Had a surge yesterday. It was on a power conditioner but although everything else on the conditioner came back up, the board will not. Is there a hidden fuse anyone knows of? Any thoughts?
Mine is fixed..
.... Ran out of fuel and didn't power off to restart..
<snip> I don't care how big or "pretty" the genny is. It gets run for a good 3 or 4 minutes before I even plug in a lightbulb.note- FOH lights go on-load before the console and racks get fired up.Maybe that's just an old-timer talking, but 25 or 30 years ago, that's how I was shown to handle ANY power-up, not just on genny.
I'm guessing the large genies have a such a feature... maybe those smaller ones with electric start?The answer to my own question: cost?Anyway, glad you sorted the mixer out - and shared your experience.frank
Maybe an old-timer, but electricity hasn't changed all that much. Maybe the electronics are better(maybe not), but still a reasonable procedure.+1 on surge suppressors not being of much help, +1 on voltage regulators (Furman 1215),+1 the on-line UPS So my rhetorical question is why Yamaha has buried the main fuse like that. I guess the convoluted thought logic is that if the fuse blows it is because some non-user-serviceable part failed inside so why be able to just replace the fuse if it has to go on the bench anyway?So my last stupid question (of this post, anyway) -- Most gennies don't start easily under load -- The load isn't happy in many cases while the gennie is stabilizing Why don't gennies have a timed or voltage controlled relay that disconnects the load for startup that reconnects when the gennie stabilizes? Just about every vehicle has a load-shed relay or two to provide max battery to start. I'm guessing the large genies have a such a feature... maybe those smaller ones with electric start?The answer to my own question: cost?Anyway, glad you sorted the mixer out - and shared your experience.frank
