Kenwood AR 404 burning w/ open flame.

Hello,
I dusted off an old Kenwood receiver, plugged it in and nothing but the standby light came on after repeatedly pressing the power button. I took the paneling off and found that the 6.3AL 250V fuse was blown. Replaced the fuse, plugged the unit back into the wall and the damn thing burst into flames in some random spot on the main circuit board. The new fuse was blown, too. I replaced the 2nd fuse. Near where the fire happened, I found some adjustable nobs and turned them using trial and error. adjustment found a spot for the nob that prevents the fire from restarting when I plug the receiver back in. So now the LCD and everything is coming on for about 10 seconds and then shutting down. The standy light starts flashing. Can you help?????

Hook up for an AR 404 receiver


Copper is positive, aluminum is negative. OR One of the wires should have a white (or black) stripe on the insulation...this is negative wire. OR If using 18 gauge extention cord wire, the positive wire will have small grooves running the entire lenght (very difficult to identify, unless you have good eyesight) Hope this helps.

I have an old Kenwood receiver that does not power up anymore. Not even the red standby light glows. I have power to the unit but that is it. I have checked the fuses on the inside but after that I am no...


If the voltage was 110, the polarity should not have made a difference. In all probability, the input power transformer has an open primary. This can happen with a power surge or just because of age. If you have an Ohmmeter, with the unit unplugged, measure across the 2 input pins for the main transformer. It should read about 3 ohms or less. If it reads infinity, it is open and must be replaced.

Keep us posted,

I have a kenwood stereo integrated amplifier KA 791 and the dual cassete KXw892, niether will come on. when plugged in the standby light only comes on. the reciever and cd player components come on fine?...


That system came with the kt591 tunner in a bundle which consisted of what you call the Kenwood Spectrum 700 rack system, you had to plug the tuner into the wall and then plug the amp into the tunner if you didnt , when you turn the amp on you just get a relay clicking noise and nothing turned on.
