today i went to use my power supply and it wouldn't turn on it is like 4-5 months old the fuse isn't blown and it sounds like there is sand inside the case when i rock it forward and back it rolls around.

im thinking it blew a cap. last time i used it, it smelled funny in my work room.

anybody ever had isues with protek stuff? i sent a message to amain since it is their brand. the manual has no warranty info but it does say it should provide YEARS of reliable use. i didn't even make it to half a year.

i had 2 of these power supply's and the other one is making the same wierd smell as this one did so im thinking they are both about shot.

it is the single output version that they no longer sell. i wonder if they are aware of the issue.

Who cares... its just money...

i ended up calling them yesterday and getting an RMA and sent them back. the guy on the phone made it sound like i would be getting the 40 amp super pro as a replacement since they discontinued the 40 amp pro.
