Hello all,

Complete newbie here but excited about getting to grips with my new project - a rather dirty Cyclone that appears to have made its way from Germany to Australia...

Anyway, there seem to have been a couple of strange additions to the backbox - a couple of brackets instead of the interconnect board on the left, some large wood additions on the right - both easily removed with a screwdriver, but the bit I can't understand (and I'm very new at circuit boards) is the addition of extra fuses on the backboard - see pics. Can anyone help me out as to why they might be there? I'm assuming I should remove them (once I've worked out where all the wires go)?

As a fyi I haven't turned the machine on yet as I need to change the plug from European to Australian but I've been told the GI board works but not much else - much investigation to come I think!

Thank you in advance!

Looks like someone added the piece of wood, and then had to move the fuses that are normally on the RH side of the backbox.

Thanks - those ones on the right are still there I think - you can see them in this pic once the wood was removed. Are these 4 random ones also additional ones which are usually on the right too?

Many thanks!

Those are the fuses for the GI, normally located where the piece of wood is now mounted as vid mentioned. I really wonder what that piece of wood is for? Almost looks like its holding the power board in place...

Also, get rid of those leaky batteries ASAP!

That's super helpful thanks - didn't find those fuses in the backbox parts listing in the manuals. I will put them back where they belong! Yes, the batteries are coming off tomorrow - it only arrived this afternoon and I've only had a chance to unscrew those bits of wood so far.

Thanks again.
