SOURCE: Receiver fuse continuosly blows when replaced and powered up

When a fuse blows it indicates that too much current is flowing. This melts the wire in the fuse.

What is actually damaged is hard to say, remove all the cables and test. If the fuse still blows take the unit in for service.

I doubt that a resistor has died, more likely something has created a direct short. It could be a power supply issue, or an issue with the amplifiers.

Ask for a quote first if it is out of Warranty.

SOURCE: Kenwood KR-A4070 blowing 5a 125v fuses

I am guessing that the ceramic resistor is close to the output transistors. I would also guess that one or more of the output transistors has shorted. This causes a high current draw that is blowing the fuse. You could also have a power supply problem. The ceramic resistor is a .22ohm dual emitter resistor that is used in the output stage. The transistors located close by are probably shorted and should be replaced. Start there and let us know what happens once the transistors and the resistor are changed.

I would say the blown fuse was definitely "a" problem but not necessarily THE problem. Something caused the fuse to blow and it is likely with the belt drive system as the lift was still working. Look for burned or shorted places on the PCB and check the motor. You will definitely need another fuse - get 3 or 4!

My brush stop working


Barring any electrical failure or loose plug the most common cause for the vacuum brush to stop turning is belt clogged with debris or string.
Unplug the unit and check the brush for string or debris (Hair) wrapped around the pully on either end. Clear this and check the belt to make sure it has not broken, stripped or simply slipped off. Usually the bottom plate is held on with just a few screws. Easy to remove and check Belt slipped off or stripped replace. Belt slipped off you can sometimes put back on and be vacuuming in no time.
Anything wrapped around the spindle a pair of needle nose pliers comes in real handy here. If you have snagged a rug, sheet or sock etc.. check the manual for a reset button. Some vacuums have this and all it takes is clearing the chute then resetting the switch. Good luck hope this helps!

Hi William, I'm glad to help!

William, after working in the automotive field for over 40 years I can tell you that most electrical problems that occur after someone has installed a stereo system comes from a fuse blown somewhere in the system. Take a test light and check all the fuses first if you find one blown replace it and see if everything starts working again. If everything starts working again then your fine, BUT, if its still not working then don't stop there because more then one fuse may have been blown keep going until all fuses have been checked. Hope this helps and have an awesome day William.

The drum belt may have slipped off the idler pulley. On some dryer models, if the belt loses tension, there is a drum safety switch that disables the drive motor. This is known as a broken belt switch. This prevents the belt from wrapping around the drive motor shaft and possibly damaging the motor in the event of a belt snapping. If you post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER, I may be able to assist you with determining whether or not you have a belt problem. The model number is usually located on a nameplate around the door opening, or on the back of the operator control panel. I hope this helps you.

Dryer has power. control lights working. when you press the start button the only sound is a humming noise. will not start.


Check your drive belt which is located around the outside of the drum. The "hummmm" you hear sounds like the motor running. Normaly this motor provides the power to the belt which surrounds the outer surface of the drum (where u put the cloths)........ the belt wraps around the outside of the drum, then around a small pully mounted on the shaft of an electrical motor normally located just below the drum on the inside of the outer enclosure. This motor will be mounted to the the dryer's frame by a mounting plate. This motor mounting plate will pivot (like a hinge)..... it will also have an extension spring hooked to it which provides tension to the drive belt when properly looped around the pulley on the drive motor. When the belt breaks or snaps....... the drum stops spinning..... however the drive motor still runs. Thats the noise you hear! Diss-assemble outer sheet metal providing access to drive belt and replace with correct belt recommended for your model dryer. Caution should be used during repair........ ALWAYS UNPLUG POWER CORD PRIOR TO SERVICING ALL/ANY APPLIANCE's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a black and decker BR300 that I've had the same problem with.I don't know if yours is caused by the same things but what I found was that the vacumn system on mine was not sealed up good enough and too much dust was getting around motor cooling fins. Unfortunatly on mine by the time I figured this out it had frayed the drive belt which caused some small strands to wrap around drive gears and mostly trashed the motor. Hope this is of some help to you. Thanks

I have a Crosley CR248 cd record player/recorder stopped working


If nothing lights up and the whole unit is dead, you may have a blown fuse, a bad power supply, or an electrical outlet that is not giving you power. (Don't laugh, it has happened to all of us... the "broken" thing wasn't plugged in or the outlet it was plugged into was off for some reason). Anyway, if the thing lights up and everything else in the system works except the turntable going 'round, perhaps there is a slipped or broken belt. Most late-model Crosley turntables have been belt drive, so the first thing to look at if everything else works is to press the buttons to start the record playing and then turn the record gently around with your finger on the label, making the whole platter turn clockwise when looking down at the record. Mechanically, the tonearm should cue up and pivot in to the record and it should gently drop onto the record. If you cue the tonearm up and move it in to the end of the last song on the LP and let it back down and turn the record again, it should follow the record's grooves into the center of the record and then lift and "park" the tonearm after everything is done. During the time the needle is on the record and you are turning the record, you should hear the record playing (it will sound bad, because you won't be turning at the right speed!), but that should indicate that the turntable is working mechanically and electrically.
If everything works like I mentioned except the record player won't make the record turn, the next step is to see why it isn't turning. you'll need to lift the plastic platter off the turntable. Most of these have a snap ring (usually a simple spring wire ring that doesn't go all the way around the center spindle. It may have an E-ring instead. Use a small screwdriver to pop this off and be sure to catch it, it might try to pop off the turntable and fly across the room! Lift the platter and you'll probably find a broken belt underneath. You'll have to replace that to make the records spin again. The hardest part is to locate a replacement belt! If nobody near you stocks belts (lol) then online outfits like LPGear.com can be a source. After you replace the belt and put the platter back on the player, remember to replace the snap ring. You might want to lubricate the platter's bearing with an appropriate lubricant, but that is your call as to whether that will be necessary. This is likely a styrene or simple thermoplastic plastic bearing, so be real careful what you use for a lubricant! if you're not sure, don't use anything! Like I said, it's not a difficult repair, it's just hard to find the part these days! Good Luck!

Blower motor


Strip fuse is blown should be by the driver side strut mount in a tootsie roll shape snap box. Or its the blower motor regulator which is under the blower motor.
