  • ADCOM Audio amp

    I’m considering purchasing a gfa-555ii with a bad On switch. Does anyone know what specific type switch is used?

    Who cares? Wire across the switch so it is always on, now plug it into a switched outlet strip. Voila.

    You show us a photo of the bad switch, I bet we can identify it.

    From this picture of one, it appears to be a small wide rocker.

      I could do that but I'd rather replace it with the correct switch, which is why I asked if anyone knew the specific switch. It was clear that I don't own it yet so I can't post a pic.

        From this pic, it looks to be a DPST and small wide rocker like Enzo says.

          Not too sure that I would trust the fact that the power switch is faulty.
          That makes the amp essentially 'untested'.

            The unit is advertised as working but the On switch isn’t. He turns it on/off thru a strip but I’d like to have a replacement I can install when it arrives.

              OK, so it is stuck ON. It could be a broken switch, but I know plenty of amps that use a power triac as the main switch, with the panel rocker just turning the triac on and off. A shorted triac leaves the unit always on, even if the switch is good.

              I know you don't have it, but I am sure we can replace the switch or otherwise deal with it. I kinda had the idea of taking a photo and a measurement after you get it.

              In my shop I had a huge switch collection, and usually I didn't know offhand what amp used what switch, but I knew I could match it from stock.

              It is highly unlikely that ADCOM used some custom made switch, more likely they just used some stock Carling switch from the catalog.

              I see from the internals photo it does not use a triac, the mains wire wired right to the switch, It could even be a full size rocker, like on a Peavey CS800 or a Marshall head.

                      Actually, it's a DPST.

                        The parts list calls for a RGSCC-711_R-B-B-O switch.
                        I don't see the 711 anywhere, just the 901.

                          A DPDT can be used in place of a DPST, just leave the extra pegs unconnected.

                            From the schematic it appears that they are using both sides of the DPDT (in parallel).
