    One screw will make a difference if it's connecting the green AC wire to chassis. ;)

    Just to throw in a similar example, Stromberg-Carlson AU-42 shows a 100nF for such a cap.

    When those were current models, the service bulletin came around telling us to update heater fuses to 6.3ASB in cases of nuisance blowing. At least for the Canadian versions with the fuse boards. ...

    I had thought so, and vaguely recall seeing an example sometime.
    So in post #8, where you said 'ground some point' it would be correct to say 'ground or reference to some other potential' ?

    In this unit the power switch is after the fuse, so it is a possible cause of the fuse blowing.

    I would think the power switch may have fried. Just bypass it (for test purposes) and use the AC plug to connect/disconnect power.

    Took me awhile, but I guess you were referring to the toilet flange job. :D


    The aluminum case ones are the ones I meant (that need to be mounted on a heatsink).

    I think the load resistors you are referring to require substantial heatsinks to achieve their power rating.

    Solve that C62 heat issue before you have a cap explosion. Too hot to touch is definitely not from nearby resistors.

    I had thought he was still testing with the 10VAC on the primary and so TX must be ok. :D My bad.

    Sounds like you may have an intermittent rectifier tube. Do you have another to try?

    Can you duet with less than 88 ?
    Maybe this instructor is very hands on. Like the drivers ed cars with 2 sets of controls. :D

    I think the 'Fr' marking on the schematic means flame retardant? So it may well be blown without any obvious visible clues. And if the power tube is bad and the screen resistor now open, it will...

    The battery may be new, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's voltage is getting where it's supposed to. Did you check? Is there a schematic available?

    In this case he has cathode resistors, which is why I asked for the voltage at the power tube cathodes. Then idle dissipation can be quickly calculated, and we can either say 'bias voltage needs to...

    You can use it without the keyway if you want. I usually put a scratch in the base so it's easier to see where to line up.
    If you have the old key you can also glue it back in place.
    Or you can...

    This means the capacitance could not be measured in circuit so it needs to be rechecked out of circuit. It may be leaky, or there was a parallel circuit path that would not allow a capacitance...

    What is pin1 of the power tube sockets connected to?
    How does the voltage shown at power tube cathodes compare?

    Like Enzo said, measure the current through the fuse, both when running and during the power-up surge.

    JTM style amp with a pair of KT66 should not require any more than 3A slow-blow fuse.

    Agree with The Dude. It must have had the board pulled at least for a solder touch up or something.

    Yes, I meant post #14, sorry (edited above).
    And I'm mistaken, Q means 60mm, not dual. A is 45mm.
    Q1 is single, Q3 is dual.
    So if you can find a Q1, the wiper should be the same as the P1.

    Have a look at the datasheet in post #14. As far as I know P is single and Q is dual. So I'd expect the wiper to be different.
