Default resistor blow up !

hi i have built this amp many ago :
http://www.ampslab.com/c200qc.htm
and use it in a guitar combo amp , it worked well till some days ago after a few hours of workin , its sound reduced and r22 burned up completely , but the whole amp work well ( not as before but not major change ) even after r22 burnin completly , i checked wires , cahnged the output transistors , changed the resistor w a higher wat , test it with diffrent speakers , but the problem still reamins , when i turn it on , after a few minutes the resistor start to burn , but not major change in quality of output sound , and all transistors and the psu working well and cold even while the resistor is burning ...

Hi,

If the Zobel's resistor get's hot, or it burns, then your amp is oscillating.
Check the C7 Miller-cap, or even change it to 100pF.

thnxk , in fact i completely removed C7 before !
i mean from the start ! , lol
i wanted to solder it again but it seems i blowed up all the circuit by a bad mistake , the input wire clashed w collector of mj15016 ( i used mj15015/16 ) and after a big spark ! there s no sound come out of it !
lol !!!
i m tryin to fix it and use c7 again , is it possible that burnin of r22 was becuz of lack of c7 ?

cheers

That was a really irresponsible action!

Yes. R22's burning was caused by lack of C7.

So, let's solder a 47-100pF cap in place of C7! Your problem will be solved.

And always remember: in such amplifier topology Miller cap (here it's C7) is really necessary, never remove it!

Best regards,
