If I can read you right you are saying that the device keeps blowing the fuse?

Fuses blow when there is an overload. As it is an amplifier we are dealing with the cause is more than likely a shorted output transistor or more than one, or whatever does the main amplification for the device. These devices are located on the main power amp board attached to a heat sink. If the amp has fuses for each channel then you only need to replace the devices on that channel, with the fuses blowing on it. The cause of shorted devices is often bad speaker wires or them touching.

Adcom amp 5802 running hot

It should run hot to touch at idle, about 120F, because it is MOSFET type amplifier.

Humming when no input in jack; works fine with rca inserted; worries me that somethings is not right even though works fine with RCA or XLR plugged in, right channel only

Sounds like it could be feedback hum. Is there anything near it that could cause a reaction when unpluged? Such as a turntable, cassette etc. If so move them and see if it goes away. Even then it won't hurt the amp. I think otherwise worry when there's a hum when they are plugged in. PS check any earth connections too!

I turn on the ADCOM GFA-5802 amplifier... ...The power light comes on, but does not heat up nor output sound

Have it serviced. Do you know what GFA stands for. People at Adcom do have a great sense of humor. Take it only to a high end audio servicer. Contact Adcom. This is good stuff you wouldn't want a hack working on it.

Can you bridge an adcom GFA-5802 power amp?

Running an amp in bridge mode requires a specific circuit design. It is not possible to combine 2 amps in this fashion.

ADCOM GFA 5802 POWER AMP NO SOUND, BUT POWERS UP.

Remove the output transistors and measure each of the sets of 3 pads and report the voltage readings here. I suspect that you have either a blown driver circuit or output transistors. The voltage readings will give me an idea on where to start looking for specifics.

Thanks,
Dan

Drop out of left channel, Adcom GFA5802

It sounds as if there is a broken solder joint somewhere that slowly opens up with heat. The other possibility is that an input or driver transistor is dying. Since the whole channel is dying, I would guess the broken joint and/or dying transistor are near the very input of the channel.
A tech can very easily find the spot by playing the amp until it starts to die, then spraying small bursts of freeze spray, one component or area at a time, until the amp suddenly comes back to life.
