It sounds like the power supply transistors have failed. You'll need to pull the clamps and get the numbers off of the transistors. It's also possible that the 47 ohm gate resistors have failed. After removing the old transistors, you need to check the resistors individually.

Since you're new to repair work, read the following page.

Basic Repair Introduction

Post the part numbers if they are incomplete and you can't find the correct replacements. mouser.com is probably the best place to buy small quantities if you're in the US.

You also need to check the output transistors to see if any are shorted. If they are, the repair will be more difficult (especially if there is damage to the driver board).

Hotpoint washer won't spin or agitate and has black soot - is clutch out?


The motor coupling is attached to the shaft of the motor. The "soot" is probably the result of the coupling shredding prior to failing

Black smoke from exhaust, rough idle, black soot on plugs


signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator-- the vehicle will run rough, the engine will not start ( usually in the mornings,) many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. replacement is only cure. 1- black soot on plugs-2-black smoke from tailpipe-3- running rough-4- stalling, good-day! repost if need be.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. What you are looking at is the start capacitor for the motor a $7 part at any HVAC supplier. If it is leaking it is definitely bad and needs to be replaced. This gives the compressor a boost on start up and drops out of the circuit after the compressor is running.

My Chevy Tahoe started blowing white smoke from the tailpipe. What could be some of the reasons it's doing this.


Only two reasons for this first is its below 0 outside the next is blown head gasket. Now thats WHITE smoke.ONLY.If it smells sweet like anti freeze that confirms head problem. black smoke is fuel, blue smoke is oil. sorry hope this helps TIM

Exhaust smoke at start up


It means that the system is running rich, in other words too much fuel.

Try checking your air filter--make sure it is not dirty. Also check for a plugged air intake hose. Enough air is not getting into your cylinders for the proper air-fuel ratio.

If it has carb, the carb float is too high or sunk.

My bx2200 cut off as soon as it was turned on and started smoking?


these are the trasistors..The ones closest to the power connectors are probably the ones for power supply and or 15 volt regulators..The rest are for amplifier section.Im guessing all except regulatos will be MOSFET transistors .If you are to replace them ..Stick to original parts..You can probably find these at mcmelectronics.com or mouserelectronics.com Just give then the numbers on transistors .Also make sure all other parts around shorted parts are okay before you install new parts..
