Hello dancisbrown,

If you or someone you know is relatively skilled at soldering, you should be able to replace the MOSFET. The problem may be in determining a suitable replacement. First get the data off of the blown component and then go here to the MOSFET cross-reference guide.

After you have found a replacement, go here to purchase the new one.

You might want to consider replacing all 4 while you have the board out.

Hope this helps.

Powerware5115 will not switch on

A weak or dead battery pack its the main reason of a unresponsive/good health UPS, but never forget to test the electric cord, the fuse and the protective relay.first, this sounds too simple, but thats a common fault.

Battery pack must have at least 5 volts with half amp of current to power up the UPS internal relays, giving electric power to the main switch.

To rise the 12/24 DC volts to 115/120 AC volts, the UPS uses some electronic components (semiconductors) called MOSFETS , and sometimes, blown (browned) MOSFETS on the electric board are the most desastrous cause of a unresponsive (completely dead) or faulty UPS. (I remember that some time ago I see a TRIPP LITE SMART 1500LCD UPS with twelve blown MOSFETS, when happened, that kind of fault must be saw like a little volcano!).

If you know how to take all the safety electric measures, and how to use a portable voltmeter, you can test the voltage/amperage on the battery pack, the electric cord and the replaceable fuse (if has any). Basic and intermediate electronic knowledge is necessary to test MOSFETS and other electronic components on the circuit board.

My ups is overloaded for first time. can it be fixed

yes it can be fix. try to open your UPS and see if power mosfet are blown, replace the power mosfet and check other component around it. or you can bring it to any authorized APC service center

Amp is in protect mode

If you have'nt fixed your amp by now I thought I'd tell ya a couple of things why it's going into protect. The basics. Blown subs, bad power suply or mosfets, and blown output transistors/mosfets. Still need help let me know. I repair amps for a living and i'm the cheapest you'll find and honest. I also give the longest warranty. I'm tired of other people rippin people off on repairs. Let me know.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Just got a used Snap on Plasma25. Put new Tip and elctode in it. Worked great for a few cuts then the Red Light on front of the machine came on and now wont do anything?? I dont have the manual so I dont...

I am not familiar with the guts of a snap on 25 amp plasma, but i have extensive experiance repairing inverter based cutters. 2 common problems which would cause this type of malfunction is the thermal protection circuitry, and mosfet failure. The first is easier to check and is the likely culprit. If the unit is Mosfet based, and i suspect it is, located on the aluminum heat sink the mosfets are mounted to, is a button sized device with 2 wires coming out of it. This is a normally closed switch with bi-metallic contact points inside. When it gets hot, the switch opens, and shuts down the output of the machine untill it cools off again. Many times, these arms dont quite return to their normal closed position if you exceed the duty cycle often. unplug the wires from this switch and check for continuity, if its open, you can temporarily bypass this by running a jumper across the terminals on the switch. If this gets your machine running, i advise you to replace the switch, dont operate it with the jumper in place...... If this isnt the problem, the feed back circuitry driving the mosfets is more than likely detecting a shorted mosfet. A 25 amp machine may have 9 mosfets, paired off in sets of 3, which handle abt 3 amps apiece.....chances are all 3 would have blown if there was a failure, check for obvious damage, a blown mosfet in most instances can be detected visually as 9 times out of 10, they this helps, good luck

+5 volt mosfet 40t30h is blown out and near by mosfet p3055ld is also shorted ijust replace both with 55n06 is it working?

Try for your self to know that it is really working. Take the risk. But if you know that it is the right thing you replace then it will work.

Same thing.


If you have the 2 blown capacitors on the power board then most likely yo also have blown MOSFETs and a blown fuse. The MOSFETS and fuse blow when the capacitors short out when they blow. We sell a kit with the capacitors, MOSFETs and fuse with instructions for $10.00 plus shipping. Let me know if you need a repair kit.

Blown something found the problem just need to solve it !

Those black things are likely the MOSFET transistors (the bits that provide the amplification). They likely look similar to these.

Your problem may be deeper than just these units being blown - especially since there are 6 that are gone. Have you been overdriving the amp? Using speakers with the wrong impedence?

Anyway, you can try to see if they have the service manual. You could also try to source new mosfets from online retailers (eg digikey, - just read the numbers printed on them. You may also want to try to determine why they blew in the first place. I have fixed amps where one or two have gone bad because of being overdriven, but 6 makes me think that something else is wrong. Unless the am has a number of MOSFETs serving each channel. Eg, 3 MOSFETS per channel on a 2 channel amp..

Blown car amp repair (Lanzar Opti 150 stereo bridgeable car amp)

its better to change them all. than to change 1 or 2 mosfets, bcuz simetimes it affects the other mosfets. and please check your speaker or maybe there is an resistor, capacitors, or a relay malfunctioning in that area.
