mains fuse blowing after shut down
Howdy,  
 
 
 
On my DIY Trainwreck-less ( a trainwreck expresso with a 2nd EF86 matchless channel), when I shut it off and then turn it on several hours later, the mains fuse is blown?  
 
 
 
 
 
What gives?  
 
 
 
Info: 0.8A fuse and standby has a 1M resistor across poles. Solid state rectified with a single IN4007 on each HT.  
 
 
 
Thanks,  
 
Pierre
