But how hot is it getting? Mine only geta some above ambiant temp, have always been able to lay hand on it, and keep it there.

Mine gets pretty hot.....I'm not sure if I could leave my hand on it or not, I've never tried. It doesn't make any odd noises or anything and so far has worked just fine. Of course our daily temps are running in the high 90s and my garage is probably even a little warmer so that may have something to do with it?

Default Re: charger getting very hot

i have repaired quite a few chargers in my campground...... i would replace the "DIODE BRIDGE RECTIFIER" about $5 (it's square and black in color with 4 terminals on it. one of the sides has the corner CUT at an angle .

make a wiring diagram before you change it.....

eventually when it goes FULLY bad it will make the transformia HUM and blow the front panel circuit breaker.......

(by the way the transformia is $225 and the diode is only $3.49 at Jameco.com )
