Default Adcom GFA 555 amp - Troubleshooting Q

Hi,

I seem to have lost the 'right side speaker' of the amp. The speaker is fine and plays fine when I plug it into the left side. Does a second fuse exist for the right or left side in the unit?

Thoughts on trouble shooting this?

Default GFA 555 amp - 6 amp 125 volt fuse

Hi,

Local radio shack doesn't carry these little 6 amp 125 volt fuses. They carry 6amp 250 ? I assume I need the 6 amp 125. Sorry, I've never had to take one of these apart. Suggestions on location to purchase these?

I believe I have this figured out..Need to figure out which fuse. I pulled out 6amp 125 volt. Radio shack doesn't carry these...they carry 6amp 250's. Thoughts? If not, where to get the 6amp 125's...should they be slow blow?

The voltage rating isn't important as long as the fuse fits in the holder (right size) If you look at the blown fuse it should say either 6AF or 6AT. F is fast, T is time delay (sloblo)

If in doubt, use a fast.

Of course, you need to fix the problem that caused the fuse to blow first

...and I merged your two threads.

Thanks for merging my two threads. The time delay thread approval has me thrown for a loop.

So, a 6 amp 250 watt is a fine replacement for a 6 amp 125 volt? the markings are BEL 3AG 6A125V

Yes you can use the 6A 250 volt fuse instead.

Now as to why it blew....did you do something (like moving cables around while blasting music) that may have caused a problem resulting in the blown fuse?
