Sparks coming from FBT

I downloaded a manual and we have sparks coming from the FBT. Not even sure what FBT stands for. Can this be fixed? If so, can we do it and where to get the part, or do we need to take it to a repair shop. Don't want a huge repair bill - when a new TV is about the same.

    I have a meter somewhere but haven't found it yet. We have been working on the house and things get out of place. The only thing we found was an outlet voltage tester. Could this repair get expensive? If so maybe we should just put the money into a new TV. Any thoughts?

If the sparks are coming from the flyback transformer then it needs to be replaced. You would need to be able to use a meter to determine if more damage has been done or not. Let me know If you can use a meter and i will give you some stuff to check. If you take this to a repair shop you can bet on $400-$600 for repair.

Possible failure of the motor and so it must be shut down before it can become dangerous. If the sparks are seen to come from the inside of the motor it can be due to even water logging or a failed winding. Confirm and replace.

Sparks coming from inside of oven

This is a simple fix.

You need to remove the rack and all of the holders.

Clean the metal thoroughly where the rack mounts fit.

Replace all the rack mounts with new ones, insert the rack and you're all set.

Then be sure to keep it really clean, even if you have to remove the rack and new mounts periodically to get it really clean.

My tv will not come on and sparks when i plug it in

If it sparks when plugged in that means the main fuse in the tv is not blown. If there was sorting wrong with the tv and you saw sparks the fuse should blow. If the fuse blew you will not see sparks anymore and the set will not come on. But if the fuse did not blow one of the following can be the cause.

1. A short in the line cord, check you plug and wire to make sure there are no breaks in the wire.
2. Sparking can be from a bad outlet, a plug that is not making good connection can cause sparking, try plugging in to another outlet if it still sparks check the prongs and make sure they are not blackened.
