5 amp fuse in tray located at the back of the amp just above the power connector.

Peavey Xr 8600 8... | Answered 2 days ago

You could try Googleing it, if you havn't already. Another method I've used on other guitars was to carfully remove the neck from the rest of the guitar. Manufacturers often put the production year on a tag or even printed directly on the wood body under the interfacing part of the neck. Some risk= "what if I damage my guitar?"

The Peavey PV-10 is an unpowered mixer. Simply bypass it with a signal source to troubleshoot its operation. The problem is elsewhere.

Sounds like a faulty potentiometer. See if you can get to it and spray the inside with switch cleaner. Don't use WD40. The unit looks like a standard volume control, or does it switch in notches?

Oops, I missed it is a foot switch. Replace the switch or try to clean as above. If all three switches are giving the same problem and are known to work on other units, then they must be a bridging connection to its plug socket.

Not sure about the KB-1, but many newer Peavey amps
( A Vyper for example)
have the fuse soldered to the circuit board.
If you're going to go through the effort of soldering, I'd suggest buying, and soldering in, a rear panel accessible fuse holder, so you only need to do it once.

Turn your guitar away from the amp's speakers. The pickups on the guitar are feeding the amp's signal back into the amp creating a feedback loop, especially with the gain button on. Loud volumes cause this looping path between the amp speakers and guitar pickups. You may need to reduce amp volume also.

What kind of casters are you installing? There are two types, ones that have a shaft sticking up from the base and ones that only have the flat base with four screw holes - I recommend using the flat base ones. There is no real easy way to open up the bottom of the cabinet as it is glued and then covered with the tolex or similar material. If you have the ones with a shaft I recommend getting the other type. The shaft has a socket you have to install in the bottom which makes them removable. There is no reason to remove the casters so get the ones that are screw mounted.

Yes..these amps due have fuses.
Check to make sure the fuse is good, it should be close to the power cord in the back under a small, black, screw on type knob.

are you the original owner, with a receipt? This amp has a 5 year warranty. If not take it to a shop, we can fix them, they are damn complicated for an magic inside.
