I have the same amp.  A couple of months ago, a thread with the similar problem 
was discussed and "cussed."  It seems to center around the "step-start" relay.  
Ether the contacts need to be "cleaned"...or the resistor is bad....or 
like that.  You might want to check the archives.  You might also call 
and they might be able to help you with parts

 In our day and age it seems that Common Sense is in short supply.  If you 
have any Common Sense - get some Common Sense and use it.  If you can't find 
Common Sense, ask for help from somebody who has some Common Sense.  Is Common 
Sense divine?

Common Sense is the image of the Creator expressing revealed truth in my mind.

Hello to the list.

My AL- 82 (4 months old) blows the two fuses on the rear panel for what seems 
be no reason at all.  Switch on the power, fan rolls up to speed, all seems 
well. Either when tuning or at a already tuned position, one or both of the 
fuses lets go.

Replace the fuses, switch the amp back on again and all is well for no 
particular length of time. It might go a week or a month,it make take out two 
fuses in a few moments. A

Thought I'd poll the members of this list for ideas before calling Ameritron. 
Fwiw, it is on 240V, line voltage is very stable here in Sacramento county.

Anyone else having this quirky issue?
