Someone just gave me a dead Linn Classik K.It won't power up. I checked the owners manual, but it doesn't show where the fuses are located. Nothing on the outside. Took the cover off but still didn't see any fuses. The back of the unit reminds folks to disconnect the power cord before changing the fuse, but doesn't happen to mention where the fuse is. Tired of playing hide-and-seek. Anyone know where I should look?

Be aware that if there is a significant fault in the unit - it will earn a trip to Scotland for repair -

I found one on the sidewalk with a cryptic error message- and off it went....
Happy Listening

Nope. Nothing under the IEC input. I assume that this is a "K" because it says, in very small print, "classikk" on the bottom panel, and the layout matches the Classik K in the online owner's manuals. No fuse holders anywhere on the outside, and after taking the top cover off, I don't see any fuses inside. ????

It's in the IEC plug (on the cord).

UK USERS PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMAT

Fuse replacement
This appliance is fitted with a non-rewireable 13 A
mp mains plug. The plug
contains a 5 Amp fuse. If the fuse has blown it can
be replaced as follows:
a) Pull out the red fuse cover/carrier.
b) Remove and dispose of the blown fuse.
c) Fit a new 5 Amp BS1362 approved fuse into the car
rier and push the carrier
back into the plug.
Always ensure the fuse cover is fitted. If the fuse
cover is missing do not use the
plug. Contact your Linn retailer to obtain a replac

Thanks! The gadget came with an ordinary power cord, sans fuse. I will rig up an inline fuse for testing.
