Glentek - Amplifier Repair Services
We offer repair services on Glentek Amplifiers. This includes most all of the brush and brushless amplifiers used on Fadal Machines. Many customers choose to send their amp in for repair and use it as a spare rather then send it in for core credit.
Most of the time it can be repaired as long as the traces on the board are not blown. Models included in our repair services are AMP-0006, AMP-0021 (newer style only) and AMP-0039, 40, 41, or 54.

About AMC - Amplifiers
AMC Amplifiers are not repairable because for one reason the manufacturer scraped the part numbers off of the components to prevent them from being repaired or serviced. Also these Amplifiers have no "Internal Circuit Protection" built and are under powered making them not even worth repairing. They are the most unreliable and undesirable amplifier that you can have in your Fadal Machine. They were used in only 1 in 4 Fadal's as a second source to Glentek.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Not only are they not worth repairing but for the same reasons they are not worth purchasing. Our competitors love to sell these amplifiers because they are inexpensive and fail frequently. Back in the old days there was a famous saying among the service technicians at Fadal who always said "If it's black it will come back".
