Re: Amp blows fuses Checked out OK: output transistors,...

The fuses are there to protect the internals of the AMP.....
Please check that the correct fuses are installed......
if the incorrect ones are installed then a fire may develope...

There should be a manufacturers lable on the external chassis that details the fuses to use....

Fuses now days can be slow blow or fast the correct fuses must be used.....dont increase the fuse rating past the chassis panel label...but make sure they are correct...if they are correct then the amp needs a service to determine where the peak loadings to the power supply are originating from...

Some one may have installed incorrect fuses in the past...

Cheers from YUBEUT

I shorted out the speaker wire going to sub and now the amp doesnot work

You have probably blown the internal power supply fuses in your amp or the speaker fuse in the amp. The chances of blowing your sub are slim.

The internal fuses can sometimes be hard to find. They aren't usually intended for the user to change. DO NOT replace them with higher amperage fuses if they blow after you replace them as there has been severe damage caused to the circuitry. Also, don't replace them with higher amperage fuses because you think that this will let you get more power out of the amplifier. This won't work, and you will end up blowing your expensive output devices.

NAD Electronics 7020e 4A fuse keeps blowing on power up

Well you are on the right course. I suspect you think the problem is in the power supply and it's probably not. I think that what's gone is either a transistor (or more) or an IC amp - if it uses one - on the main power amp stage. Look at the devices on the heat sink. I think that's where you will find your shorted device.

My bass amplifier requires a ceramic fuse T10H250V. Where can I find one exactly like it?


Fuse breaks when it has succeeded in limiting further damage.

Check for other possible shorted electrical and electronic


• Could be drive transistor , output transistor or both on the main amp.

But check for power supply and in the preamps also.

• Measure supply voltages,

• Check DC offset voltage

• Check idling current (main amp)

Isolate , and trace afterwards.

No sound cuming out of amp fuses all ok

sounds like the output amp module is kaput, the output fuses can still be intact and the transistors or power amp chip can be faulty, there can also be fuseable resistors that can blow before anything else if its a fairly modern unit,,what type of amp is it and how did the problem occur

Samick sga 120 amp keeps blowing fuses. replaced all rectifier diodes and tranformer seems to be working fine. any suggestions?

Fuse blowing is due to excessive current drain and the the first clue is the blown fuse itself. If the fuse blows with a flash a bang and splatters copper across the inside of the glass you have a hard blow caused by a dead short on the power supply, check for power switch flashing over internaly. Short circuit main filter capacitors. Shorted turns in power transformer primary winding. If fuse just separates check for short on output transistors C to E. Try isolating fault by disconnecting LT pos/neg supplies to output stage. Also check for partial shorts on speakers and speaker wires using an analog ohm meter on low ohms setting.

A diode/rectifer or voltage stabliser, or leaky capacitor in the power supply.
Also the main transistors in the power amp or if it has an output IC - that!
If you can in anyway disconnect the power supply section from the amp circuit, you can isolate which part is faulty. For if it blows when disconnected from the power amp, you know it's just the power supply that's gone. And if it does not blow - then it's the amp!

may i ask you did you put silicone grease in your transistor and apply a good mica insulator in all of your transistor---------look for any burnt resistor or explosive capacitor -----check for scew tie your supply voltage to earth by wrong.

Nad amp failure

Check fuses mounted near transformer . If blown check output transistor. Also check transistor transistors on small heat sink . they will cause fuse to blow.

Channel short

Hi there, sounds like you may have a short to ground on the output transistors. Does it have transistors or an IC output. It is most likely that you have not replaced a mica washer or insulator. Check to ground with a meter from the case of the output devices.
