RETURN THE SPIDER. Depending on what kind of Spider you got, either look into Roland Cubes or Vox Valvetronixes, or some 5 watt tube amps.
why the hell did you buy that in the first place?

Return it. Cube's are pretty reliable amps, even for China/Taiwan made stuff.
Return it.

I love the other responses in this thread.

I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
If you found a spider in your bath, you'd maybe roll up a paper or get a slipper, but this is different - take it back, get something decent. Let this be a lesson about Line 6 reliability.
your spider broke down?...thats nothing new, consider yourself lucky.

now go get a Roland Cube amp or Vox
I have a micro cube, they sound much better than the spider, (which I tried a few at my store to compare at one time) and the cubes are very flexible, they will do cleans to metal and everything in between.

Vox aren't much more reliable guys... I have heard LOTS of stories of the lower end ones crapping out after a year or two, and the larger ones having issues, particularly when using the power level control or whatever it is. They are probably all made in one giant factory in China, and the are about as reliable, the only exception being the Cube, but its made in Taiwan IIRC. That said, the Vox DOES have a richer sound quality to it, but its not built any better.
