    My 3 year old son decided to play with my Lead 55lv.

    He turned the ohm switch a couple of times so know I don't know
    where it should be.

    It has five selections, 4, 8, 16 and Z.

    I turn the switch clock wise and it clicks 11 times.
    Of course it's way of some marking but if anybody could
    help me that would be great !

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have a 2*12 Avatar Cab that's 8ohm.

    I really want to start learning about amps and
    work on them but I'm afraid I just might kill myself.

    Many selector switches have little metal tabs that can be bent up to limit the travel of the selector. It sounds like your have been broken by cranking it too hard. You'll have to dismantle the thing to see if you can put it right by bending them back. It could be, however, that they are broken off. :( Its a good idea to fix this as I'm sure the "other" new settings disconnect the speaker altogether and allow the amplifier to run into no load. This is not a good thing!

    Thanks for the info.

    I never run the amp into no load but I have wondered what could happen
    and what can get damaged if that happens ?

    I contacted Greg Germino and he's super nice.
    He is sending me a new selector switch for free !

    I just have to find somebody to install it for me.
