I'm guessing you don't know for sure that it even needs fuses. They don't go out like they used to, as everything is controlled by a microprocessor(computer within your unit). I would suggest, that you, with the power plug pulled out, use an ohm meter to be sure that each fuse is shorted. If you need further assistance, or would like to inquire about a repair, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.
IF THE FUSE YOU ARE PLACING IS THE SAME TYPE AS THE ORIGINAL YOUR AMP HAS A PROBLEM WHAT YOU MUST DO IS TO SLIGHTY INCREASE FUSE BY 100 MAMPS PER TIME IF IT IS IN THE TRANSFORMER CIRCUIT YOU CAN INCRESE IT BY 2 AMP MAX IF IT IS IN THE MOSFETS CIRCUIT YOU CAN INCRESE IT BY A MAXIMUM OF 500MAMP LET ME KNOW THE RESULTS
Never put any fuse in it and switch ON. It has some short with internal circuit, and should be repaired before installing a new fuse. The fuse use is as a protection device to protect the other circuit parts from further damage. If you will put an other fuse, and switch it ON again, you are making things more worse than present. Find out the reason for buring out fuse. If you can do it by yourself. Otherwise get it repaired by any experienced service personal. Never make it irreparable. OK.
It seems you have a short circuit in your unit. Further attempts at switching it on are not advisable as more damage will occur. Get it checked out by an electrician who can test from the plug for a short circuit.
Depends where you live! If in the UK you can get capacitors from Maplin Electronics. If you are in the US then the best place is Radio Shack I have been told.
Sometimes the website of the maker of electronics piece will have the authorized parts dealer address etc on the website.
Are you certain they are the only parts that have failed? I had an amp in for repair that blew them, but it was the main IC amp that was causing them to blow.
Lets try the simple stuff first. This whole problem could be caused by a dirty switch contact. Pick up some electronics cleaner from a local electronics shop and spray the switch (from the inside of the unit). Work the switch on/off a number of times then respray one more time. That should clean out any dirt that is there. Try the unit again and hopefully the problem is resolved. If not, then the switch itself may need to be replaced. When you get the cleaner, get one that contains a lubricant as well. This will help to prevent the problem from coming back again.
Since it is a Rotel, it is a good unit and worth fixing. At this point, you need to take it to a good repair shop and let a qualified tech look at it. There are no user serviceable parts inside and if you go poking around in there, you WILL make the problem worse. Rotels' are nice units and represent a good value in stereo gear. Take it to a reputable repair shop that repairs Rotel under warranty. If thats not available to you, then a good repair shop should be able to get you going. Good luck...Rob
