail without showing visual evidence of it.

40 amp. fuse keeps blowing out on 2008 harley


You have a short. Check the insulation on all wiring that carries + voltage - possible that some wire may have lost insulation and is abutting some metal part shorting it out.

It is a french door, items in the fridge part are freezing, what should temperature in freezer and fridge be?


The factory presets your temperatures to the MID / MID setting of 0? for the freezer and 37? for the refrigerator. Refrigerator adjustment range is -15? to +15? in the freezer and 33? to 47? in the refrigerator. Depending on ambient temperatures the temperatures will be + or - 6? the set point. Whenever you make a temperature adjustment, you need to wait 24 hours to notice any temperature difference.

To adjust your temperatures: Adjust controls according to your Use and Care guide. Start out by making sure your settings are at the factory setting of MID / MID. Make only one adjustment: Adjust one control and wait 24 hours before making another adjustment.

To measure temperatures: If you try to measure temperatures, it is important to follow these directions: Fresh Food Section: Put thermometer in a glass of water. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work). Frozen Food Section: Put thermometer between two bags of vegetables. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work).

M282 onkyo amplifier died during a movie. During one of the heavy bass scenes (a thunder storm), the amplifier just died. I verified all of the connections, and they are good. Tried pressing the on off...


If your speakers are not in good condition you may have floated the cones inducing DC feedback into the amplifier, Im not sure if this amp has internal protection fuses, but I would check them and if so replace with same specification fuses. Sometimes we get lucky... Good luck

Keeps blowing the breaker... only 6 months old


This compressor is small however like other brands in this size range draw 13 - 15 amps. Thats quite a bit of power. The compressor has a thermal breaker that will begin to trip if compressor is hot. I am assuming that the breaker that is tripping is the one on the compessor. I have seen many hitachi breakers fail. Easy to replace with generic 20 amp, cost about $10. Before you replace anything, check amp draw with meter, if within specs try to determine what is causing heat.
example:
cycling too many times per hour (check manual for recommended)
low power due to weak circuit or extension cord
using generator for powering compressor (not recommended)
using low quality oil (use synthetic if hot climate)
air leaking from intank checkvalve back to pump
If no reason to overheat then replace breaker on compressor to 20 amp but watch for overheating. Good luck

Hi - I have a Rival Smart-Pot slow cooker and set it all up to cook a stew just this morning. I set it on low for 8 hours. I have just arrived home (earlier then expected) 5 hours later to find the lights...


It could be you lost ac power from the power company during the day (if only for a few seconds).
Did you notice anything else in your house that was affected (VCR, alarm clock,etc.)?

Bose 901 hookup with Onkyo SR 805 and Onkyo M282 amp and 901 EQ/


The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

The Onkyo M-282 stereo amp for the 901's is the perfect solution. Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

**Onkyo SR805 Pre-Out Front >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> Onkyo M-282 IN

Set the Input Level on the back of the Onkyo to MAX. The receiver controls everything just fine after you run through your level setup routine again.

I was looking a the 12v triggers on both units and it looks like you only have a Zone 2 trigger so that wouldn't work for turning on your M-282. I guess you're going to have to turn it on and off the old fashioned way, like I do mine.
