Hi. If the volume and drive levels are considerably low but you still hear a noise, you may want to consider trying a different guitar cable. The noise may be coming from a ground loop which is being amplified and overdriven by the amp itseld. I hope this helps. :-)

Fender Hot Rod Deville 212 sounds ok then LOUD HUM


On mine, the guitar input jacks get tarnished and causes all kind of interference and noise. Take a Q-Tip soaked with WD-40, run in down into the jack and brush up and down. Don't overlook the filter caps as they are a common cause of noise. You need a capacitor checker (the older tube type) to thourghly check those out.

Crate three button foot swich how do you connect it to the amp


The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe shows a 2-button footswitch as standard but I'm confused. This link shows it as connected to the amp via a mono cable ... FENDER Hot Rod Deluxe DeVille Footswitch which is impossible using two switches. Normally it's a stereo (tip, ring, sleeve) with tip to sleeve being one connection, and ring to sleeve the other. Good luck with this one.

My 412Hot Rod Deville has terrible humming/white noise when distortion channel is on


It doesn't happen often but I suspect that the high gain input jack is defective. With nothing plugged into either input jack part of the signal is grounded and there should not be any noise. It might be that plus a noisy preamp tube. Try swapping the first two tubes to see if there is less noise. Carefully bang your fist or use an insulated tool's handle to hear if the noise changes. It might be an intermittent solder connection as well.

My fender hot rod deluxe is distorting in clean channel when I push the volume past 2


Realize that the number on the volume control is only relative... it means nothing regarding what the amp can produce. With a high level output guitar you can easily drive the amp into distortion at very low volume control level settings... what counts is the actual output sound volume and specifically the voltage output going to the speaker. Once the amp reaches saturation, any further input just pushes it into distortion or "flat topping".
An oscilloscope on the output will quickly show when amp starts to flat top.

Occaisional Loud spurts of noise?? Playing along normally and it suddenly goes very loud for a second. Any suggestions?


This is PROBABLY due to a bad volume control pot or wiring to the pot. Sometimes people have used DeOxit or Blue shower in the pots and it wrecks them. The resistance element may be cracked in he pot. The break would be on the side of the pot that connects to ground.

When I turn on my fender hot rod deluxe 40W, even before plugging in my guitar, it crakles and makes noises constantly. I've had it for over 5 years and I play it maybe 1 hour a week. Is it a tubes issue?...


This is likely either a tube issue OR one with capacitors.

You need to characterize the loudness of the noises versus the settings of the controls as part of troubleshooting...

You can try tapping each tube with a pencil to see if one in failure will reveal itself.

Deville 212 overdrive channel making Loud humming noise


It sounds like a filter capacitor(s) has failed. The electrolytic caps dry out and cease to perform allowing unfiltered power to reach the preamp sections and get amplified.

Being this is tube with high voltages, an experienced person should work on it due to shock danger.

I assume you checked the tubes for shorts as well as emission since a heater to cathode short could cause this as well.
