Question about Kenwood KAC-8401 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

Fan still running, no blue light, no sound

The amp worked fine for about 2 years, then one day the sound shut off out of nowhere, and with the sound the blue light shut off. Then the light and sound would come back on for awhile and then shut off again. This occured randomly for about a month. Now the sound is never on and neither is the blue light. When i start the car up the fan in the amp runs as i can feel the air if i put my hand over the fan. I have already tried unplugging everything and letting the power drain out and plugging it back in. This did nothing (Kenwood Tech support told me to do that). Is there anything else i can do before taking the amp to a repair shop?

    The advice was helpful. I would like to know if there is an estimate on how much a repair shop might charge for a fix like this.

    Do you know how much a repair like that might cost?

You will definitely need to have it repaired. It sounds like the overload protection kicking in to prevent further damage. If you need any assistance locating a repair facility please let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,

Hp pavilion modelp6510f press power switch on top of pc does not light computer fans blow but compute does not turn on


ok th p6000. complete range when they were made had to be recalled as they put the copper expansion pipes ran across the gpu & cpu hence a massive overheat problem. they put copper shims over the cpu & gpu but this worked for a short time but it was inevitable and both units ended up being cooked i had this problem with mine. so if you have tried external monitor with no images it would sound or more likely to be the gpu cooked sorry for the bad news.

I have a JVM1850 that was installed 4 years ago. The unit was working fine, then a day ago I received an error display requesting a charcoal filet replacement. No filter is needed since it is vented...


I have a JVM1850 White microwave-over the oven-installed 3 years ago. Last evening the unit would not turn off. The inside light and fan continued to run, however, the microwave was not working.

All the controls and functions seem to operate, but when completed, the unit remained working, as stated above, with the door opened or closed.

Outside a/c fan quits but compresser still runs


it sounds like the fan is over amping itself and shutting down on thermal overload check the amp draw during running time and compare it to the sticker on the outside panel it should be running .9 amps, and it will over heat if it runs around 1.2 amps or above

Amplifier keeps running overcurrent


sounds to me like you are overheating the amp, try down tuning the peak level of the amp, and also if there is anything around the amp clear it away, check if the fan is turning on, you may need to replace it,
