Question about Denon AVR-2802

1 Answer

Denon AVR 3802

I have a 120v transformer in my Denon, but as I live in England I need a 240v transformer to run it. Does anyone have any ideas where I can get one, or do you know of an equivalent transformer that would be suitable? Many thanks Garry.

    Ah, do you mean I can get a step down transformer from maplins, because I`m actually looking for an internal replacement? Thanks Quarkstar.

    Hi Garry

    Thanks for the Fixya.

    It is possible that there is an internal or external voltage selector. Consult the manual if you have one, or perhaps go to the Denon site and download one.

    Or if you are technically minded you may be able to rewire the primary of the transformer for 230vac.

    It will be difficult to find a direct internal new replacement. You could try contacting Denon UK themselves.

    The likelyhood is, that there will be several secondary tappings on the low voltage side of the internal transformer. Finding an off-the-shelf transformer that corresponds to the existing secondary tappings and that will physically fit will not be easy.

    A word of caution, mains voltages can be lethal, so be careful!

How can I fix my denon avr-5800 receiver?. it blew when I connected to 240v instead of 120v

Highly unlikely you can fix it. An overvoltage like that at the least fried the power transformer inside. If on the off chance nothing leaked through to the circuit board while the transformer was literally melting down (the windings) inside, if you could get the part and swap it, maybe it would work again.

The risk of that is another failure even at the right voltage because it is more likely the protective circuits were also fried, along with most of the logic chips and other things.

I assume there was a bang and some smoke or at least a good amount of acrid smoke. That usually is a sign of 'toast'. Very likely it would be cost ineffective to repair.

GE microwave fuse model jes532wn rating 15v but what voltage rating: 120v or 240v ?.thanks

fuses do not have voltage ratings they are a current device. the 15 V does not make sense. It might be 15 A which is the current rating. A standing for Ampere which is the maximum current named after the discoverer of current creating magnetic fields being Andr?-Marie Amp?re in 1826. The 120v or 240v relates to the transformer design in the microwave. The transformer would be design to run on 240V AC 50 HZ AC like in Oz and UK or 120V 60 Hhz AC like used in the USA out of the power point from the power company.
Also the current relates to the voltage. So voltage divided by circuit resistance equals current.denoted by the formula I = V/R

120v transformer in sony ccp 1300 broken

The thermal fuse is most likely to have failed and that may not necessarily be terminal. A Sony agent is bound by agreement to replace the transformer.

Want to add 240volt outlet to generator

You CANNOT do this, USA 240V is derived from a poly phase scenario, IE 120V line to neautral and 240V line to line, UK 240V is derived from 1 line to neutral it will not work unless you power a transformer

Yes, fuse may be blown, first check out the fuse of CDJ,
if it does not work. Install a physical 120v American transformer
also change the switch of 240v to 120v from back of CDJ

Electrical requirements for a Nexxt MO# WTMC 5321US

it would be simpler and cheaper to get a new dryer
most of the world uses a single phase 240v 50hz system, your dryer is designed to run on a 2phase 120v 90degree system.
the common statement that high voltage items like dryers use 220-240v is not strictly true, instead they run off both 120v phases of the 2phase system.
A transformer to produce a 2phase 90degree 120v 20A secondary from a 240v single phase source is expensive and very large.
It would be cheaper by far, to sell the dryer, and replace it with the equivalent model built for 240v single phase, than to buy the transformer and ship the dryer.
