Thanks - and to your's.

If I don't get another chance to say it before the time - have a great New Year celebration (assuming you celebrate!), and a great 2013.

If this one turns out like the previous 64 I've seen, I'll just sleep through it and let the kids bang pans, if they can stay up.

Cheers.

Wishing you and yours a healthy and prosperous new year.

What is the nameplate voltage of the cabinet? What voltage is being supplied?

Somebody will need to explain to AP where the nameplate is located and how to check supply voltage.

I am in agreement with post #8. The operating Voltage for the equipment is not correctly configured.

I doubt that anyone here will know the blower resistance, unless they just so happen to have the same unit. Once again, what are the nameplate data on this cabinet? Id the motor 1-phase or 3-phase? Does it have any capacitor? What is the fuse rating?

Is anything blocking the fan from turning?

Thats my problem sir, actually the supplier of this BSC don't give me a service manual.All i did is to perform resistance check of the line wire of the blower through the main board of the BSC.The blower have a 230 vac but i dont know if it is 1 phase or 2 phase.But only I know the function of this blower is for Inflow and downflow air velocity of the BSC.

The trouble or problem is when you plug-in into wall outlet the 2 fuse of the BSC suddenly blown.

Maybe a loose wire in the unit is touching electrical earth/ground. You should get somebody to check everything with an ohmmeter at least, and maybe even a megohmmeter.
