Why does my Line 6 Spider 3 15w amp randomly go to flange?

Provided that you're not using any external devices, and plugging the guitar directly into the amp, this sound solely like an internal switching problem. Meaning...it will require service. Chips can get faulty like that sometimes. If you're using any external pedals, remove them and see if it happens. If not...the pedal(s) are to blame.

Check their site here under Support:http://line6.com/community/message/59307 if you do not feel comfortable servicing it yourself. They will be able to tell you where the nearest service center is and if you can't get it to one then the specs for the pot. Any good electronics supplier should be able to sell or order you the exact replacement you need. The trick is providing them with the technical info they need. If you or a friend or a nearby reputable electronics service perso can disassemble the amp and unsolder the broken pot from the circuit board it is quite easy to take it to a supplier and have them match it.

Protective circuits kicking in. You may be overdriving the preamp to a clipping condition the amp sees as a problem. If it is under warranty, contact Line 6 and see if this is normal for this amp. It should not be, but you never can be sure.

When I play my Line 6 Spider III Amp (Stack), the volume and gain output is very weak even though the settings are maxed, and the tone is very strained and sharp. It basically lost all of it's kick.


Poor contacts at jacks can cause this... it results in the contacts acting like a small capacitor passing only the high frequencies at very low level.

Power amp inout jacks are notorious with switch contacts that pass the preamp signal to the power amp if the power amp input isn't used.

There are many other possibilities and only hands on troubleshooting will determine the cause.

There is likely a switch contact on the headphone jack that routes the amp output to the speaker. These jacks on most music stuff are JUNK and the contact may not be closing.

If the spring contact is bent so it won't close you can bend it to contact BUT the springyness usually is gone and the contact will be marginal.

Line 6 has the manuals on their site.

The Spider III 15 is in two parts: part 1 and part 2
The first is the manual, the second is the sample settings.

Both are PDF files.

High pitched squeal when the input jack is used.


Sounds like your master volume is turned up too much. The channel volume will make the squealing go away(caused by high gain and humbuckers). The best thing to do is dial in your favorite presets and change the channel volume to the correct level with the master volume where you usually keep it. I use my Spider Valve at master volume at about noon and the channel volume between nine o'clock and noon. Let me know if this does not solve the problem......
