Transistor amps don't usually get hot enough to smell burnt unless something is actually burning! If you're lucky, there may be a layer of dust on something that normally gets warm enough to make the dust burn off. An unhappy possibility is that something is very wrong, and some component is about to protect the fuse by blowing first! :eek:
