Re: Fuse for the M-400

Well, that could be Wayne's problem too. The fuse is right up front in the triac circuit. If the amp is shorted the triac will try to draw full load and blow the fuse. Unfortunately, working on an M-400 is kinda like defusing a bomb. Lots of knowledge required to go in there and troubleshoot.
It should sound like it isn't there!
