Question about Yamaha Mg8-2fx 8-Channel Mixer with Effects System

Open Question

One of the capacitors burned out, and the mixer didn't power up. After replacing the capacitor, it powers up and works normally. However, the capacitor is producing high heat and burning smell. It will probably burns out if it is kept powered up. What is the problem?

    Sounds like there could be a bad resistor in series with the capacitor which is allowing too much voltage across the capacitor (therefore too much current). Or, it could be the motor winding beginning to fail (also allowing too much current through the capacitor). Or ??

    It would be easier if you could give the value of the capacitor so we can figure out which area it belongs to.

Osolation? What do you mean - isolation, or oscillation?

SOURCE: no power to filter capacitors

After switch through relay then down to fuse you should come to a full wave rectifier (solid state vs. tube?). The output of the rectifier goes to the filter caps. example: +30vdc, -30vdc with respect to ground. Best of luck.

SOURCE: the amp just quit. will not power back up.

Ok there is a few steps to check in this case.
1. Make sure the positive cable is secured proply on the battery termnial also while you are there as well check to make sure the fuse on the positive cable isn't blown.

2.Make sure your ground cable is secured proply down on the frame of the car or if you are runing a negitive cable back to the battery(the same apply,s as step 1 - less the fuse).

3.Check to make sure the remote turn on cable is not lose on the amp connection.

Hope this will help a bit.

This isn't something we can help you with. Keep a fire extinguisher handy if you want to keep messing around with it. It needs hands- and eyes-on by a pro.

I have a Mackie 406m powered mixer. I was in a club with less than adequate power. My mixer got very hot and started smelling. Now when I turn it on, over 6 months later, it still smells and it has a loud...

More in likely a voltage drop in the club, and the mixers power transformer was fighting for power, so it's brunt or burning up, also there are capacitors that filter the AC transformer hum, they Probably need to be replaced, this can be fixed tho, parts and labor might not be cheap...

I have a hobart mixer 80 quart .The motor makes a noise and would not start. It only starts if I turn the shaft and turn the on switch at the same time

Most motors of that type have a capacitor that puts the stator out of phase with the rotor. They are capacitor start induction run motors. These also have a centrifugal switch inside near the end ot the shaft to put power to the start winding for a split second to determine the direction of turn and to increase horsepower until it is up to speed. So if it fails to start either the centrifugal switch needs cleaning (or replacement if damaged) or the capacitor needs replacing to give it its original power, or the start winding has failed from overheating. There may be a thermal cutout on the start winding that may need to be replaced if it did overheat. If the start winding burned then the motor would require rewinding or replacement.

Mixer only runs at one speed

if it runs only at high speed it needs a new phase control board if the mixer is post 1978, if the mixer is pre 1978 then you will have to replace a capacitor on the end of the power cord inside the mixer. if the mixer only works on one speed that is not high speed then you need to adjust or replace the speed control plate on post 1978 mixers and the capacitor on pre 1978 machines. Hope that helps

How do you test a 1kvolt ceramic capacitor?

Hi Mixers,
You can test a 1kvolt ceramic capacitor;
a) using a capacimetre; replacing with other one of the same type; connecting it in a 12V oscillator circuit with a LED as output wich shall blink in a frequency determined by the capacitance, says, fast with low capacitance and slow with high capacitance. Normally ceramic HV capacitors are of small capacitance for use in high switching circuits or as a protection of a power switching transistors in modern power supplies

I have a Pmp5000 889406987784 Eurowpower PMP5000 1200-Watt 20-Channel Mixer and Speaker Output A has no output. What has happened?

Usual problem is the Channel A amplifier has burned and blown the switching transistors. Usually an internal board arc occurs and unless very skilled at board work of clearing the burned area and replacing the components you are better to replace the HCA2400 amplifier module... about $160

Hobart A 200 Mixer

There are four possibilities to look at here. Assuming your mixer has a normal capacitor start motor (older a200's used a different style motor), possibilities are, in order of likelihood:

Motor start capacitor
Start switch (electronic or mechanical)
Burned wiring
Motor start winding

The start capacitor is located at the rear of the mixer. Remove the rear cover (4 screws) and pull the cover towards you. Disconnect one wire from the capacitor and test with any multimeter.

The start switch, if electronic, is able to be tested, but not very easily. Once you've eliminated the other possibilities, it's time to replace the (electronic) start switch. If the motor has a mechanical start switch, it's easy to test: Remove the two wires at the rear of the motor and test for continuity with the motor stationary. A multimeter should show near zero ohms for a good mechanical start switch.

Burned wiring should be easy to spot with some careful inspection around the motor, capacitor, and start switch.

Start winding: Look closely at the stator (stationary part of the motor). If some of the copper windings look significantly darker in color than the others, it's likely the start windings were overheated (the start windings are the thinner copper wires - if you look closely, approximately half of the wires are thinner than the other half). Look for a wiring diagram behind the power switch and determine which wires leading to the start switch and/or capacitor are for the start windings and test for continuity across the start winding. You should read a fairly small value such as 5 - 15 ohms. Values significantly outside this range could indicate a partially open or partially shorted start winding.

The capacitor on the speed switch is burning out.

I have found that the capacitor is no longer available, along with
any of the motor parts. Armature, brushes, motor end bearing, etc, are not available.
