Dave , If that fuse is blowing , there is a problem in the power supply or output section. If you have a meter that can test diodes / transistors. please check the output transistors first. Most likely one or more are shorted. If they check ok , you should check the power supply diodes .You can order new ones from a number of online stores by simply putting the part number into google. Hope this helps ?

SOURCE: The main transformer in my Sherwood amplifier is

I would contact Sherwood as Transformers are deemed to be safety components and should be replaced with excat parts or those recommended by the maker.

I need a transformer for my resolv 65a monitor


Are you an experienced tech? In most cases (unless there is a defect in manufacturing) transformers are not a common cause for failure. If it blows the fuse disconnect the secondaries and see if it still blows the fuse. If it does then the transformer is likely the cause, if the fuse doesn't blow then the problem is elsewhere. If you have 120vac at the primary and nothing(or very low) at the secondary(s) then the transformer could also be at fault. If you have done this already and narrowed it down to the transformer, sorry I cannot help. I used service Samson but no longer am able to get parts. Good luck!

Conventional power pack


A primary and secondary usually refers to a transformer. The primary side being the input side 110 AC Volt or 220 Volt AC side. Also called Source.
The Secondary being the "output to load" side 12 Volts "for example". And also called Tap (Secondary Tap)

The voltage is changed by conduction, magnetic flux, neither side touching one another. And the number of turns of wire, per side, determine the voltage. The voltage may either be a step-down or Step-up depending on its use.
An unconventional method is to have both the primary & secondary combined into a single tapped winding - which arrangement is called an autotransformer. The autotransformer does not provide isolation between primary and secondary circuits but its simplicity makes it economical and space-saving.
Imagine a single wire wrapped from the top to the bottom being the primary, and tapping in. in the middle and bottom for the secondary, so the output becomes 1/2. That would be a step-down transformer.

The actual measurement of a transformer is measured by its efficiency (Faraday Law) which is defined as a ratio of power. I hope that's sufficient, but if you want more I would buy for $2 bucks an Electricity Made Simple Book, because there are pages after pages to write about transformers, and to understand electricity in general it is helpful to understand the difference between alternating current and direct current and its magnetic field of induction and magnitude of emf.

How to test for bad transformer


  1. To test a transformer you need to know what type of transformer it is first. There is a step up transformer which steps the voltage up and a step down transformer which steps the voltage down.
  2. You will still test the transformers the same way for step up and step down transformers. If it is a step up transformer apply the incoming power to the transformer or plug it up. Now take your multimeter and place it on the AC volt scale and test the voltage if the voltage on the data plate says the transformer should step up to 220 volts and it doesn't then your transformer is bad.
  3. Now repeat the same steps for a step down transformer. Plug up the incoming or primary power and test voltage on the outcoming or secondary side the voltage should step down to the proper value. If you don't read any voltage on the secondary or outgoing side then the transformer is bad.
  4. To read the voltage place the two meter leads on the secondary side, or the side you will plug your equipment into. If the secondary side is an outlet then place the two meter leads into the top two slots in the plug and read voltage. You also want to make sure the incoming power is working as well. Otherwise you will be reading a bad reading every time.

I have a LG LRE30453SW Electric Range and the relay pcb keeps going bad. I get an F7 error when starting the oven. The first time I noticed the black line in, from the power terminal, to the relay pcb was...


First, check the 220v line and breakers are properly grounded and that you are getting a constant 220v at the plug. Then you will need to check the transformer on the unit.To test a transformer you need to know what type of transformer it is first. There is a step up transformer which steps the voltage up and a step down transformer which steps the voltage down.

If all that looks good, then you will need to replace the control board. Here is a link to the parts for your range.

I have 3 transformers 240\480 wired for 480 delta, 1000kva total, step down, 13kv\480 delta, im getting high voltage on across 2 legs, at 505 volts. is one transformer going bad?


It's possible the transformer is bad, but maybe a primary fuse or switch is out on the 13kV side. Check the secondary connections into the delta at the transformer. Good luck!

Blows ac fuse on turn on even when totally disconnected from everything


Hi:
This is probably due to an short in the primary section of the power supply, check the bridge rectifier and or diodes on the primary side of the transformer, the primary side of the power supply is the side nearest to the AC cord.

Getting f3 mag current reading


f 3 means blown fuse , which is located on the right side of the unit at the bottom , third one accross, once you have tested the fuse and found it to be faulty, before replacing it , you have to find out why it has failed, there are several reasons why this has happen , 1/ if primary and secondary interlocking door microswitches on left side panel open before monitor door switch on the other side ,it will put a short accross L1 AND L2 blowing F3 fuse , 2/ CHECK high voltage transformers to see if there are signs of burning on either primary or secondary windings, if you are not a tech or a electrician it is very hard to explain how to test to the other componets, capacitor doide or magnetron visual inspections is all you can do

Kenmore Micro/Oven fuse keeps blowing


Disconnect the connector to the primary winding of the high voltage transformer. Put a new fuse . If the fuse is not blowing the problem may be in the secondary side of the high voltage transformer. Chek the highvoltage diode, capacitor, magnetron respectively. you can also check the primary winding of the low voltage transformer.

110v


Usually it "Blows" the primary winding of the step down transformer and often does nothing else, if ya lucky, so try replacing the transformer, sometimes it can also, as well blow the Bridge Rectifier OR rectifier Diodes, on the secondry side. I havent seen schematics have you Goggled for them?

Unit shuts off (JVM1340WW002) and blows fuses


Generally speaking, if the high voltage capacitor is shorted, the fuse will blow as soon as you hit the START pad. When the HV cap fails, I've never seen one do anything but short. If it's a few seconds or so into cooking, it's usually the high-voltage transformer. There may or may not be a burning smell. The cooling fan often will dissipate the smell. What can happen to the transformer is an expansion of the windings to the point where a couple of hot spots eventually make bare spots which touch, then the short causes the fuse to blow. When it cools, they aren't shorting anymore. It's possible it's the mag or something else, but not too likely. You can (carefully!) disconnect the primary leads from the HV transformer then run the oven, making sure the wires are free and clear. If the fuse blows, the problem is in the low-voltage side. If it doesn't the trouble is in the HV side. If you broke a seal (tamper tag) or left any other evidence that you were inside the microwave, your warranty will be voided. Some parts may be covered, but the labor warranty usually expires sooner. Be careful.
