Its probably a GMA fuse. Its value should be on the circuit board and on the old fuse. You can get replacements at Radio Shack or your local hardware store. Just make sure it is NOT a slow blow fuse. in most cases the fuse opens due to a problem with the receiver either in the power supply or more likely in the output circuit.

A slow-blow fuse takes a couple of seconds to open and in that time more damage will be done.

Bose sa3 amp, blew a fuse in it, replaced it and now it won't power up. Nice little amp, would like to find out how to test out what is wrong and fix it

If you can,check with your multimeter to see if the two voltage rectifiers are good.If they are OK,you may need to replace the 2 audio amplifiers.This will require proper tools and good experience.

I have a old aiwa stack system / separates and theres something wrong with the amplifier,the lights dont come on

This can be caused by several things; something as simple as a blown internal fuse or it can be a combination of a failed output module + the fuse which blew because of it. Also, there are components in the power supply that can degrade over time (capacitors) and if a system has been unused for an extended period, these can lose their polarity and fail internally because of this. At a minimum, to do even the most basic troubleshooting, you would need a multimeter (mostly digital available today) and some electronic knowledge.
If you have had a number of years of service, you may be better off replacing your Aiwa at this time since the skills for this kind of repair are becoming hard to find and pretty expensive. Most of us techs are retired due to the low replacement cost of most entertainment electronic devices. If you know a 'ham' radio operator, they may have adequate experience to give you a free assessment.

Have you used 2A SLOW BLOW fuse? This type of fuses usually are ceramic type and are very different with the glass type ones. The glass type fuses are (more or less) fast blow. Although the best solution is to find SLOW BLOW fuses like this, in case it's very difficult you can use 3A fast blow fuse also.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Blows main fuse when power is turned on

Shorted power supply/module is most likely problem.

Blown subwoofer

1400 is PEAK power. not to be mistaken with RMS. 1400W in SHORT bursts.
RMS on them is 500-600W.
Your amplifier gain may be improperly set. How big is the enclosure and what amplifier are you using. All of these things will play a factor in answering your question. Dont expect a $400 experience from $100 subs.
