SOURCE: when hooking amp directly to

your amp is bad. you should have a 12v, ground, and remote wire. if these are hooked up correctly, your amp is more likely broken, and needs to be repaired or replaced.

SOURCE: Kenmore Electric Dryer Model 110.69902890

The dryer operates both on 120VAC and 240VAC. The motor and the controls are hooked up on 120VAC whereas the heating circuit is on 240VAC.

The problem here is likely with the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat located on the heater housing. Disconnect power then pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.


Remove the hex-head screw from the heater shield and remove the shield.

Disconnect the red wire from the thermal cut-off and the red/white stripe wire from the heater. Connect the red wire disconnected from the thermal cut-off to the heater terminal where the red/white stripe wire is disconnected from.

Reconnect power then start the dryer. The problem is indeed with the two bypassed components if the dryer heats up. Replace both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat and it should solve the heating problem. Do not use the dryer with those parts bypassed due to high risk of fire hazards.

SOURCE: i just bought a punch

The spark could be from the capacitors in the amplifier charging. Make sure the main fuse from your battery is still good and also check all the fuses on the amplifier. Verify all the wiring is correct and make sure none of the wires from inside the positive cable are poking out and touching the vehicle or amplifier chassis. If you have a 1k ohm resistor, you can put it in series with the amplifier power line to slowly charge the capacitors. You can do that by following the directions from the link below. After doing all that, remove the 1k resistor, hook it all up and try it again. If it still doesn't work, make sure your remote wire coming from the head unit has a voltage on it when the head unit is on. You can get a cheap volt meter from a hardware store or wal-mart.

My hifonics Brutus 2000 watt has a dead short in it somewhere,as soon as you put power to it it blows the fuse,no lights nothing.any body got any ideas?i have it all tore apart now,but no burn spots

Call hifonics, they do flat rate repairs on their equipment for a reasonable rate. Most likely, you have a shorted mosfet transistor module in the power supply. these are not a smple repair, most local shops won't touch them. 25321271-zkea2bktkzr3q3lrmfdlr2m5-4-0.jpg

Why does the hifonics bxi1608d 1600 watt super D-class mono have 2 postive terminals and two negative terminals? would that cause my speakers to blow?

That is still a single channel cass D amp. Each (-) and each (+) terminal are connected so its actually like only having one. This is so you can hook speakers up in a series circuit to lower impedance, because this amp is 1ohm stable. What causes your speakers to blow is too much power. What kind of speakers are you running? This hifonics amp is very powerful, they are getting big in the competition industries beacuse they put our true power for less money and they are tough. That 1600 amp you have may be putting out more like 1800 watts at 14.4 volts which is 900 per sub at 1ohm so be careful this amp has tons of power and its true rated its not like a sony or rocksford or kenwood that says 1800 max and then in small writing it says 500 rms. This amp puts out true. I have 3 hifonics amps and love them.

Where do i plug the rca cables at? there are two different places

Plug into the ones that say input, the other ones are to plug another amp into, so for just the single amp setup plug into the input.

My amp is not working , i think i blew a channel please help

If you swap the rca cables going into amp if you still hear nothing from that side swap speaker and then check to see if it works. If not, you do indeed have a bad amp.

Power good no green light no subs

Make sure you got a good ground. do not ground on painted surfaces! If you got power from battery, check the remote wire running to cd player. Hook up remote blue wire with the one for cd player. If you still have a problem and the fuse is good, then the amp is fried
