SOURCE: sansui g5500 receiver keeps blowing fuse 5amp.

I cannot seem to find any useful information for so I'll just say this from personal experiences repairing amps/receivers. Unfortuneatley there is no good news for you.

The only reason a fuse would keep blowing is if a upstream component is bad or there is a short to ground on the circuit card. If g5500 is a tube set you may get lucky as tubes either open circuit or short circuit. My suggestion, if tube, would be to power up the unit after taking the cover off and notice if there are any tubes that light up at all, will be a quick look and a number of fuses.

BUT FIRST. BEFORE YOU TAKE THE COVER OFF ANY UNIT, UNPLUG FROM WALL AND LET IT SIT FOR 2 HOURS. This gives the unit time to discharge the large capacitors in the power supply. After you wait, then take cover off being very carefull. Notice where there are capacitors (look like miniature coke cans) or any other component, you really want to avoid touching anything, And talking about touchingif you touch a tube wash your hand real well or preferably wear gloves. The oil from our skin will cause the tube to bust because of the interaction.

Another thing you can do is follow the above procedure to remove the cover but don't turn on the power.Carefully remove all the tubes. The unit might "power on" but can't be used. This would indicate one of the tubes is bad. If it does shut-down immediately, shop time.

Pure new-age component only amps/receivers are a lot harder to diagnose as there is solder work involved to test the individual part. So this need to be done in a shop as well.

I would love to help but can't, I can only guide you a bit.

Good Luck!!!
Jeff

What fuse are you blowing? A fuse in the amp itself, or the fuse in your main fuse box for the house?
If it's the one in the amp, check the speaker wires for shorts, and if thats not it, then it is bad news as stated above.

If it's youre home fuse thats tripping, then you need to consult an electrician to give you another ciruit for your setup. Possible the TV is draining a lot of power.

Some of the outputs transistors is bad hence causing a bridge in circuit,thats why the fuse is blowing.Check all the outputs transistors on both channels,rectifiers and zena diodes these are the possible causes of circuit bridge when they are faulty.The fan works on AC thats why it is not affected even when the fuse is blown.Please if you have anymore challenge please send me a mail on mikewee4wee@yahoo.com

The converter should not b e a problem. It's time to ask a technician or a HiFi shop, an internal short circuit is blowing the fuse. Don't insist.

It keeps blowing my fuse for my stock radio. Pushing a 10" sub.. Fuse on my amp is good. In-line fuse is good. But it keeps blowing the radio fuse in my panel.. ? Please help.. Thanks Ryan


Check the amp turn-on wire. It's a blue/white wire running from the radio to the amp. It's probably label REM at the amp. This wire sends a switched 12 volts from the radio to the amp. It is probably shorting out somewhere between the radio and the amp.

I have a pro-sound 1000 which keeps blowing plug fuses Can you let me know what fuse should be in the plug as this maybe the problem


The fuse in the power plug is there to protect the cable. The fuse in the plug should be the same as the cable. For instance a 5amp cable should have a 5amp fuse. If the fuse blows all the time the cable could be faulty or there could be an overload in the power supply (perhaps the transformer has failed) that is causing the supply to draw more amps than the cable and fuse can cope with.
WARNING fitting a fuse higher than the cable rating could cause the cable to overheat and catch fire!

The two 5 amp fuse inside the amplifier keeps blowing


Hi,

That must be the inrush current.
Maybe you are using the wrong fuses.
Please check if those are fast or slow types.
You need slow types.

Good luck,
Gerard

Fuse keeps blowing


The amplifier probably has shorted output transistors. If the amp only blows the fuse after remote voltage is applied, the damage may be minor. They generally blow two transistors. Sometimes that's all that needs to be replaced.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Amps


If the amp blows a fuse with no remote voltage applied, the amp has a short in the primary side of the power supply. If the fuse only blows after remote voltage is applied, the amp probably has shorted output transistors.
