PGXL how hot is too hot?
I just opened a ticket with Flex, but of course it happens to be Friday, just after closing time, so I am posting here just to get some ideas between now and Monday.
I've only owned this PGXL for ten days and just noticed it is running hot - 50-60 degrees, even though I am on 120V and only pumping 600W. This is on SSB and CW, not digital/full duty cycle. Last night I fished out the "final QC passed" sticker which appeared to be blocking the air intake. I never noticed the sticker before, so assume it must have come loose in packing/shipping from it's intended location on the front of the amp. Anyway, 50-60 degrees seems pretty hot for 600W. I have adequate spacing front and back of rig. I only noticed this in the last couple of days, but cannot say for certain if the amp has been hot from the start or this is something new.
F/W is current - 3.5.23. Any ideas?
