Question about Technics SA-DX1040 Receiver

1 Answer

Fan quit working. Is it likely the board, or the fan? Currently have a Radio Shack fan mounted; it's 120v, plugged into the AUX power on the back of the unit. It's noisy, otherwise unit works and runs cool - however, now it overloads on modest volume with music. Is this unit worth fixing? Thanks!

Hi, Have got and still use a Technics SA-GX910 Dolby Amp. It had an overheating problem too due to Air temp and power drain etc and the internal fan only engaged at certain volume level. Overheating was overcome by adding another internal fan.
Your unit however might need a bit more of a fix-me-up or throw it away

Lights up but when pressing Quick Start it automatically shows the lady liberty,etc for a moment then goes back to the Bowflex logo and nothing else. Help!

I was having the same issue to a T. I called Bowflex tech support, they told me that without a doubt the main pc board that is under the treads needed to be replaced for $515. I then trouble shot myself and got it up and running in minutes for $0. Take of the plastic top from the pc board area, unplug the little clipped in 2 wire plug labelled Fan. It litterally says fan on the board and you can see 2 wires going right to the fan. Once that is disconnected try to Quick Start. It should work. You can either replace the little fan for $6 @ radio shack or run a fan your self simply by facing your own in the same area. Most people are running a fan for themselves anyway, just aim for both. Good luck.

C7 error code

C7 code has to do with your main fan. Either its not working due to it being blocked or having gotten wet/damaged/power surged, or your control unit isn't supplying the correct 120V to the fan. Your control has a ceramic fuse that you can test as well.
First, look for 120V to either the left or right pair of wires in the molex plug on the fan. if you have voltage, then the fan is bad. If you dont, its either just a fuse, the board is bad, or the fan is bad causing the fuse to blow. Insert the supplied spare fuse, and power up the unit. If it blows the fuse again, its the fan.

Take the back off the control panel and see if you can access the board. If you can see the board component side, go to radio shack and fgget freeze spray. Start the oven and when it quits like you described, spray one part on the board at a time till it comes back on. OR buy a new board

Inside blower wont run

Sounds like you need a new board. Their are people out there that will replace the fan relay on these boards, but I have always just replaced the whole board with a new one. These boards can range from around $50 to $300 depending on which board it is. The way we always double check these boards are exactly the same way you have done it, only we use the 120v from the units transformer and bypass the board, if your fan comes on, your board is not sending the power through to the terminals. It would be different if nothing else on your system was working too. I hope this helps and good luck!

MY carrier model #58DHC with hot surface ignitor has quit working. Blower works, but no heat. If you turn the thermostat to on fan will run but no heat. Did preliminary testings with self test on printed...

If you suspect its the ignitor? The hot surface ignitor is powered by 120v. Inspect ignitors' hot surface for cracks or burnt spots. Uplug ignitor from board. Cycle heat on and verify 120v to the ignitor at the cannon plug on the board where the ignitor plugs in. If you have the voltage then replace the ignitor. If not, you'll need to verify all other circuits are working before condemning the board. Work safe and at your own risk! Hope this helps!

Need a replacement capacitor

Voltage rating doesn't matter. 250v or 330v will work.

If this is really a 2 speed original, with the 2.5Amp motor... it will NOT have a capacitor as the motor is a shaded pole unit. The three speed electrically reversible fans, have a capacitor, which can either be in the switch housing/ oil reservoir, or the top of the motor housing, depending on year of manufacture.

Connecting electronic air filter to furnace fan

You may need a "current sensing relay" to clip around the neutral wire on your blower.
Run the 120v power to the main power (the power switch- hot,neutral and ground) . Run the Hot wire through the "Current Sesing Relay" wires to the EAC unit's 120v. power input. The unit will only run when the fan is on.

Hope this helps,
