> My beloved Centurion Amplifier, pair of 3-500z's, has developed a problem.
> My manual for this unit is at my winter place and not available for another

> The unit blows primary fuses. After the smell subsided, I opened the unit

> I have found a tiny "thingme" black, about 3/8 wide by inch long labeled I

> microswitch - if thats what it is then I need a new one that is all there.
> This one has a part of it missing, at least it looks like I can see some of
> the insides. The little push button that the cabinet top would push on has

> If this "thingme" is a microswitch what is it connected to that will let it

> Sure would be nice if this turns out to be something both cheap and simple
> Input desired please.
