How do I fix a blown op amp on fender hot rod deville 2x12?


Unless the person that analyzed this problem used an oscilloscope and did detailed troubleshooting, I would NOT jump to the conclusion that aan op amp was blown BASED upon my looking at the schematic of the unit. There are MANY components involved with the overdrive channel, including relays and other transistors and components. The most probable caause would be that 1/2 of the V2 vacuum tube is burnt out. Test by swapping V1 with V2. If NOTHING works, then replace the tube that is NOW in V1 as the second section of it has a burnt out heater. Also a bad potentiometer for the OD channel would be a suspect. A VERY common problem is broken solder at pot terminals. Try plugging a set of headphones into the preamp output. See if you can hear sounds in bothe OD and clean channels. Note you will only hear sound in the LEFT headphone as the preamp out is MONO. MOST of the three op amp chips would NOT kill the OD signal if they were bad.

My Fender Hot Rod deluxe makes a popping noise when switching back to the clean channel.


This is because your clean channel only runs through the pre-amp section, requiring an increased volume level to match that of the volume of the drive section which is overdriven by the pre-amp circuit. my suggestion is to use lower volume level on the clean channel of the amp. To get any volume boost you may need to match the two channels you could use a signal/volume booster or overdrive pedal between your guitar and amp input, switching it off and back on when you switch back and forth between channels.

Fender hot rod deville 212 111. On the 2nd and 3rd distortion chanels the noise coming out of the speaker is very loud. Is this normal? Hard to play through the noise.


Hi. If the volume and drive levels are considerably low but you still hear a noise, you may want to consider trying a different guitar cable. The noise may be coming from a ground loop which is being amplified and overdriven by the amp itseld. I hope this helps. :-)

I have a Fender 2x12 Hot Rod Deville. The clean channel seems to be working fine but the overdrive channel is not. I have to turn it up all the way in oder to get just a little bit of sound. So that...


For the Drive channel you need to use the Drive control AND the MASTER volume control. When the Drive channel is active, the Channel Indicator lamp should be RED indicating the Drive Channel is active. The Drive control knob is used to adjust the preamp volume and distortion level of the Drive Channel. This gives you a clue as to what to check if adjusting the controls doesn't work -- the preamp tubes. Having said that, ONLY try to check these tubes with the amp OFF! Never stick your hand up into the chassis of a live amp. It could be lethal. Your preamp tubes are the ones farthest from where the power cord enters the chassis. They have a rubber like stabilizer on them. They have a tendency to wiggle loose, which is part of the reason for the stabilizer. Again, if you're not familiar with the insides...stay out and get an amp tech to help you.

The Normal Channel only uses the Volume Control to adjust volume.

When i use the over drive it will switch back and forth between the clean channel. But when im on the clean channel it is fine.


Sounds like the overdrive switch needs cleaning (with switchcleaner) or replacing. Try touching the switch gently when in overdrive position - if that brings on the jump-to-clean fault, then you confirm the switch is the problem.

Everytime I play on my Fender Frontman 212R the amp switches betweeen the overdrive and clean channels. I can't even switch between the channels on my own. It does it itself. I need help fixing this...


You don't say if you are using a footswitch or not... If you are, the switch, cables and connectors are suspect.

If you are NOT using the controller, the switch contacts on the footswitch jack in the 212 are suspect as being intermittent contacts.

If the contact is not making, the OD switch on the unit will NOT work either.

These jacks, and their contacts are JUNK and often cause problems.

Open the unit and increse the tension of the contact springs.

My 94 blues deluxe switches channels by itself .happens occasionally.it will switch to the overdrive channel, then a few seconds later switch back to the clean channel.


IF YOU ARE USING the footswitch, then likely problem is with cable and or the pug and jack.

IF YOU ARE NOT using the footswitch the contact switch on the jack for the footswitch is PROBABLY intermitent contact. These jacks are POOR quality in the music equipment. If this is the case in yours, open the unit and tighten the spring contact.
