Author Topic: Rewiring AL-80B to 110 volts  (Read 1434 times)

I'm buying a used AL-80B which is currently wired for 220v power, and I'll be rewiring it for 110v.  I can't seem to find anything about the fuse I need to get though.  I understand that I need to replace the 10 amp fuse with a 20 amp fuse, but the AL-80B manual doesn't give any other specs on fuses besides amp rating and that they must be "fast-blow" type.  Are the fuses used in these amps really that generic?

When I get the amp I plan on pulling out the existing fuse and looking it over for manufacturer/model info, but I thought I'd post the question here since I don't really expect to find any info on the fuse.

Can anyone point me to a source for the correct fuse?

Thanks,
Mike

There are two fuses.  Ameritron recommends 20A fast-blow for 120V line operation.

That would be a standard glass cartridge 3AG 250V fuse type, commonly available.  Yes, they are pretty generic.

Perfect--that's exactly what I was looking for!

Thanks!
