SOURCE: Factory radio keeps blowing fuses.

you should bypass the factory cd player. I installed a panasonic cd player in a 1994 gs 300 and it was hell. there are alot of wires that have nothing to do with the radio i believe one or some of those wires may be whats causing your problem try this solution if that doesnt work you may have a serious electrical problem

SOURCE: keeps blowing the fuse.

In more rare scenarios the 24v activated fan relay that is soldered to the circuit board can cause this same problem. I agree with Therinnaiguy, If the fuse is blown 90+% of the time there is a short in the 24 volt control system.

SOURCE: I have a Marshall G100RCD

You have a shorted output channel. You probably see burnt resistors and very heat stressed areas of the board. That is a sign of the outputs being shorted. Unless you have experience in repaired amplifiers you will not be able to repair this yourself. If you change the burnt resistors, they will most likely burn up again. The output transistors for one of the channels are also shorted. They must be replaced along with every other bad component. If you miss just one of the bad components you will most likely burn up all the good parts you just put in. Resistors must be checked to make sure they are within the rated tolerance, capacitors must be checked for being shorted or being dry, diodes must be checked for being open or shorted, output transistors and driver transistors must be checked for being open or shorted, and the list goes on. It is a very difficult job for anybody not experienced in repairing electronics.

Take it to a reapir center that will work on those type of amplifiers, not all repair centers will.

I am very sorry to give you such bad news, but it is the problem you are having.

If you need any additonal help feel free to ask, if you decide you are going to try and fix it yourself I can tell you what to look for and how to check them, but without the proper equipment you will not be able to do this.

If you found this information helpful a rating of "FixYa" would be appreciated. The "FixYa" ratings is not just for helping you fix your equipment yourself, it is also for helping you decide if you can even fix it yourself or not.

Thanks, and I hope you find a good repair center.

What causes the 4 amp slo burning fuse to blow on a hobart beta mig 200


You are exceeding 4 amps? I have to believe this is a fuse for the control wiring and not the weld current or primary circuit. Likely you have a blown circuit board in the control area.

I have a Carrier Heat Pump model FK4CNF003. I noted that the thermostat wasn't working (no power) so I checked the usual suspects...in bound power etc. before I pulled the top housing off the interior...


The source may be the circuit board itself,since the fuse is only 5 amps I would strongly suspect this part, look for any heat damaged area, this is the usual suspect.

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

5 amp fuse keeps blowing


Hi Jeff,
The fuse is to protect the blower, you and other equipment. It is a warning that something is not working correctly.
If you have a multimeter, use it to see if you have a short circuit or a partial short circuit by using the ohm measurement.
Physically check the wires and and wire connections in the unit to see if there is any sign of shorting out - usually looks like a black smudge.
Do not replace the fuse with a higher rating fuse.
If you can find some short circuit, thoroughly clean the area, or replace the faulty wire, or both.
If you cannot find a fault easily, you may have to get the unit seviced.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The blue wire disconnected and the 30 amp fuse being pulled is typical of a DC circuit problem. What concerns me is the fact that someone had to put a 30 amp fuse in a 3 or 5 amp circuit. Maybe you meant to say 3.0 amp.

The unit uses a 5 amp fuse on J5 of the main board for AC power and a 3 amp fuse on J1 of the main board for DC power.

See page 17 of this manual:
http://www.gas-refrigerators.com/pdf/RM2852-manual.pdf

For part numbers of parts see Appendix A in this manual:
http://www.dometic.com/c415ec17-8004-4fef-9a97-c68e601bf593.fodoc

You will need to use this manual to troubleshoot:
http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/1252service.pdf
See step 3 page 2 to start... where is says Operation you have to perform the testing steps listed below Operation.

Operation

AC Volts

Fuse

Heating Element

Wiring
Lower Circuit Board

From the hip given the fuse was removed I would suspect the heating element but.. follow the sequence above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Arcam alpha 8 amp keeps blowing fuses


When the fuses keep blowing suspect an overload in the power supply or on the Main Power Amp board. Chances are that a semiconductor has developed a short and is acting like it was just a piece of wire. The main suspects are power transistors. These can be tested with an Ohm Meter, even in circuit! For when the test probes are applied to each terminal, the meter will act just like you were touching the probes together.

Behringer super x pro.the fuse keeps blowing on the ac inlet(t200 MA).a replacement unit works fine in the system.


When a fuse keeps blowing suspect an overload in either the power supply section or main amp part.
Look for burnt or damaged parts first.
The suspects in the power section are: transformer, diodes, rectifier, voltage stablizer, regulator.
In the Amp Section anything on the heat sink.

3 amp fuse blows after three hours on Goodman 4 ton 16 seer pump


I would suspect you have a problem in the defrost circuit of your heat pump. there are a couple of things you can try. first just run the system on emergency heat and see what happens. you could have a defrost board that is shorting when it kicks into defrost. it sends a signal back to the furnace so it will come on during defrost. if you do not blow a fuse as long as you are running in emergency heat, i would suspect the defrost control board. also you could have a dead short in the wire that runs from the "w" terminal on furnace control board, out to the heat pump. keep in mind that any of the wires could be the cause and i am just tying to give you the most common things. your furnace will still run if you unhook all the low voltage wiring out at the heat pump. if you do this and stop blowing fuses. you know it is something on that wiring. goodl luck.

3amp fuse keeps burning out


Hi,

when a fuse blows, its telling you that theres a fault. this could be a loose or broken wire.
or alternatively, the fuse rating is too low. you could check the wires are tight. and also possibly try fitting a 5 amp fuse. check first that the fuse is rated correctly for the appliance. usually 3-5 or 13 Amps.
