Fender Hot Rod Deville 212 - popped and died

Hi,

I have just bought a new Hot Rod Deville (April 09) and played 1 practice session with it. I am new to valve/tube amps but it did seem to be quite hot with a smell to match if that maes sense. All was ok til the end of the night when I put it on standby, packed up my gear, flicked the off switch on the amp and then.....

it popped....

and died!! ;0(

After that it wouldnt power up at all and would not switch on?

I am new to these as I say, anyone else ever see this?

Thanks,

Phil

This may sound stupid, but did you check the fuse?

Fender Hot Rod Deville 212 sounds ok then LOUD HUM


On mine, the guitar input jacks get tarnished and causes all kind of interference and noise. Take a Q-Tip soaked with WD-40, run in down into the jack and brush up and down. Don't overlook the filter caps as they are a common cause of noise. You need a capacitor checker (the older tube type) to thourghly check those out.

I Just bought a brand new Fender Hot Rod Deville 2x12. I get no sound when i turn it on. I can hear the hum of the speaker, everything lite up, including the two 6L6 tubes. When i plug into the jack, i...


If it is new then something is a bit strange to say the least. Turn all the knobs to midpoint. If it is going to click/pop then you will definitely hear it. Switch to standby, then power to on for a minute then standby to on. You should then see the 6l6 and the 3x 12AX7's all glowing. Plug into each channel. Don;t use a pedal to try any of this. If you get a pop on on ch then it can be one side of the preamp either a tube or one of the op amps on the board.

Make sure you try out the cable/guitar on a different amp to make sure it is working. Could be a cable or plug that is the problem.

Honestly if this is new I'd haul it back to the store and return it. It should just work with no hassles. Once you know your guitar/cable is not the cause then I would take it back and get them to either set it up or replace it. Something is just not right here for a brand new amp.

Fender hot rod deville 212 111. On the 2nd and 3rd distortion chanels the noise coming out of the speaker is very loud. Is this normal? Hard to play through the noise.


Hi. If the volume and drive levels are considerably low but you still hear a noise, you may want to consider trying a different guitar cable. The noise may be coming from a ground loop which is being amplified and overdriven by the amp itseld. I hope this helps. :-)

How do I replace a fender 2 x 2 deville pilot light? CL


You unscrew the plastic dome over the bulb. The bukb is a bayonet base. Push in and turn... probably counterclockwise and extract the bulb. Replace by reversing the process.

Use T47 or #47 (6 volt) lamp... available at Radio SHack and other places.

My Fender Blues Deville (2-12)amp after heating up will cut out totally and then pop back in..thanks Mike


IF you can get the thing to fail while out of the case, the quickest way to find a thermal failure is with circuit cooler spray. Unless you are adept at electronics, this is probably NOT a DIY project.

The nature of your symptoms SUGGEST probably a bad solder joint or a cracked circuit board.

OFTEN the bad solder is around HEAVY components or POTENTIOMETER leads, especially where they support the board by those leads (dumb!)

A trained eye can spot bad soldering around a lead... you look for a tiny gray line around the lead part way up the meniscus of the solder fillet... see one, reheat the joint with a soldering iron.

Deville 212 overdrive channel making Loud humming noise


It sounds like a filter capacitor(s) has failed. The electrolytic caps dry out and cease to perform allowing unfiltered power to reach the preamp sections and get amplified.

Being this is tube with high voltages, an experienced person should work on it due to shock danger.

I assume you checked the tubes for shorts as well as emission since a heater to cathode short could cause this as well.

No volume.


Are the tubes bad? Do they light up? Check the tubes and install replacements if necessary. If it's a preamp tube that went bad, just replace that one tube. If a power tube went bad then replace the set of power tubes. Be sure to get a matched set when replacing power tubes, and to bias them.
