In Topic: XLS 5000 get very hot without any audio signal applied

Thanks a million for your input.      The amp is wired for 120 vac. There is no more than  6 millivolts max on each channel when it's measured with a multimeter.  I will check grounds and supply voltage on the power supply capacitors and then the output stage  bias next.

Hello Alain,
It get very hot to the touch where the heatsink is in the back of the amp in less than fifteen minutes. No, I didn't measure thet emp with a thermal thermometer as yet. The top and bottom of the amp gets hot where the output stage is. The fan is blowing out very hot air when you put your hand  where  the air comes out. The strange thing is no  input jacks  or speakers are connected to it and it gets hot. Thats why I am wondering if it's oscillations or a bias problem it has. I guess I will have to pull out the oscilloscope and multimeter soon.

You will need a schematic and a multimeter. R23,or  F3 might be open. F3 is rated for 500milliamps.  I had the same problem,but mines was caused from heavy grease building up in a resturant kitchen on the fans that caused F3 to open or blow.
