06/15/2006, 12:19 AM
Hey, well i've had my RK1 for over a year now. i love it to death. However, recently i've been blowing fuses left and right, and nothing has changed. However after my last major fuse blow, which was due to a heater shorting channel 5 stays ON regardless of what the programing is. Anyways i was wondering if you guys had any suggestions. I am upgrading tanks soon, so i may just upgrade to the RK2, but in the meantime... I would like to avoid this. Thanx again DA!

There are many factors that can affect fuse life. If you are using a chiller and as we go into the summer months you may find that you're just over the power rating of the unit.
Also, the heater shorting out is what most likely damaged channel 5. We can fix that for you but you would need to send your unit in for the repair.
