I would suggest a call to the Rowland factory. The factory is very helpful with this kind of issue and can still service the amp.

The owners manual shows two breakers one per channel and says nothing about a fuse, but it sure looks like the type of IEC connector with one of those tiny little fuses built in. Ask your friend to look real close where the power cord plugs in. Look for a little tab or indent to pull out. This one looks to be the bottom half of the receptacle. Usually a little screwdriver will fit in there. Slides straight out.
Pray that's it. Because Rowland is one of these no tamper guys who seals em.
Had one of my Model 6 monoblocs go into protection and shut down yesterday. I got quite aggressive with the volume knob.
I unplugged the AC mains and let it rest for about 20 minutes. Reconnected the mains, still no power. I then disconnected the amp from the system entirely and discovered a breaker switch on the back, which I see had been tripped.
Clicked it back, connected the amp, plugged in the mains, BAMMO. Back in action.
