This may be due to the fault that the output is overheating and exceeding the currrent limit set on the fuse . Hence the fuse is blowing off. If the amp is working normal after it coold off and after replacement of the fuse, then the overloading of the output needs to be checked.check the rating of the speakers. Do not use the amp inside a closed cabinet. If possible use a good ventillation , a fan and try out if the amp works fine. If so check if the soruce is producing any distortions to thermally run the outputs. reduce volume level , and check the heating. once you have located the problem of the heat proceed to isolate the section. helpful? Good day

Amc amp fuse keeps blowing

Fuses blow when there's an overload. Suspect a faulty semi-conductor device somewhere.

Roland KC-550 blows 500ma fuses in power supply for no appearent reason. Why does this happen and are fuses correct value?

Fuses blow when there is an overload. This is caused by a faulty part in either the power supply (such as transformer or any semi-conductor -diodes, rectifier, IC, transistors etc) or in the main amp stage - anything on the heat sink. The most common cause is a semi-conductor acting like it was just a piece of wire. A cause of an overload alsot is a speaker wire shorting, which blows out the transistors on the heat sink or whatever is on there, they in turn blow the fuse!
Whatever value fuses is put in will blow! The higher the rating however could cause something to get hot thus causing a fire, before they do go!
If the 500ma fuses where the originals marked on the end cap, then stick with them. Often it is writtten on the PC board too.

Check continuity of this 10A fuse to see if it's blown.

What is most likely to have happened, is that an internal short has happened inside the main transformer. These cannot be rectified, and often means scrapping the complete item due to cost of replacement.
However - if you can find another microwave with a different fault - just remove the good transformer.

Checking the transformer for a short at high voltage is not recommended.
You could try a spare 10A fuse as a start point (probably a leaded type) - but expect it to blow again. DON'T go higher or omit !

Fuel ECU fuse keeps blowing (30 amp)

Your fuel pump is internally binding and causing the fuse to blow. Change the pump (and filter while you're back there.)

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.

Car heat blower is not blowing heat/air into the care

it's either a fuse or it's a bad blower motor, it could be a bad blower motor resistor but usually you'll get either high or low only, so if you have nothing on any speed, high low etc, and all the fuses are ok chances are it's your blower motor.

My ignition fuse keeping blowing

You have a wire rubbing on something metal. Look at the wiring harness in the car and engine compartment. Try moving them around a bit and see if you can get the fuse to blow or not to blow.

No sound through my AMC 3050A

Strange problem. If you have moved the equipment carefully, reconnected all cables and inputs properly in the right sockets and terminals, i don't see any reason why the amplifioer should not work. And if Power is Ok, Amp should work. Pls recheck all connections properly once again.
