Question about Maytag 21 cu.ft. Top Mount Refrigerator, MTF2172HR

1 Answer

My Maytag MTF2172HR* keeps blowing the fuse

This is a new problem, as soon as you put in the plug, it blows my circtuit.
I don't think it'st the breaker, When you plug it in to a power strip, it blows the power strip's breaker.
We bought it used, after about 2 months, had to change the "Brain" of the Fridge, as the repairman called it. (Looks like a skinny red bull can, with wires connected to the fan, and, compressor.
Thanks,

Hello,
You guys are gonna LOVE this one.
I called a local appliance repair man, who said it sounds like the compressor.
He went on to tell me if it was the compressor, I would have forked over $75.00 to him, and, now need a new fridge, as it's probably not worth to replace.
I was a bit angry, so, deciding what to do, I started snooping around the back of the fridge.
Everything back there looks brand new, and clean, so I was starting to think it wasn't the compressor.
I put in a new breaker in the circuit panel, and, still blew.
As I was behind the fridge, I grabbed the power cord, and felt something strange- looked down, the power cord was cut through and twisted, exposing the little wires inside, and, visibly crossing them.
So, I'm going to go to the appliance store, and see if they have a replacement power cord.
Thanks,

What could be causing the front axillary fuse to keep blowing? Even bigger fuses blow.


fuses blow from over current( dead short) they are rated at lower than what is required so that the wire doesn't burn
If you keep putting in bigger fuses without fixing the dead short, eventually the wire will melt the plastic insulation off and the vehicle will burn

FUSE KEEPS BLOWING


It sounds like the A/C compressor clutch is shorted. You will need to have the clutch and / or the complete compressor replaced.

Mazda 626 ac fuse keeps blowing


Try unplugging the compressor then put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, the problem may be the clutch on the compressor.

Have an auto electrician look at it.

I had the same problem just last week. It turned out to be the idle regulator. Every time the IR got hot it would blow the fuse. You can drive the car without it attached but get it fixed asap. Got one for $40 from a spare parts place ($200 brand new) and my mechanic mate changed it for me (looked easy enough to do it yourself). Good luck.

Cobra 75 wx st fuse keeps blowing. As soon as I plug the transceiver into the connector box the fuse blows.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, check the reverse protection diode, D18 (1N4004). It would be located / connected at the power board of the DC connector.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Tv keeps blowing fuses when its plugged in...


There should not be any reason for the new TV to blow a 15 amps fuse in the house.
The TV has an internal short circuit even if it is new, I would suggest to return it and get another one.
Good Luck.
