Amp keeps blowing fuses


Blowing fuses, was caused by many thing.
Short of rectifier,resistor,elco,tube heater,tube pin, and also trafo itself (primary or secondary winding). It must check step by step.
CAUTION :
THIS IS HIGH VOLTAGE AREA.
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK THAT CAN KILL.
DON'T DO THIS IF YOU ARE NOT TECHNICIAN OR NOT FAMILIAR WITH VACUM TUBE CIRCUIT. THE CIRCUIT MAY STILL CONTAINS ELECTRIC SHOCK EVEN IF IF THE AMP IS NOT POWER PLUGGED.


The simple steps (see picture) are:
  1. Disconnect all connection from secondary of power trafo (PLV,PDCH,PACH and PHV).
    Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,trafo is good.
  2. Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    Connect PLV1-PLV2-PLV3 (this are Bias voltage,+/-15VDC and Backlight PCB voltage) to power trafo.Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,PLV circuit is good.If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,7815/7915,resistor) in this PLV circuit.
  3. If step 2 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV circuit stay connected,connect PDCH 1-2 and PACH 1-2 to power trafo. Power ON the amp.
    If fuse is not blowing,PDCH and PACH circuit is good and all tubes heater/filaments are lights after a few seconds.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube heater pins) in this PDCH/PACH circuit.
  4. If step 3 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV,PDCH,PACH circuit stay connected,connect PHV 1-2 to power trafo.
    Power ON the amp. CAUTION: HIGH VOLTAGE AREA is ON.
    If fuse is not blowing,PHV circuit is good.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube pins) in this PHV circuit.

Notes:
  • Steps had to be done sequentially from 1 to 4, not upside down.
  • If tube/heater pin is short,it can't be repair. The tube must be replacing.
  • PDCH circuit is voltage for V1-2-3-4 heater/filaments.
  • PACH circuit is voltage for V5-6-7 heater/filaments.
  • Always replace fuse with same type.

Hello. Where is the fuse located to be replaced in my Kustom KPM4060 Amp. Thanks Shawn.


I have the same problem with my KPM 4080 amp. I have no clue where the fuse goes. I'm sure mine also needs a fuse replaced.

I have an Ibanez TSA15H amp that keeps blowing the F6 fuse. the fuse is a 500mA, but Ibanez told me to change it to a 100mA fuse and that would solve the problem. i did this, and it still blows. also...


This appears to be a common problem with this amp. Putting a smaller fuse will only cause it to blow easier...not sure what Ibanez techs were thinking. Mine blows with 500mA fuse...usually because failing to let it warm up the 30 seconds with standby switch off. I have used .75A-250V fuse and it eliminates the problem. Note: it also defeats the purpose of the fuse and leaves the circuit unprotected....voids warranty/fire risk/ shock risk/world will end, etc. I don't recommend using higher rated fuses but it appears that portion of the circuit draws more than the 1/2 amp fuse can handle.

I have a KPM 4080 mixer that has a blown 1A fuse. What would be the most common cause.


The most common cause of a fuse blowing is excess current... now what has/could cause that is impossible for us to diagnose remotely. Failure in the power amp would be prime suspect with power supply components a close second. Double check that fuse rating... if on 120 volts it sounds low... it would be right for 220 operation.

Amp will not switch on


The internal fuse probably has blown due to an electronic problem. Take it in for repair.

I have a Kustom HV 100 hybrid tube amp. When I power it up, It will play normal for about 5 seconds and then the volume drops off. The preamp tube is only about 2 months old and this amp only gets played...


After the volume drops off, let the unit sit idle for a minute and then try it again. If the volume has restored for another brief period, suspect the filter caps are weak and voltage drops when you start driving the unit. In any case you need to have it serviced. Unless you can see the heater in a tube going out with vibration this may not be a DIY repair. If you see purple glow in a tube, replace it.

Kustom Profile One Blowing Fuses


likely a failure in the power supply or in the final power amp stage. Keep putting fuses in to "cook" out more parts to increase the repair expense... DON'T !!! Take for repair as a fuse isn't going to fix the problem.
