Hi, my Krell KSA 150amp is running cool any suggestions as to why. Many thanks

Amp has been running cooler for a while, then got really hot now even after running it for a few hours it doesn't even get luke warm, I've read somewhere it could be capacitors drying out could this be true ?

Hi Ingemar... sorry for the delay getting back to you. It sounds like you may have a problem with transformer connections, or maybe orientation of a bridge rectifier. Check all connections in the power supply with particular attention to these. Check also that th3e caps are fitted the correct way around. Look also for hairline fractures in the PCB about the power supply. I am trying to find a circuit for your model at the mo. Not having much luck...do you have one you can link me to or upload to FixYa? Would get me on the same page as you to really get into the problem.

regards
Graeme

You will need to use the pre-outs on the receiver to hook up your amplifier. I am trying to verify if that model even has pre-outs for the front channels, many do. You will be able to tell quicker than I can by just looking for outputs labeled pre-out for the front channels. Just use the cables you have to attach the Krell amp to those pre-outs and you will be good to go. Let me know if you are unable to locate them... the receiver may not be designed to do that..

Where can I get a fuse for my Krell KSA 300 amplifier.I had a blown fuse on the left channel.


Fuses rarely go on their own. The cause is likely to be a shorted semiconductor device in the left channel output.
Fuses are generally not specific to any brand. Is the fuse a tube with metal ends? If it is measure the length in MM. Then look at the end and you should see the rating. Either in A for Amps or MA for milliamps.
Any electronic parts supplier should have the one you want in stock. Buy several, for if the part I mentioned has gone, it will blow again.

Not colling


Check the back to see if the compressor is running or just really hot. If it is not running it could be a thermostat issue, but if it is hot and not running, that means your compressor has problems and will need to be replaced.

My transmission line that connects to the radiator


The easiest fix is to get a transmission fluid cooler & use it to replace the fan connection completely. Basically you'll just shorten your lines a bit to clamp a hose over them & connect both lines to the 2 lines on the cooler. the cooler installs onto the front of the radiator with push through connectors that makes it easy to install & it will provide you even better trans. cooling in the warm months.

I have seen people use just a hose to connect the 2 lines & not have any problem in the cooler months but you really do need the trans fluid cooled during the warmer months to prevent trans damage.

check you fluid & top it off properly after making the repair!

Good Luck

Suitable CPU air cooler


I suppose you have done your homework as to if u really *need* to buy a new cooler. Is ur CPU getting HOT? what temperatures does it run at? Your choice of cooler depends on what you plan to do with it. Do you plan to overclock your system? I would suggest a Coolermaster stock copper cooling system. Zalman is also good but expensive. But as i said depends on what u wanna do with the system and if u really need that extra cooling if you dont plan to overclock your system.
