Starting to make sense...I was getting U1 and IC1 confused when looking at the diagram. U1 (LT1054CP) charge pump is overheating, so just ordered a couple from Mouser.

Am I correct that a LT1054CP can replace the MAX1044 in IC1 also?

No, an ICL7660S replaces a max1044, not a LT1054. Note that pin 1 and 8 are connected together in both 1044's. A 1054 can only replace it when you break the trace connecting pin 1 and 8!!!

The main difference between the 1054 and 7660S (note the s at the end!!!) is that the 1054 can deliver more current and is more pricy than the 7660S. But also the 7660S needs to have pin 1 and 8 connected together else it may tend to make your effect squeal like a pig. the 1054 must not have pin 1 and 8 connected. If a 1054/7660 heats up there can be more wrong! Check all caps surrounding the 1044s especially C6,C7,C10, C14,C15,C27 and check polarity. Note the @-9V the polarity of the caps are reversed! If you do not check this, you might replace a 1044 just to find out that you are blowing it up again.

UPDATE: Small success...I replaced the U1 with the same chip the LT1054CP and at least the boost started working again. (Boost quit working after chip overheated) I ordered a couple ICL7660S to replace IC1.

QUESTION: My unit came with a MAX1044 in IC1 and a LT1054CP in U1 (as does the gut shot reflects in the beginning of this thread). It appears there is a trace connecting pins 1 to 8 on both U1 & IC1. Is this a mistake on the manufacturers part as far as substituting the wrong chips?

*EDIT#2: In other words, there should NOT have been a LT1054CP in U1 from the factory, if the circuit board trace is connecting pin 1 & 8...correct?

I did some research. Looks like my info is very outdated. There is no problem connecting pin 1 and 8 anymore with a LT1054. Source: http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/i ... c=112200.0

Cool...good to know. I've read that a MAX1044 max voltage is 10v and that powering it with a single One-Spot supply producing 9.45v and 1700ma is asking for trouble...and that's exactly what the guy I sold it to was powering it with.

Yes, a 7660S is rated at max +13V and is a safer bet.

Well...i'm in the home stretch. Replaced the MAX1044 in IC1 with an LT1054CP and I have signal passing thru now! Bad news is that there's the squeal that everyone refers to.

I have some 7660S coming in a few days, so will switch it out.

EDIT: Turned the gain down, plugged my guitar in and she is rockin' again! No squeal at reasonable gain settings.

Enjoy! PS. No need to replace the 1054 with 7660S.

Pedal sounds great...however it has a crackle so there is probably a bad cap.

- While replacing IC1 7660S made the drive side work again, I still do NOT get a negative dc voltage off of pin 5. Decoupling cap connecting pins 2 & 4 bad maybe....?

You could also consider to put Rx after C6 instead of before. Also you might consider a lower value then 10k (eg. 1k) if you think it is snooping off too much bass.

Personally I prefer this:

what does the zener diode do?

The Zener is there to protect the mosfet against possible static.
