  • Re: Beomaster 6500 Noisy transformer/power supply capacitors

    Thank You Picture of my bolt fixing to cure transformer noise/vibration due to the original washers disintegrating. All parts easily available. The shoulder washer should fit snugly into the transformer bolt holes. I used a little super glue on the shoulder head. Gerard

    I used M6 nylon shoulder washers with a combination of rubber/metal washers. I’ll upload a picture shortly. With regard to the transformer tape, I have not noticed any extra heat but will monitor this. Looking back I should have just secured the area which was originally taped and was coming away. Using electrical spray glue may have been the way to go. I will revisit this since replacing the washers gave me the improvement I was looking for. Thanks for pointing this out.

After replacing the 8 washers and adding extra rubber washers the noise was greatly reduced. Further improved by adding more electrical tape on the transformer to completely cover the windings. Whilst I have the unit cover removed, I was thinking about replacing 3 of the electrolytic capacitors related to the power supply which
