power converter repair

My fan was making different sound than normal and was starting to smell hot in my Parallax/magnatek 6336 converter so I was going to see if I could repair it, but when I pulled the converter from the power center I found the floor had been very hot at some point in time this made up my mind to upgrade with new technology, a Progressive Dynamics PD4635 power converter from
I also made a small MOD. I cut a piece of cement backer board and placed it under the power center this raised it Ĺ inch above the previous placement and this only required new holes for the mounting screws.
I feel much better now with the cement between the power center and the floor plus the new converter is so quite you can hardly hear the fans running.

Nice job! Thanks for posting. This now helps folks with your old type converter know some choices that will fit.

By any chance can you post some larger pics? the site will hanlde up to 640 wide.

For some reason they are only showing up in like thumbnail size.

Not good on that heat stain....

gdlinder is an unknown quantity at this point
howdy, newbie here, call me guyman, bought a '94 sunline Saturn t2053 - fellow I bought from advised the powerbox was a mess and needed replaced - after looking in on it the upper section with the electrical wiring and breakers look ok, but the bottom section was/is a rusted mess - looks like a transformer, fan, electronic components, etc are nothing but rusted scrap - there is no name on the frame/box nor any type of identifiable numbers for parts or replacement - I'm in hopes this Progressive Dynamics will have a replacement for mine - it looks much like the one roymack posted the pic of so I appreciate your post and hope to find more good help on this site -
thanks again ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, guyman
