    A Axis Amp Fault

    This my first fadal, VMC 3016, 2005, With A axis.
    the a was working fine and now im getting a Amp Fault on startup and cant jog or move it. it seems the A Axis doesnt have a normal amplifier like the x,y,z axis in the control cabinet and the D3 indicator light is solid red on that axis control card. Anyone out there have a 4th axis and might know how to help please let me know. im not sure where to start since all other troubleshooting is for main axis problems.

    Thank you

    ...most likely the A axis Glentek DC AMP-0006 has failed and the only thing in Field serviceable is the 15amp Fuse....If, possible replace the AMP-0006 with the out of production Advanced Motion Control AMP-0014 but, they are getting hard to find at a good price.

    Also check the Heater Reset button Its white they do not reset automatically. And depending on your machine setup there could easily be 3 of them 1 for the spindle 1 for the xyz chassis and 1 for the a axis
